The duo – comprised of Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard – skyrocketed to success in 2013, as their chart-topping, Platinum-certified Republic Nashville debut album Here’s to the Good Times spawned more than 1.8 million copies sold to date and four consecutive #1 hits. Their smash single “Cruise” was named the best-selling digital single in country history with over 6.9 million digital downloads according to Soundscan.

Behind the headlines and hashtags, Inside Fame takes fans deep inside the extraordinary lives of two ordinary guys who love making great music, with exclusive new interviews and never-before-seen footage documenting their fast rise to super stardom.

In the new installment of Inside Fame, Florida Georgia Line, who recently scored five CMT Music Awards nominations, speak candidly about the ups and downs on the road to fame and how their passion for music overcame all, driving them to perfect their songwriting and performance skills. The one-hour special includes never-before-seen childhood videos and the moments that defined them, including Kelley’s first performance in Nashville as a child and the tragic helicopter crash resulting in the death of Hubbard’s father.
