Florida Georgia Line Takes “H.O.L.Y.” to the Top of the Charts
History-making duo Florida Georgia Line is once again on top as “H.O.L.Y.” takes the #1 spot on both Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase charts this week. The lead single from DIG YOUR ROOTS – arriving August 26 on Big Machine Label Group – has also dominated the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for 11 weeks. “H.O.L.Y.” marks FGL’s eleventh #1 collectively as artists and songwriters.
“From the college guys we were when ‘Cruise’ came out to starting our families, it’s been really cool to see our fans and radio embrace the music BK and I make,” said Tyler Hubbard. “‘H.O.L.Y.’ is personally so special to us … thank you to everyone who took it to the top!”
FGL continues to unveil new phases musically across the 15 genre-defying tracks on their third studio album, giving listeners a richer look into their lives and influences.
“Tyler and I have been beyond blessed to have so much support throughout our career and are continually grateful when these moments happen,” adds Brian Kelley. “Here’s to digging a little deeper and soaring even higher with our fans every night out on the road!”
Notching over 1.5 million tickets sold in 2015 alone, FGL continues the successful streak with heavily sold-out crowds during their headline DIG YOUR ROOTS TOUR, further “cementing FGL as a bona fide headliner after just two albums” (Oakland Press). Throughout the end of 2016, The Cadillac Three, Cole Swindell and Kane Brown will join the high-octane pair.
Since breaking out in 2012 with the mega smash “Cruise,” FGL have solidified their place as one of the elite acts in Country music, earning prestigious honors from the AMA, ACM Awards, CMA Awards, Billboard Music Awards and CMT. Their previous releases – 2X PLATINUM debut HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES and PLATINUM ANYTHING GOES – have attributed to sales nearing 26 million tracks, over 3.5 million albums worldwide and RIAA DIAMOND-certification for “Cruise,” solidifying the hit as the only Country single to ever reach sales of over 10 million copies. Their massive debut also overtook the record for longest #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.
