Watch Florida Georgia Line’s New “Sun Daze” Music Video

Florida Georgia Line's 'Anything Goes' Album

Florida Georgia Line released a comical new video for their latest single, “Sun Daze.” The video opens on the almost unrecognizable duo dressed as businessmen, plugging away at their office jobs. After a less-than-pleasant run in with their boss, the video cuts to the pair at a poolside party full of shenanigans — animal costumes included.

Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard cowrote “Sun Daze” along with Cary Barlowe, Jesse Frasure and Sarah Buxton. Their recently released sophomore album, Anything Goes, includes “Sun Daze” and “Dirt,” the first single off the album.

Watch the “Sun Daze” video below:

Kenny Chesney Adds Jake Owen, Chase Rice, and Cole Swindell to Big Revival Tour

Kenny Chesney Performs at The Big Revival Tour

Kenny Chesney’s 2015 Big Revival Tour keeps getting bigger. He has added Jake Owen, Chase Rice, and Cole Swindell to the tour. The three acts will join him for select dates of the summer tour. While rice and Swindell are turning heads with their debut albums, Chesney is recognizing them for their songwriting abilities.

“When I came to town, I was a writer, trying to get my songs cut — and playing on a stool down on Lower Broadway,” he said. “I didn’t have nearly the success Cole and Chase are enjoying right now, but I know the difference getting your music in front of an audience makes. For both of these guys, who have a lot of energy and a real way of grabbing people, I think it’s the perfect way to get the audience fired up for the show.”

Jake Owen is no stranger to a Chesney tour. This will mark the third time Owen has hit the road with Chesney. Owen’s laid-back personality and fun songs like “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” and “Days of Gold” fit right in with Chesney’s fan base. Continue Reading

Jason Aldean Releases His New Single “Just Gettin’ Started”

Jason Aldean

Jason Aldean has released “Just Gettin’ Started” as his latest single. The track, found on his recently released Old Boots, New Dirt album, is the follow-up to “Burnin’ It Down,” which reached No. 1 on the country charts and sold more than one million copies. Written by Chris DeStefano, Rhett Akins and Ashley Gorley, the party anthem is a sharp contrast from the more sensual “Burnin’  It Down.”

“Just because I’m a country artist doesn’t mean I don’t hear things in other forms of music that I think are really cool and could work for what we’re doing here,” he said. “From the very beginning, we’ve always tried to cut great songs. Some of those songs are about promoting having a good time — driving trucks, fishing, hunting, because that’s just what we do — but I would like to think that some stuff on this album is a little deeper, too.”
