In addition to their upcoming album, new tour and single, Florida Georgia Line are set to launch a line of whiskey later this summer. The country duo sat down with Orlando radio station K92.3 morning show hosts AJ & Ashley to discuss their forthcoming brand of whiskey at Country 500.
“It’s not officially out yet, but we developed a whiskey that we really love, BK and I,” Tyler Hubbard explains. “We’re really, really excited. It’s going to be launching in August.”
While the guys said they didn’t brew the alcohol in Brian Kelley’s tree house, they did reveal that it will be called Old Camp Whiskey.
The duo also touched upon their decision to cover the Backstreet Boys live in concert each night while on tour, which initially started as a conversation. As Kelley recalls, he told Hubbard that his first concert was the Backstreet Boys’ show when he was in the sixth grade.
“It was amazing,” Kelley admits. “Then he goes, ‘BK, that’s pretty damn funny because my first CD was Backstreet Boys.’ We make a mixtape for everybody every show that we have, going through our influences and songs that we love. We do ‘Everybody.’ They [Backstreet Boys] were a huge part of everybody’s life at that time.”
Kelley and Hubbard show no favorites between boy bands NSYNC and Backstreet Boys, and instead invite all members to visit their tree house and write songs together.
“Always welcome at the tree house. They can come on over. NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, whoever wants to come over and hang. It’s all good,” Kelley says.
