MusicRow Magazine’s 2021 Country Radio & Streaming Issue, with BMLG Records duo Florida Georgia Line gracing the cover, releases today (Feb. 16).
For their fifth album, Florida Georgia Line doubles down on what they do best: deep grooves, earworm hooks, and carpe diem-style songs for anyone who loves life, loves God, and loves having a good time. Whether a forever ballad like “Always Gonna Love You,” the phased vocals and hip-hop stroll of “Ain’t Worried Bout It,” the banjo-flecked small-town philosophy of “Life Rolls On,” or the lush soul sexiness of “Hard To Get To Heaven,” Brian “BK” Kelley and Tyler Hubbard continue creating the soundtrack for people who are enjoying every minute.
The first country act to receive two Diamond certifications for “Cruise” [11x Platinum breakout track that spent 24 weeks at No. 1], and record-breaking, 10x Platinum collaboration with Bebe Rexha “Meant to Be” [50 straight weeks at No. 1], FGL knows how to drill into the moment.
Working with acclaimed songwriter/producer Corey Crowder for the first time, LIFE ROLLS ON shows America’s favorite party duo finding a new elevation beyond the CMA, ACM, Billboard Music, Teen Choice, and American Music Awards accolades. Recorded mainly in the Bahamas, these fresh, light songs have everything fans love with a little bit more room to breathe. With the vivid acoustic instruments shining through on “Long Live,” and buzzing-off trademark FGL vibes with “Beer:30,” it’s still drive time power rotation for the people gearing up for their workday or party. But that’s just the beginning… Over 16 tracks, BK and Tyler renew all the things that made them America’s good time brokers and pals down the block.
FGL is signed with their own Tree Vibez Music for publishing, aligned with performing rights organization BMI, managed by Irving and Jeffrey Azoff at Full Stop Management, and booked by WME.
