Florida Georgia Line Headlining Tour on Duo’s 2013 Wish List
Florida Georgia Line have certainly had a memorable year. The country music duo, comprised of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, saw their platinum-selling debut single, "Cruise," from their freshman album, Here's to the Good Times, soar to the top of the charts. The pair, who hit the road over the summer with the Country Throwdown tour, before opening up for Jake Owen on his CMT on Tour: The Summer Never Ends trek, were also invited to join Luke Bryan for his Dirt Road Diaries tour in January. As the guys look ahead to their busy 2013, they say they still have plenty of new goals for the upcoming year.
"We'd both love to have a live tour this year, a fall tour," Tyler tells The Boot. "That would be great. Get some markets we've been building for a long time in the last few years, and try to sell them out. Kind of do what we're doing now with Jake, but hopefully be headlining."
"It's hard to say statistic-wise, but I hope we have another year that's surreal to us," Brian adds. "We want to keep working hard and take it one day at a time, and build this party on the road."
The duo may have high career aspirations for the next 12 months, but they hope to also find time to spend with their loved ones. "It's something that's very important to us too, time with friends and family," Brian explains. "Our friends have been very understanding when we don't have much time to hang out. There will be times when it slows down and we'll have more free time. Right now, we're totally focused on doing music and getting it out there and hitting the road and making fans."
Florida Georgia Line will play a sold-out show tonight (Dec. 31) in Springfield, Ill. They will kick off 2013 with a performance in the Fan Zone at the Orange Bowl in Miami, Fla. Their tour with Luke Bryan begins on Jan. 17 in Evansville, Ind. See a list of their upcoming shows here.
