NASHVILLE, TN (April 9, 2015) – Florida Georgia Line made quite the impression on Tuesday (4/7) during a candid chat with CBS' The Talk hosts -- Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Aisha Tyler, Sheryl Underwood and special guest Kelly Osbourne – about touring, ACM nominations and Tyler’s wedding plans. FGL closed out their appearance with an explosive performance of their GOLD-certified #1 smash "Sun Daze.”

Last night (4/8), the superstar duo appeared on FOX’s American Idol mentoring the contestants alongside their label head Scott Borchetta and performing their scorching Top 15-and-rising single “Sippin’ On Fire” for the first time on television. "Sippin’ On Fire” is the third single from FGL's chart-topping, GOLD-certified sophomore album ANYTHING GOES (Republic Nashville) and follows the back-to-back #1 hits “Sun Daze” and “Dirt."
