Florida Georgia Line Stop by ‘The View’, Serenade New York City to Outnumber Hunger — Exclusive Pictures
Florida Georgia Line have been very busy these days. However, there’s nothing more important to them than helping out a good cause.
So Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard were in New York City last week (April 30) to perform on ‘The View’ and talk about their involvement with Outnumber Hunger, a campaign to end hunger in the United States by providing meals to more than 25 million Americans since 2011. After their TV appearance, the duo stopped by Hill Country to play some of their big hits and share more on why they are involved with the fight against hunger in America.
“We’re here for a good cause, and we’re really excited about it,” Kelley told the crowd. “We were part of it last year. This year has been on a different level. We feel very blessed to be part of this thing.”
“Tyler and I have dreamed and dreamed, since we started this thing, of giving back … This is something we jumped on and really believe in it and are really, really grateful to be a part of,” Kelley said. “And the coolest thing to us is to see the support from all our fans. And how many people on the road know what Outnumber Hunger is.”
The guys sang two of their hits — ‘Round Here’ and ‘Cruise’ — which Hubbard explained changed everything for them.
“[Outnumber Hunger] is something that’s close to our hearts, and it’s cool to be a part of this. So we really appreciate it,” Hubbard said. “We also appreciate supporting the music that we’re making, and you guys helped us change country music history. It’s really a cool thing to be a part of.”
Aside from the mini concert from Florida Georgia Line, the folks from Outnumber Hunger also plugged ‘Give ‘Em Hope’, which is out now on iTunes. The track features the likes of Danielle Bradbery, Vince Gill, Lauren Jenkins, Toby Keith, Martina McBride, Cassadee Pope, Reba, the Band Perry, the Cadillac Three, Thomas Rhett and Chris Young. Forty-eight percent of the anthem purchase price is being donated by Big Machine Label Group to Feeding America to benefit local food banks across the country.
