Florida Georgia Line’s latest single, “Dirt,” is a departure from their party anthem hits like “Cruise” and “This Is How We Roll.” The song’s different feel inspired the duo to record it, along with its firm reminder of their country roots.
“We’ve done the party songs, we’ve done the upbeat fun stuff, and this is just a song that everybody can relate to,” Tyler Hubbard said. “People young or people older, everybody kinda has that place in their life that’s home and that they have a special spot in their heart for. I think that’s the kinda thing we’re trying to capture with this song.”
The duo knew they would record it after just one listen. “When we first heard ‘Dirt’, I mean, we were blown away,” Hubbard said. “It was one of those songs, you kinda get done listening, you have chill bumps on your arms, and you’re just like, wow, I can really relate to that. It hit us hard the first time we heard it.”
In addition to goose bumps, they also liked the song’s message. “(It’s) just kind of a little reminder of the importance of where you came from, where you grew up, and just in general where you live now and whatever that area is for you in your life,” Hubbard explained.
Florida Georgia Line will release their highly anticipated album, Anything Goes, on October 14, featuring “Dirt.” Watch their “Dirt” music video >>
