Florida Georgia Line has broken a record previously held by Taylor Swift. The duo’s new single, “Dirt,” earned 127 Mediabase radio adds last week, making it the most-added song on country radio in one week since adds have been recorded. Swift previously held the record for 116 adds of her 2012 single “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together. “Dirt” is the lead single from the duo’s upcoming album and a bit of a departure from what fans expect from the pair.
“We’re trying to step our game up,” Brian Kelley said. “We’ve got a couple of awesome songs that we’re pumped about everybody hearing. [We] can’t wait to get the new stuff out. It’s definitely [going to] have evolved from record one, but it’s still going to have that FGL feel, but we’re going to take some chances here and there.”
In conjunction with their new single, the pair have launched their Dirt Campaign. They hope to raise $100,000 for Habitat for Humanity, to help those in need purchase their own homes. Fans who donate will automatically be entered to win a chance to go on the This Is How We Cruise Tour, which benefits Habitat for Humanity.
There is no official release date for Florida Georgia Line’s new album, but it is expected out this fall.
