Nashville, TN (May 1, 2014) – Florida Georgia Line appeared on ABC’s The View yesterday (4/30) to bring awareness the national Outnumber Hunger campaign, which helps fight hunger in local communities across the country. Every 1 in 6 Americans struggles with hunger and this partnership between the Big Machine Label Group, General Mills and Feeding America has helped secure more than 25 million meals to date. General Mills gifted the audience with specially marked products to encourage participation in the program. The ACM Vocal Duo of the Year also performed their Gold-certified, Top 5 smash “This Is How We Roll” (featuring Luke Bryan), which has sold over 1 million digital downloads. Watch here. The live daytime show wrapped with an announcement that the superstar duo will perform on Billboard Music Awards, airing May 18 at 8:00P Eastern on ABC. FGL is nominated for four awards that evening – Top Country Artist, Top Country Song (“Cruise” Remix featuring Nelly), Top Country Album (HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES), Top Duo/Group.
FGL has skyrocketed since releasing four consecutive, multi-week #1 smashes from their chart-topping, PLATINUM-certified debut album HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES (Republic Nashville); the PLATINUM-certified hits “Stay,” “Get Your Shine On,” "Round Here" and 6X PLATINUM “Cruise,” making them the only artist in history to join Brooks & Dunn in achieving this accolade. Breaking the record for longest #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart, “Cruise” has sold over 6.9 million downloads and is the best-selling digital Country single of all time (SoundScan). Comprised of Tyler Hubbard (Monroe, Georgia) and Brian Kelley (Ormond Beach, Florida), FGL is currently on the road with Jason Aldean and will embark on their headline run – THIS IS HOW WE ROLL SUMMER SERIES 2014 – featuring special guests Nelly and Chris Lane later this month. This fall, they will host "This is How We Cruise” aboard the Norwegian Pearl. For tour dates and more, check out FloridaGeorgiaLine.com.
