This past Tuesday (12/11), the powerhouse duo dropped the curtain on their limited residency, FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE LIVE FROM LAS VEGAS, at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Leaving their mark on the iconic Strip, FGL served-up five anything-goes shows with a supercharged setlist full of brand new tracks – like “Colorado,” “Simple,” and their chart-rising steamy single “Talk You Out of It” – from their much-anticipated fourth studio album, CAN’T SAY I AIN’T COUNTRY, on BMLG Records (expected 2/15/19). With CANAAN SMITH and MASON RAMSEY getting the party started nightly, special guests including NICK CARTER (Backstreet Boys), NELLY, and HARDY, also made surprise appearances.

Mayor Carolyn Goodman also declared December 11, 2018, “Florida Georgia Line Day,” at Las Vegas’ City Hall. Proclaimed in commemoration of their celebrated residency, she applauded the global entertainers for their colossal career as bona fide trailblazers. Calling FGL “the perfect fit for Las Vegas,” Mayor Goodman further praised, “You do things your own way and you make your own success and that’s what Vegas is all about – entertainment, excitement, and doing it your own way.”

Capping 2018 in style, FGL will count down until midnight from the Allstate® Fan Fest in New Orleans, LA, as they perform live during Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2019 on ABC. The 3rd annual Central Time Zone year-end bash is hosted by Lucy Hale and begins at 8 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. CT on December 31.

Billboard’s first-ever Trailblazer Award recipients continue to build their ever-expanding empire of innovative artistry and entrepreneurial endeavors throughout their colossal career. Turning up the heat with “Talk You Out of It,” the steamy single follows PLATINUM chart-topper “Simple” (16th #1 overall as artists) off their anticipated fourth studio album. FGL’s collaborations have amplified their appeal as the 4X PLATINUM-certified, #1 “Meant to Be” with Bebe Rexha is nominated for Best Country Duo/Group Performance at the 61st GRAMMY Awards (February 10 on CBS). Shattering records of their own accord, “Meant to Be” also led the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for 50 straight weeks – now the longest reign overall. 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 11X-PLATINUM 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.
