The members behind the popular country duo Florida Georgia Line, Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard, first met through a worship group while attending Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee. Their mutual interest in music and songwriting led them to begin working together.

They self-released their debut EP Anything Like Me, in 2010. It garnered attention from a small label and led to their second EP It’z Just What We Do. From there, the duo started picking up steam in Nashville.

Nickelback producer Joey Moi heard their sound and worked with Florida Georgia Line on their debut studio album Here’s to the Good Times, which arrived in 2012. The duo’s anthemic, country-rock sound hit big with listeners. Their lead single ‘Cruise’ remains their most popular song to date, having reached diamond certification by RIAA.

Based on the popularity of their sound, the duo picked up the ACM Award for New Artist of the Year and New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year in 2013.

In 2019, based on the success of their albums and singles, the ACM Awards honored Florida Georgia Line with three major decade-long awards, including Breakout Artist of the Decade, which recognized their significant contribution to country music.

Their fifth studio album, Life Rolls On, came out in 2021.
