History Making Duo’s New Album Features All-Star Collaborations With Tim McGraw, The Backstreet Boys and Ziggy Marley
Street Date August 26
Nashville, TN (July 8, 2016) – With their hotly-anticipated third studio album – DIG YOUR ROOTS – arriving August 26 on Big Machine Label Group, fans of the ground-breaking country duo FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE are now only weeks away from uncovering a whole new musical evolution.
Pre-ordering for DIG YOUR ROOTS is already underway via http://smarturl.it/DigYourRoots, and today (7/8) the award-winning superstars are announcing their new project’s track listing – 15 genre-defying songs that go beyond party tunes to penetrate deep into Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley’s personal lives and ambitions, with special all-star collaborations from Tim McGraw, The Backstreet Boys and Ziggy Marley.
“Collaborating with Tim McGraw, The Backstreet Boys or Ziggy Marley alone is already super surreal for us, but to have them all on this album is pretty mind-blowing,” shares Brian Kelley.
Tyler Hubbard adds, “these three artists were huge influences on both of us musically; BK’s first concert was The Backstreet Boys and they were my first album!”
Acclaimed producer Joey Moi, who has been at the helm for FGL’s entire discography to date, once again joined the pair for DIG YOUR ROOTS. The duo penned over half of the new music, further depicting an evolution in both of their life journeys. On top of their latest hit, the spiritual masterpiece of love, “H.O.L.Y.,” the album also features the hopeful, big-picture anthem “May We All” (featuring Tim McGraw), the faithfully romantic promise of “God, Your Mama, and Me” (featuring The Backstreet Boys) and the sunny reggae romper “Life Is a Honeymoon” (featuring Ziggy Marley), plus much more.
As an added bonus, those who pre-order DIG YOUR ROOTS will receive an immediate download of the album’s flirty country-funk kickoff track “Smooth.”
