Soaked in vintage filters, superstar duo FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE brought a “Simple” approach to CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden last night (8/14). The pair performed their Top 10-and-rising hit and “charged into a climatic musical interlude that blew away the sepia tones, bringing viewers and fans back to the reality of their complicated lives in full color” (Billboard), all while donning the same period clothing as seen in their music video. The romantic back-to-basics lead single is the first taste of their fourth studio album on BMLG Records.
On Monday (8/13), the Billboard Trailblazer Award recipients teamed up with BEBE REXHA after surprising her onstage at FOX’s Teen Choice 2018 (8/12) for their Choice Country Song (“Meant to Be”) win for an intimate conversation and performance at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, CA. Billboard’s West Coast Editor Melinda Newman hosted as the global entertainers chatted all things songwriting, future collaborations, and the unprecedented success of record-breaking “Meant to Be.” During the sold-out event, each act also played a few of their hits – FGL brought the crowd to their feet as they performed “Simple” plus breakout “Cruise” – and joined together to close out with their history-making #1 that has surpassed 1 billion total global streams.
“It’s getting increasingly difficult to argue that any act in country music is bigger than Florida Georgia Line,” lauded Forbes, and the Country music pioneers are proving just that as they continue to reign the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for the 37th week (ruling the chart for the most weeks at 93 total since it launched in 1958) with “Meant to Be.” FGL is next up for their first nominations at both the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards (8/20) for Best Collaboration (“Meant to Be” – Bebe Rexha & FGL) as well as the Canadian 2018 iHeartRadio Much Music Video Awards (8/26) for double headers: Song of the Summer (“Meant to Be” – Bebe Rexha & FGL) and Best Collaboration (“Meant to Be” – Bebe Rexha & FGL).
Their inaugural outdoor FGL FEST at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on September 8 was created under Live Nation to coincide with the Big Machine 400 at the Brickyard Powered by Florida Georgia Line race at IMS the following day (9/9). The multi-act music event also features: COLE SWINDELL, NELLY, RAELYNN, JILLIAN JACQUELINE, MASON RAMSEY, RILEY GREEN, and STEPHANIE QUAYLE. Tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster.com, LiveNation.com, and IMS.com.
This winter, FGL will bring their anything-goes world to Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino for their five-night FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE LIVE FROM LAS VEGAS residency in December (12/1, 12/5, 12/7, 12/8 and 12/11).
ABOUT FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE: Billboard’s first-ever Trailblazer Award recipients continue to build their ever-expanding empire of innovative artistry and entrepreneurial endeavors throughout their colossal career. With their organically romantic lead single “Simple” surging Country charts, the duo offers a peek at their anticipated fourth studio album. Shattering records on their own accord, FGL’s collaborations have amplified their appeal as the 3X PLATINUM-certified #1 “Meant to Be” with Bebe Rexha leads the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for the 37th week – the longest reign overall. The song also becomes FGL’s 15th #1 overall as artists. Exceeding 4.2 billion streams, 31 million tracks, and more than 4.3 million albums sold worldwide, the BMLG Records’ duo became the first Country act to achieve RIAA’s DIAMOND certification (10 million copies sold) for their breakout “Cruise,” which is the best-selling digital Country single of all time (SoundScan). Since 2012, FGL has earned prestigious honors from the AMAs, ACM Awards, CMA Awards, Billboard Music Awards, and CMT Music Awards, plus left their mark on several chart-crushing songs as writers. The bona fide visionaries have launched their own Old Camp Peach Pecan Whiskey, as well as thriving businesses: FGL HOUSE, meet + greet, Tree Vibez Music, and Tribe Kelley.https://www.countryschatter.com/2018/08/icymi-florida-georgia-line-illuminates-cbs-the-late-late-show-with-james-corden-with-simple-performance-8-14/Press ReleaseTV Appearance"Simple",CBS The Late Late Show with James Corden,Cole Swindell,Florida Georgia Line,Jillian Jacqueline,Mason Ramsey,nelly,RaeLynn,riley Green,Stephanie Quayle,Twitter
