FGL's Tyler Hubbard adds, "Getting us all under one roof in Nashville will be fire. We can't wait to jump in on each other's songs and add our flavor to ones we grew up listening to!"

No strangers to performing with each other - FGL teamed up with BSB on their platinum-certified, #1 hit single "God, Your Mama, And Me," and the iconic pop group is currently alongside the unstoppable duo for select stadium dates on their The Smooth Tour 2017 - the one-hour show promises to be nothing short of high-energy as they perform hits "I Want It That Way," "As Long As You Love Me," "Cruise," "H.O.L.Y." and more.

With countless #1s, record-setting tours, numerous awards and worldwide sales in excess of 130 million, BSB has been recognized as the best-selling boy band in history. In 2013, BSB celebrated their 20th Anniversary with the release of the album "In A World Like This," which saw the group receive a star on the legendary Hollywood Walk of Fame, perform for the President of the United States, and make an unforgettable appearance in the Seth Rogen hit film "This Is The End" which earned the group a "Best Musical Moment" award at the MTV Movie Awards. Due to the overwhelming demand, the "In A World Like This" world tour was extended multiple times, amounting to what became the group's biggest tour in over 10 years. On March 1, 2017 Backstreet Boys kicked off their Las Vegas residency "Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life" in The AXIS at Planet Hollywood, which has become one of the fastest-selling shows in Las Vegas history and is hosting the biggest audience in the history of Las Vegas headlining residencies. In June 2017, Backstreet Boys' earned their first #1 Country Radio single with their collaboration with Florida Georgia Line "God, Your Mama, And Me." BSB are currently working on their 10th studio album.

FGL's musical evolution DIG YOUR ROOTS propelled the history-making duo to #1 on the all-genre Billboard Artist 100 and Country Albums charts. Continuing the epic momentum, the album has delivered three consecutive #1 smashes - the 3X PLATINUM-certified lead single "H.O.L.Y." [#1 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart for 18 straight weeks] and PLATINUM-certified hits "May We All" (featuring Tim McGraw) and "God, Your Mama, And Me" (featuring Backstreet) Boys [13th #1 overall as artists]. Following a landmark DIG YOUR ROOTS TOUR that broke attendance records and played to over one million featuring headline-grabbing guest appearances, FGL is currently on THE SMOOTH TOUR 2017. Bursting with first-rate reviews of their explosive live shows, MusicRow Magazine praised, "Just in case you've forgotten, Florida Georgia Line is one of the hottest country acts alive." The superstar duo continues to crush records as the first and only Country act to achieve RIAA's DIAMOND certification (10 million copies sold) for their breakout smash "Cruise," which holds the record for the longest #1 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart and is the best-selling digital country single of all time (SoundScan). Since their breakout in 2012, FGL has earned prestigious honors from the AMA, ACM Awards, CMA Awards, Billboard Music Awards and CMT Music Awards. Their previous BMLG Records releases - 2X PLATINUM debut HERE'S TO THE GOOD TIMES and PLATINUM ANYTHING GOES - have attributed to sales surpassing 29 million tracks and more than 3.5 million albums worldwide. FGL will spread good vibes to sports fans each week during the 2017 NFL season as they're featured alongside Hank Williams Jr. and Jason Derulo in "All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Monday Night" during Monday Night Football on ESPN. Fueled by fresh inspiration and keen entrepreneurial spirit, they've launched publishing company Tree Vibez Music and their own emoji app, FGLmoji. Following the introduction of their Old Camp Pecan Whiskey, their premiere restaurant and entertainment destination FGL HOUSE, a four-story attraction with the largest "Cruise" rooftop Nashville has to offer, is now open.
