During last week’s Country Radio Seminar in Nashville, duo Florida Georgia Line was surprised with honors for two milestones on Pandora. The duo earned a Billionaire plaque for surpassing five billion lifetime spins and was named among the Top 10 most-spun country acts in Pandora’s 20-year history.

Tyler Hubbard exclaimed, “Now that is a lot of zeroes!” as his fellow FGL bandmate Brian Kelley laughed and added, “Wow. We are constantly blown away by the support from our fans and are grateful to Pandora for sharing our music around the world. This honor inspires us even more and we can’t wait for you to hear what’s coming next!”

With more than 12 million streams per week on Pandora, Florida Georgia Line’s latest single “Blessings,” featured on the duo’s Gold-certified BMLG Records project Can’t Say I Ain’t Country, has remained on its Top Spins chart for seven consecutive weeks.

FGL was first played, even before they were signed to a label deal, in 2012 on SiriusXM’s The Highway channel as a “Highway Find.”

“It’s exciting to acknowledge these great Pandora achievements for the duo,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. “We were confirmed believers years ago when we played them as an unsigned act, and now we look forward to more great music to come for Pandora listeners and SiriusXM subscribers.”

The duo just released a country remix of the Justin Bieber track “Yummy,” and are in the studio working on new music. They will join Kenny Chesney’s Chillaxification 2020 Tour this summer.
