Florida Georgia Line‘s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley spent 2013 exploding onto the country music scene, but the duo aren’t planning to slow down in the new year. 

In an interview with Glamour magazine, the duo look back on the successful year they’ve had — from working with Alabama and Nelly, to joining Luke Bryan on tour.

“I don’t know, I think if we could have another year like this year we’ll be pretty happy,” Hubbard says. “A lot of sold-out shows, and hopefully at the end of the year we’ll have a new album out and keep doing what we’re doing.”

Kelley agrees with his band mate, hoping the next year can hold the same success.

“For me, the most surreal moment was the Nelly remix and the relationship we have with his crew, and being involved with the ‘Alabama & Friends’ album,” he says. “Obviously all the awards have been unreal. The whole year has been crazy, and to think what has changed from last January to now. It’s real cool.”

The duo started work on their sophomore album earlier this year, and they hope the upcoming release will top the first record. This will be a big feat — their single ‘Cruise’ set a 50-year record by sitting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Song chart for 17 weeks.

“You know, it’s just been so cool to see our fans rally behind us and support our music,” Kelley says. “It’s amazing to see such passionate fans that stand outside and wait in line to buy tickets. Nobody told us how cool and passionate our fans would be.”
