Nashville, TN (May 14, 2013) – Marking their second consecutive multi–week #1, Florida Georgia Line's Gold-certified smash “Get Your Shine On” held on to the top spot in US and Canada this week on four charts – Mediabase Country Chart, Billboard Country Chart, Mediabase Canada Country Airplay Chart and BDS Canada Country Airplay Chart. Continuing to shine at Country radio, the record–breaking duo is the first in 21 years to top the Country airplay charts with their first two singles, according to Billboard. The accolades keep coming for FGL, who also scored the #1 music video at CMT Canada with the hot single and earned Triple Platinum certification for their infectious debut “Cruise.”

The good times will continue across VEVO, the world’s leading all-premium music video and entertainment platform, as FGL joins the outlet’s coveted emerging artist program, LIFT. Beginning May 20, VEVO will feature exclusive content from the hot newcomers. FGL’s selection for LIFT comes on the heels of yesterday’s (5/13) VEVO premiere of their brand new music video for the “Cruise” Remix (featuring Nelly).

Garnering buzz among fans, media and several Superstars across genres – including Taylor Swift, Keith Urban and Ed Sheeran – the breakout duo has skyrocketed since releasing the Triple Platinum, multi-week #1 “Cruise” and the remix featuring Nelly, which has sold a combined total of over 3 million downloads. The GRAMMY-winning Hip Hop artist and FGL will perform the collaboration May 19 at 9P ET during the CBS special – ACM PRESENTS: Tim McGraw’s Superstar Summer Night. The duo also has a Billboard Music Award nomination for Top Country Song (“Cruise”) and will present on the televised show, which airs May 19 on ABC at 8P ET/7P CT live from Las Vegas.

The ACM New Artist of the Year and New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year winners are currently touring with Taylor Swift’s “THE RED TOUR” and Luke Bryan’s “DIRT ROAD DIARIES TOUR” in support of their GOLD-certified Republic Nashville debut album, HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES. Their energetic live show recently yielded a nomination for the CMT Music Awards Nationwide “On Your Side” Award for the best new live act in Country music and fans can vote via http://www.cmt.com/cmt-music-awards/nationwide/voting.jhtml. This nod is in addition to the previously announced trifecta of 2013 CMT Music Awards nominations they earned; Video of the Year; Duo Video of the Year and Breakthrough Video of the Year.
