Breakout duo Florida Georgia Line rocked AEG Live's Best Buy Theater in New York last night when they performed a special anniversary benefit concert celebrating Billboard's 10th Annual Touring Conference & Awards. The Sold Out show featured the duo's hits "Round Here," "Get Your Shine On," "Cruise," and more. The performance was presented by Citi and benefitted Musicians on Call - a nonprofit organization that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities across the country.
Earlier in the evening, Citi gave cardmembers the exclusive opportunity to get up close and personal with the award-winning duo during an intimate Q&A preshow experience at Hill Country Barbecue Market. For this special Q&A, Florida Georgia Line fans were able to use Twitter to ask questions about their chart-topping debut album HERE'S TO THE GOOD TIMES, first ever headline tour and experiences on the road. Billboard's Ray Waddell moderated the event.
Florida Georgia Line has skyrocketed since releasing consecutive, multi-week #1 smashes in the US and Canada with the GOLD-certified "Round Here," PLATINUM-certified "Get Your Shine On" and 6X PLATINUM "Cruise." Breaking the record for longest #1 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs Chart, "Cruise" has sold over 6.1 million downloads in the US alone and is the second best-selling Country single ever, according to SoundScan. FGL is the only artist in history to join Brooks & Dunn in having their first three singles hit #1 for multiple weeks each. Poised to follow in the success, FGL's new emotionally fueled Top 15-and-rising single, "Stay," showcases another side of their unique sound and tight harmonies.
Canada Country Aircheck also reports FGL are helping Canadian Dallas Smith establish his career in the USA by having him open shows for them on their tour and getting their record label to look at and sign Dallas to the label.
