Pandora awards Florida Georgia Line Billionaire honor

Among Top 10 most-spun country acts in the music platform’s history

Florida Georgia Line (FGL) was surprised backstage with two landmark achievements during Big Machine Label Group’s luncheon at Country Radio Seminar 2020 in Nashville on Friday (Feb 21st). Pandora honored the superstar duo with the elite Billionaire plaque for surpassing five billion lifetime spins and named them among the Top 10 most-spun country acts in the music platform’s 20-year history.

FGL was all smiles during the plaque presentation. Tyler Hubbard exclaimed, “Now that is a lot of zeroes!” as Brian Kelley laughed and added, “Wow. We are constantly blown away by the support from our fans and are grateful to Pandora for sharing our music around the world. This honor inspires us even more and we can’t wait for you to hear what’s coming next!”

Garnering over 12 million streams per week on Pandora, FGL’s latest single “Blessings,” off gold-certified Can’t Say I Ain’t Country (BMLG Records), has also remained on its Top Spins chart for seven consecutive weeks.

FGL was first played, even before they were signed to a label deal, in 2012 on SiriusXM’s The Highway channel as a “Highway Find.”

“It’s exciting to acknowledge these great Pandora achievements for the duo,” states Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. “We were confirmed believers years ago when we played them as an unsigned act, and now we look forward to more great music to come for Pandora listeners and SiriusXM subscribers.”

Known to serve genre-smashing collaborations, the global entertainers released “Yummy (Country Remix)” with Justin Bieber just last week. More fresh music will continue to hit this year. FGL is also returning to the road for a stadium takeover beginning this April, as part of Kenny Chesney’s Chillaxification 2020 Tour.
