Offering a behind-the-scenes look as the top-shelf BMLG Records entertainers gear up for their third and final SOLD-OUT stadium stop during their headline-making THE SMOOTH STADIUM TOUR 2017 (filmed 8/12), Alan and Cook also surprise the record-makers with a personalized plaque for earning the most number one videos in Hot 20 Countdown history.

Throughout the show, Alan and Cook celebrate the "Greatest #1s of Hot 20" while exploring the legendary home of the Chicago Cubs.

About Florida Georgia Line:

FGL’s PLATINUM-certified musical evolution, DIG YOUR ROOTS, propelled the history-making duo to #1 on the all-genre Billboard Artist 100 and Country Albums charts. Continuing the epic momentum, the album has delivered three consecutive #1 smashes - the 3X PLATINUM-certified lead single “H.O.L.Y.” [#1 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart for 18 straight weeks] and PLATINUM-certified hits “May We All” (featuring Tim McGraw) and “God, Your Mama, And Me” (featuring Backstreet Boys) [13th #1 overall as artists]. Following a landmark DIG YOUR ROOTS TOUR that broke attendance records and played to over one million featuring headline-grabbing guest appearances, FGL is currently on THE SMOOTH TOUR 2017. Bursting with first-rate reviews of their explosive live shows, MusicRow Magazine praised, "Just in case you’ve forgotten, Florida Georgia Line is one of the hottest country acts alive.” The superstar duo continues to crush records as the first and only Country act to achieve RIAA’s DIAMOND certification (10 million copies sold) for their breakout smash “Cruise,” which is the best-selling digital country single of all time (SoundScan). Since their breakout in 2012, FGL has earned prestigious honors from the AMA, ACM Awards, CMA Awards, Billboard Music Awards and CMT Music Awards. Their previous BMLG Records releases – 2X PLATINUM debut HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES and PLATINUM ANYTHING GOES – have attributed to sales surpassing 29 million tracks and more than 3.5 million albums worldwide. FGL will spread good vibes to sports fans each week during the 2017 NFL season as they’re featured alongside Hank Williams Jr. and Jason Derulo in “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Monday Night” during Monday Night Football on ESPN. Fueled by fresh inspiration and keen entrepreneurial spirit, they’ve launched publishing company Tree Vibez Music and their own emoji app, FGLmoji. Following the introduction of their Old Camp Peach Pecan Whiskey, their premiere restaurant and entertainment destination FGL HOUSE, a four-story attraction with the largest “Cruise” rooftop Nashville has to offer, is now open.
