Fresh off their ACM New Artist win, my partner and I caught up with Brian from Florida Georgia Line. The boys are both single, and God knows if I (or any living thing with a baloney pony) were in their shoes I’d be dropping the hammer on the daily.
“Ya know what? You never know where the night’s gonna go. We’ve had some good nights on the bus so far, and it’s a good place to lay your head for sure.”
Tyler told CMA Close Up that his favorite artist is LIL’ WAYNE. I asked Brian about that, and he rattled off the eclectic list of artists that have influenced the music of FGL.
“Lil’ Wayne is definitely an influence of both of ours. That’s probably one of Tyler’s all-time favorite artists. I’d say the style is different in what we do, but there’s definitely some influence that’s rubbed off from Lil’ Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Garth Brooks, Alabama, Lynyrd Skynyrd. All sorts of stuff in our music.”
He also shared his thoughts about the possibility of the Boston Marathon terror attack affecting concert attendance.
