Stripped-down track list highlights 17 blockbuster hits
Counting their “Blessings” at Country radio with a new single off gold-certified Can’t Say I Ain’t Country (BMLG Records), Florida Georgia Line highlights the good times with a 17-track acoustic project available October 18th. The Acoustic Sessions spans their meteoric rise from 2012 as Belmont University alums playing open mic nights to their current superstardom, including their 11X platinum breakout “Cruise,” which remains the best-selling digital country single of all time (SoundScan).
“We’re taking it back, y’all,” shares FGL’s Brian Kelley. “Tyler and I started out writing songs on the back of his tailgate and playing anywhere that would let us. This album is a huge thank you for all of the good times that have brought us to where we are now.”
“Playing these tunes acoustic with BK gives it a whole new flavor,” adds FGL’s Tyler Hubbard. “We’re celebrating our fans with this project and hope y’all love it as much as we do.”
The Acoustic Sessions is available now for pre-order with eight re-imagined versions ready for immediate download. Physical CDs are available exclusively with Walmart on October 18th.
Racing to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Saturday (Sept 7th) for FGL Fest, the multi-year headliners will host a revved-up lineup featuring Blaco Brown, Nelly, Dan + Shay, Canaan Smith, Payton Smith and Mitchell Tenpenny. This amped event supports the Big Machine 400 at the Brickyard Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race, which courses through the legendary 2.5-mile oval. The racing weekend and namesake concert move to Fourth of July weekend in 2020.
The global entertainers will return to the road next week, bringing summer’s hottest ticket – 2019 Can’t Say I Ain’t Country Tour – to Salt Lake City, UT (Setp 12th), Denver, CO (Sept 13th), and Albuquerque, NM (Sept 14th). With just a string of shows left, the down-home trek tops off at FivePoint Amphitheatre in Irvine, CA on September 28th. Dan + Shay, Dylan Schneider, Canaan Smith and Morgan Wallen join for the remaining dates.
