About Florida Georgia Line:
After stepping into the spotlight in 2012 with the best-selling digital Country single of all time “Cruise,” Florida Georgia Line has been unstoppable ever since. As the first Country act to achieve RIAA’s DIAMOND certification (10 million copies sold) and holding the longest reign on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart (50 straight weeks) with 8X PLATINUM, #1 “Meant to Be” with Bebe Rexha, the global superstars have tallied 9.3+ billion streams, exceeded 33.6 million track downloads, sold more than 4.6 million albums worldwide, and scored 16 #1 singles. Talk about a WOW factor!
Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard (from Florida and Georgia hence their band name) met at Belmont University in Nashville and began writing songs together between classes. The dynamic duo began playing local clubs and quickly built a fan base. After self-releasing an EP of originals called Anything Like Me in December 2010, the duo signed a publishing and management deal with Big Loud Mountain. And the rest is history in the making!
Growing up in Austin Texas, Nelly (born as Cornell Haynes Jr.) interests included baseball, hanging with friends, and of course, rapping. He formed his first musical group, St. Lunatics, with some high school friends, and in 1996, they had their first self-produced single “Gimme What You Got.”
It was later decided that Nelly would be better off as a solo act, and in 2000, his debut album Country Grammar hit the charts. Striking while the iron was still hot, Nelly released Nellyville, his second solo record, in 2002. Fast forward to today, Nelly has collaborated with Florida Georgia Line not once but twice now with “Cruise” (Remix) and “Lil Bit.”
