CANíT SAY THEY AINíT #1: FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE DEBUTS NEW ALBUM ON TOP OF THE BILLBOARD COUNTRY ALBUMS CHART

Superstar duo FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE have backed up the title of their fourth studio album in unforgettable style, debuting CAN’T SAY I AIN’T COUNTRY(BMLG Records) at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.

Continuing Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley’s relentless push forward while also reconnecting with their Country roots, the highly-anticipated project racked up 300,000 album equivalents consumed globally to date, once again reaching fans and critics alike.
 
Early reviews can’t get enough of CAN’T SAY I AIN’T COUNTRY:
 
…they’re more than just the guys from the bro country radio hits. Album No. 4’s usually the one where things get weird. This one took Florida Georgia Line back home.” – Vulture
 
There should be a whiplash warning on Florida Georgia Line's new Can't Say I Ain't Country album. Between the guest artists, sonic variances, skits, emotions and impulses the new project keeps your head on a swivel.
 
…they’re steadfast in using music as a way to resist those who try to deny their place in country music.

Wrapping a week-long, coast-to-coast CAN’T SAY I AIN’T COUNTRY celebration which found them appearing on both daytime and late-night television, the duo stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Showyesterday (2/21) for a double shot of fun. First they performed their steamy single, “Talk You Out of It,” and then stuck around to chat with host Ellen DeGeneres – who later surprised Hubbard and his wife Hayley with the sweet gender reveal of their second child due in August.

Billboard’s first-ever Trailblazer Award recipients have cultivated an ever-expanding empire of innovative artistry and entrepreneurial endeavors. Turning up the heat, FGL’s fourth studio album CAN’T SAY I AIN’T COUNTRY (BMLG Records) has arrived. The project features their chart-rising single “Talk You Out of It” and PLATINUM chart-topper “Simple” (16th #1 overall as artists). Shadowing the applauded headline treks and FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE LIVE FROM LAS VEGAS residency, the pair will launch their 2019 CAN’T SAY I AIN’T COUNTRY TOUR this summer with support from Dan + Shay and Morgan Wallen, plus special guests HARDY and Canaan Smith on select dates. Exceeding 7.8 billion streams, 32.1 million tracks, and more than 4.4 million albums sold worldwide, the history-making 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. FGL’s collaborations have also amplified their appeal, as most recently, their GRAMMY-nominated, 4X PLATINUM, #1 “Meant to Be” with Bebe Rexha led the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for 50 straight weeks – the longest reign overall. 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.
