Florida Georgia Line Want to Top Their First Album With Next Release
Florida Georgia Line rocketed to virtually overnight stardom with their first full-length album, 'Here's to the Good Times.' But despite the overwhelming success of songs like 'Cruise' and 'Get Your Shine On,' the duo hope that their sophomore effort will be even better.
“I don’t think we were ever driven by success or wanting to be a star,” Tyler Hubbard tells Rolling Stone. “You do something you love, you want to be good at it. You want to be successful, you want to be the best, and I think with the success that we’ve had, it makes us want to continue to work that much harder. So when we’re writing on the bus we’re digging deeper, we’re pushing harder. We want to top our first record. We want to top every record that’s out at the current time.”
The duo have already put together 13 or 14 songs that they "can’t not cut," according to Brian Kelley. "Now the hard part is juggling -- figuring out which ones we’re gonna be keeping, which ones we’re gonna let go.”
He adds, ”It’s gonna be diverse, like our first album. Kind of a little something for everybody. We like to mix it up when we write, get creative. If you write the same sound, the same vibe a couple of days in a row, you’re sick of it. I think we have a really diverse sound, especially on the second record.”
