While in Baltimore, MD for their sold-out show at the Rams Head, Republic Nashville’s Florida Georgia Line went dirt biking with friend and motorsports champion Travis Pastrana. “Meeting Travis at the Super Bowl this year was incredible. For him to invite us to hang out at his compound and ride around with the Nitro Circus crew, was a dream come true,” shares FGL member Tyler Hubbard (Monroe, Ga.) who grew up riding dirt bikes on back roads and a huge motorsports fan. FGL member Brian Kelley (Ormond Beach, Fla.) adds, “Anytime we can get outdoors, spend time with friends and go four-wheeling, I’m in!”
