» FGL Pack The Party In “Dirt” This Time
Florida Georgia Line busted onto the scene with a career-making song in, “Cruise,” which has been downloaded over seven million times. So, when it came to releasing new music form their next album, why didn’t they go back to that well?
“I think a ‘Cruise’-type song would have been accepted, but just when you think you have FGL figured out, we wanted to go against the grain and change it up,” Brian Kelley tells the Chicago Sun Times on why they chose “Dirt” as the lead song.
Brian says the song shows just how open the format is to party anthems and sentimental songs. It’s also an indication of how his recent marriage, and his partner Tyler Hubbard’s long-term relationship with his girlfriend, Hayley, have affected their music. “[It] didn’t change the direction of the new album,” Brian says, “but it does change how you feel about certain songs. Of course we have matured. Our lives are better than ever.”
No release date has been announced for their new project, but it’s expected to be a fall date.
