Florida Georgia Line Announces Dates for First Headlining Tour

FGL_Hi-Res_Photo_8.29.12-1024x682It’s been a long time since an act has shot to superstardom as quickly as Florida Georgia Line. The country duo, comprised of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, signed their first major label record deal just one year ago … and what a year it’s been! They have already scored quadruple platinum sales of their debut single, “Cruise,” which stayed at #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart for a whopping 19 straight weeks, and their debut album is closing in on platinum sales. That’s on top of ACM and CMT award wins and yet another chart-topper with “Get Your Shine On.”

After opening two of the hottest tours of the year, Taylor Swift’s Red Tour and Luke Bryan’s Dirt Road Diaries trek, the guys’ next road trip will feature their own name at the top of the bill. This fall, Florida Georgia Line will embark on their first headlining run, the Here’s to the Good Times Tour 2013. “This is another dream of ours coming true,” says Kelley. “I couldn’t be more excited and more proud of the tour.”

Kicking off Oct. 3 in Brookings, SD, the trek will hit 32 cities before wrapping up Dec. 14 in Kent, WA. (See below for a full list of cities and dates on the tour.) Colt Ford will open, along with Tyler Farr on select dates and Dallas Smith on alternate dates. The first show to go on sale – the Oct. 19 stop in Lexington, KY – sold out in just 23 minutes.

While we wait for this fall’s high-energy shows, savor the rest of summer with Florida Georgia Line on our Country Summer station. Along with “Cruise,” you’ll find several other songs on the station that are perfect for an August road trip, including Brad Paisley’s “Beat This Summer,” Easton Corbin’s “All Over the Road,” Jake Owen’s “Summer Jam” and more.
