Acoustic release inspires virtual jam with touring band
Florida Georgia Line dig into their down-home roots with “I Love My Country (Acoustic At Home),” available now at all streaming platforms and digital retailers via BMLG Records.
This laid-back approach to the original electrified counterpart offers a signature acoustic guitar melody accompanied by a rolling banjo and rhythmic shakers. Adding to its country-to-the-core lyrics, the adjoining video finds FGL jamming with their touring friends and echoes the same sentiment of homegrown fun.
The studio version which fuses a hard-edged Southern Rock stomp with rolling banjo, 808 beats, country-to-the-core lyrics, and FGL’s acclaimed vocal blend, was released last month. It’s a tribute to the anything-goes lifestyle their fans can’t do without: “I love my country and I love my country up loud.”
“I Love My Country” follows FGL’s successful fourth album, Can’t Say I Ain’t Country, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and went on to become a gold-certified smash, spawning the 2X platinum chart-topper “Simple,” platinum “Talk You Out of It,” and tender ballad “Blessings.”
Most recently honored with Pandora’s Billionaire plaque for crossing 5.6 billion+ streams on the platform, the award-winning duo were also just featured on the buzzy country remix of Justin Bieber’s “Yummy,” as they continue to break new ground during a record-shattering career which includes 21 RIAA-certified singles and four certified albums.
