Florida Georgia Line is an American country pop duo consisting of vocalists Brian Kelley (from Ormond Beach, Florida) and Tyler Hubbard (from Monroe, Georgia). They have achieved major success since their inception and are one of the most successful country music acts of the 2010s. The young duo quickly emerged after several years starting their careers by making covers. Their music has been tagged as bro-country, transitioning from the traditional country feel to their hybrid sounds and their lyrical focus about backroads, girls, alcoholic drinks and trucks. Their 2012 debut single "Cruise" became a smash hit, breaking two records. "Cruise" was downloaded over seven million times, making it the first country song ever to receive the Diamond certification, and the best-selling digital country song of all time with 24 weeks at number one until it was surpassed in July 2017 by Sam Hunt's "Body Like a Back Road". Florida Georgia Line was formed in 2010 in Nashville, Tennessee. In December 2011, they signed a publishing, production and management deal with Big Loud Mountain, Craig Wiseman's (Big Loud Shirt Publishing), Joey Moi's (Mountain View Records), and Kevin "Chief" Zaruk's partnership. Their second EP, It'z Just What We Do, charted on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. They played on the 2012 Country Throwdown Tour, along with acts such as Josh Thompson, Corey Smith, Gary Allan, Justin Moore, and Rodney Atkins. They have also opened for Luke Bryan, Brantley Gilbert, Jake Owen, Jason Aldean, Colt Ford, and Dierks Bentley.
On July 16, 2012, they signed with Republic Nashville, part of the Big Machine Label Group. They released their second album, Anything Goes on October 14, 2014, and their third, Dig Your Roots, was released on August 26, 2016.
