Florida Georgia Line has skyrocketed since releasing back-to-back, multi-week #1 smashes in the US and Canada with the PLATINUM-certified “Get Your Shine On” and TRIPLE PLATINUM “Cruise,” which combined with the Top 10-and-climbing (Top 40 Charts) remix featuring Nelly, has sold over 4 million downloads.
The record–breaking duo, comprised of Tyler Hubbard (Monroe, Georgia) and Brian Kelley (Ormond Beach, Florida), is the first in 21 years to top the Country airplay charts with their first two singles, according to Billboard. As of 1/16/14, the pair achieves its longest No. 1 reign on the Nielsen BDS-based Country Airplay chart with “Stay,” which leads for a fourth straight week and surpasses “Cruise,” the duo’s breakthrough single, which spent three weeks at the summit in December 2012. Second and third radio singles “Get Your Shine On” and “Round Here” both spent two weeks at No. 1 last year. The hot newcomers scored two CMT Music Awards for Duo Video of the Year and Breakthrough Video of the Year as well as a Teen Choice Awards nomination for Choice Country Group.
