Florida Georgia Line to debut new music video for “Stay” this week

Florida Georgia Line
Florida Georgia Line will debut the brand new music video for the passion-fueled "Stay" across multiple media platforms this week. CMT will air the 48-hour exclusive broadcast premiere today (10/7) on the network as well as on its all-music channel, CMT Pure. The first look online and on apps is slated for Wednesday (10/9) across VEVO, the world's leading all-premium music video and entertainment platform.

Known for their hit party anthems and high-energy live show, FGL's Brian Kelley (Ormond Beach, Florida) and Tyler Hubbard (Monroe, Georgia) showcase a much different side in their latest offering. Shot outside of Nashville, the video for "Stay" features vivid imagery of a couple whose fiery emotions reach a boiling point, causing each to struggle with their next move in the relationship. Director Peter Zavadil reinforces the raw scenes with flashes of FGL performing the powerful song.

Exclusive: Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley only has eyes for his girlfriend

Update:  If you're curious just who Brian is dating, you can find out the answer to that question here.

Florida Georgia Line has had a massive year of success off the mainstream appeal of "Cruise," a hip-hop fused track with a remix starring rapper Nelly. As the lead single from their major label debut "Here's To The Good Times," the duo (comprised of Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard) is breaking down the boundaries that separate country music from pop.

During last week's CMA Awards event in New York City, Brian and Tyler (alongside Sheryl Crow) announced the nominees for this year's 47th Annual CMA Awards, set for Nov. 6. Scoring four nods themselves, this hip-hop-country duo is certainly blazing a trail, which has not gone unnoticed by the voters.

NashvilleGab had the chance to catch up with the duo at the event, which took place at the Best Buy Theatre in Times Square. The brief encounter gave us a chance to get to the heart of it all (and something every woman is dying to know): What kind of girl makes them want to "Cruise"?

CMA Nominations 2013: Predictions and Speculation

Screen Shot 2013-09-06 at 6.33.51 AM

Can you believe the CMA Awards are only a few short months away? As the color begins to fade from the trees, it's time to break out the thinking caps and conjure up hopeful predictions for Country Music's Biggest Night.

On Tuesday, Sept. 10, this year’s nominations will be unveiled by Sheryl Crow and Florida Georgia Line live from New York City. Ahead of the announcement, I thought I would take a stab at predicting who will earn some deserved (or not-so-deserved) nods. This is simply based on sales and which way the winds are blowing — definitely not founded on any artistic merits, per se.

Side note: I'll be live on scene in NYC on Tuesday, so look out for my coverage.

Chart Roundup – Week of August 10th, 2013

Runnin-Outta-Moonlight

Well folks, it’s happened. Florida Georgia Line have
surpassed the record for number of consecutive weeks spent at #1 on Hot Country
Songs with ‘Cruise’. They are the all-time record holders (Jason
Scott, one of our writers, had a rant about this today
). In addition, ‘Cruise’
is #1 on Country Digital Songs, and their album ‘Here’s To The Good Times’ is
still #1 on Top Country Albums.  Their
latest single, ‘Round Here’ is at #6 on Hot Country Songs and Country Digital Songs,
and #12 on Country Airplay, while ‘Get Your Shine On’ remains popular at #20 on
Country Digital Songs and #22 on Hot Country Songs. Basically, in a short space
of time, they’ve taken over the genre.

Why Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise” is the death of modern country music [A Rant]

After having my first cup of iced coffee this morning (Aug. 1), I began the ritual of scanning my Reader feed for noteworthy news items. Of course, the first one I locked my eyes on was Billboard's story about Florida Georgia Line and their hick-hop smash "Cruise." The song has officially spent 22 weeks at No. 1 on Hot Country Songs and is the longest running song at the summit in the history of forever and ever amen.

I should add that Taylor Swift's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" also broke a record after the new controversial chart metholodogy was implemented last fall. The completely pop song broke Connie Smith's previously held record for a solo female and spent 10 weeks at the top. But I digress. (Note: I bring this up because both acts are on Big Machine).

Anyways, "Cruise" is now the hottest song to ever be released in country music, due mostly from a remix featuring rapper Nelly…
