Hitmaking, ACM Award-winning duo Florida Georgia Line has been a regular on radio and country singles charts for months now, thanks to hit songs “Cruise” (both the original and the remixed version featuring Nelly), “Get Your Shine On” and their latest single, “Round Here.”
Those cuts are all from their debut album Here’s To The Good Times. That collection was only released this past December, but already the two bandmates (Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley) are plotting their next one.
As Kelley recently told Rolling Stone, they have already written “about 13 or 14 songs that we can’t not cut.”
The new songs are “diverse, like our first album,” Kelley continued. “Kind of a little something for everybody. We like to mix it up when we write, get creative. If you write the same sound, the same vibe a couple of days in a row, you’re sick of it. I think we have a really diverse sound, especially on the second record.”
But there’s still a long way to to before fans might hear any of the new material. “Now the hard part is juggling,” Kelley continued, “figuring out which ones we’re gonna be keeping, which ones we’re gonna let go.”
In the meantime, Hubbard and Kelley are getting ready for their first-ever headlining tour, which is set to kick off this October.
And, of course, they’re still riding high on the charts with songs from their current album.
