Florida Georgia Line launched onto the country music scene with their smash hit “Cruise.” The song has earned them three CMA Awards nominations, including Single of the Year, Musical Event of the Year for the remix featuring Nelly and Duo of the Year. It’s still hard for them to believe the level of success they are enjoying.
“It’s really wild,” Tyler Hubbard said. “It truly is. As a songwriter, it’s kinda like the stuff you dream about. To be able to be an artist and get to travel and play your song for people and to see the response is such a blessing.”
One of the duo’s favorite moments in their live show is when they play “Cruise.” “To start ‘Cruise’ with just the chords, with just the vocals, and hear everybody start screaming and they’re so loud, we couldn’t even hear ourselves,” Tyler said. “We hope to have many more of those days and nights with fans that are just going crazy and keep spreading the wildfire.”
Florida Georgia Line will perform during the CMA Awards, which air live on ABC at 8/7c on Wednesday, November 6. Before the show, turn to Great American Country at 7/6c for CMA Red Carpet Live to catch all the stars on the CMA Awards Red Carpet!
