Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley collected special trophies on Friday night (April 1) in Las Vegas for their record-breaking single, “Cruise.” That breakout hit has achieved the first-ever Diamond certification for a country single, marking 10 million units sold. RIAA Exec. VP of Communications and Marketing Jonathan Lamy presented the award.
Held at Skyfall Lounge at the Delano, the stylish event was a gesture of thanks to the Nashville music community’s support. At the same party, Hubbard and Kelley were surprised with news of their win as ACM Vocal Duo of the Year, marking the fourth consecutive year they have won that award.
Kelley said, “We are blown away and couldn’t be more honored by these milestone moments. Our fans keep us doing what we do and made this possible!”
Hubbard added, “The past year has been such an incredible ride. Each time we release a single we can only pray that people are going to respond positively and thankfully they did. We have the best fans in the world, by far!”
The duo will perform “Confession” on the ACM Awards on Sunday night. They’re expecting to release their third full-length album later this year.
