Florida Georgia Line to make tour stop in Iowa
Over the past year, Florida Georgia Line has cherished the good times seeing their Quadruple Platinum debut single “Cruise” dominate Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart at No. 1 for 19 straight weeks, the longest stretch for any song in the past 50 years and their aptly titled, Gold-certified Republic Nashville debut “Here’s To The Good Times” top the Billboard Country Albums Chart.
The breakout duo has taken home ACM and CMT awards and scored opening slots for Taylor Swift’s The Red Tour and Luke Bryan’s Dirt Road Diaries Tour.
This fall the buzzworthy newcomers will celebrate with their fans as they cruise into Cedar Rapids’ US Cellular Center on Nov. 2 on their first headline run – Here’s To The Good Times Tour 2013. Tickets are on sale now and will be available at the US Cellular Center Box Office, all Ticketmaster locations, charge by phone at 800-745-3000, and online at www.ticketmaster.com.
Florida Georgia Line has skyrocketed since releasing back-to-back, multi-week No. 1 smashes in the US and Canada with the Platinum-certified “Get Your Shine On” and “Cruise,” which combined with the Top 10-and-climbing (Top 40 Charts) remix featuring Nelly, has sold nearly 5 million downloads.
The recordbreaking duo, comprised of Tyler Hubbard (Monroe, Georgia) and Brian Kelley (Ormond Beach, Florida), is the first in 21 years to top the Country airplay charts with their first two singles, according to Billboard. The ACM New Artist of the Year and New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year winner’s current single “Round Here” is Top 20-and-rising at Country radio.
“We can’t wait to give our fans what they have been asking for all year our own headline tour,” Tyler Hubbard said. “It is unreal and the first night of the tour can’t get here fast enough.”
Brian Kelley said, “This is another dream of ours coming true. I couldn’t be more excited and more proud of the tour. Having Colt, Dallas and Tyler along with us is going to make for a party.”
