Florida Georgia Line Album, ‘Here’s to the Good Times’ Hits Chart at No. 3
Florida Georgia Line, the duo comprised of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, scored the best-selling debut of the week as their first full-length album, Here's to the Good Times, bows at No. 3 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart. The 11-track disc sold nearly 63,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan, putting it two spots behind Taylor Swift's Red, which remains at the top of the chart, and Blake Shelton's Cheers, It's Christmas, which climbs a spot to No. 2.
Florida Georgia Line also has country music's best-selling digital tune of the week with "Cruise," which has already acheived platinum certification for sales in excess of one million. The Band Perry's "Better Dig Two" holds at No. 2, while Gary Allan's "Every Storm (Runs out of Rain)" moves from No. 6 to No. 3.
Meanwhile, Florida Georgia Line places six more tracks on the digital sales survey for the week, as their album's title cut comes in at No. 9, followed by "Round Here" (No. 18), "Stay" (No. 35), "Dayum, Baby" (No. 43), "Get Your Shine On" (No. 46), "Hell Raisin' Heat of the Summer" (No. 51) and "Party People" (No. 61).
"Every song is something a little bit different," Brian tells The Boot of the tunes on the album, "'Cruise' gave our listeners a good taste of what we're all about, sound-wise. It's a feel-good song, but I think with every song on the album, people are going to be a little bit surprised and will get a glimpse of what we can do. There's a little bit of hip-hop, a little bit of rock, little bit of this, little bit of that in every song, so they're not going to get sick of the album. There's not a song that they would necessarily skip."
