Overview

Florida Georgia Line (Georgia's Tyler Hubbard and Florida's Brian Kelley) broke onto the contemporary country scene in the spring of 2012 with the infectious summer single "Cruise," a song that blended cruising country back roads and farm towns with ragged drums and layers of rock guitar, and sounded a bit like an amped-up, next-generation Brooks & Dunn. The duo seems poised for stardom going into the second decade of the 21st century, a time when country seems to be as much AC/DC as it is George Strait or George Jones (although both Georges get name-checked a lot these days in country songs one can hardly imagine either of them singing). Florida Georgia Line released a five-song EP, It'z Just What We Do, produced by Joey Moi, behind "Cruise," and Here's to the Good Times, the group's first official full-length album, contains all five of those songs, plus six more, which were also produced by Moi. It's an aptly named album, because good times are at the heart of everything here, with songs like "Cruise," "Tip It Back," and "Party People" pretty much summing up Florida Georgia Line's philosophy. This is an album based on summer energy, drinking beer, taking shots, driving back roads, and the romantic glories and possibilities of Friday and Saturday nights with nothing to do but look for those good times. Fair enough. This kind of pop
ocked-up version of country is obviously here to stay, and is probably the commercial future of the whole franchise. Florida Georgia Line are pretty good at it, even if someone like Keith Urban actually does it better. ["Cruise" proved to be one of those breakthrough songs, hitting the top spot on the country charts in December of 2012, while a remix of the song featuring Nelly went Top Four on the Billboard Hot 100 early in 2013, and two more singles drawn from the album, "Get Your Shine On" and "Round Here," reached number one on the Country Airplay chart in January and September of 2013, respectively, all of which made Here's to the Good Times a huge commercial success. A deluxe edition of the album was issued at the end of 2013 that included the Nelly remix of "Cruise," a collaboration with Luke Bryan on "This Is How We Roll," and three other additional songs, as well as a DVD disc featuring official videos and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the album.]
