NASHVILLE, TN – (July 15, 2013) – Over the past year, Florida Georgia Line has cherished the good times seeing their QUADRUPLE PLATINUM debut single “Cruise” dominate Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart at No. 1 for 19 straight weeks, the longest stretch for any song in the past 50 years and their aptly titled, GOLD-certified Republic Nashville debut HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES top the Billboard Country Albums Chart. The breakout duo has taken home ACM and CMT awards and scored opening slots for Taylor Swift’s THE RED TOUR and Luke Bryan’s DIRT ROAD DIARIES TOUR. This fall the buzzworthy newcomers will celebrate with their fans nationwide on their first headline run — HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES TOUR 2013.
Kicking off October 3 in Brookings, SD, the HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES TOUR will go through December. The 32-city tour features openers Colt Ford, Tyler Farr (select dates) and Dallas Smith (select dates). Already becoming a hot ticket, the first show to go on sale – 10/19 at Whitaker Bank Ballpark in Lexington, KY – sold out in a record-breaking 23 minutes with 10,718 tickets.
“We can’t wait to give our fans what they have been asking for all year … our own headline tour,” says Tyler Hubbard. “It is unreal and the first night of the tour can’t get here fast enough!”
Brian Kelley shares, “This is another dream of ours coming true. I couldn’t be more excited and more proud of the tour. Having Colt, Dallas and Tyler along with us is going to make for a party!”
Florida Georgia Line has skyrocketed since releasing back-to-back, multi-week #1 smashes in the US and Canada with the PLATINUM-certified “Get Your Shine On” and “Cruise,” which combined with the Top 10-and-climbing (Top 40 Charts) remix featuring Nelly, has sold nearly 5 million downloads. The record–breaking duo, comprised of Tyler Hubbard (Monroe, Georgia) and Brian Kelley (Ormond Beach, Florida), is the first in 21 years to top the Country airplay charts with their first two singles, according to Billboard.
