Florida Georgia Line’s Sales Success Is ‘Surreal’
It's been less than a year since Florida Georgia Line's debut single, "Cruise," started playing on your radio. The tune, which eventfully became a multi-week No. 1 for the duo, has now been certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for sales exceeding two million units. Additionally, the pair's debut album, Here's to the Good Times, has reached gold status and so has their current single, "Get Your Shine On," for more than half a million in sales.
"It's a surreal feeling to be a part of something so special and literally see our dreams coming true," the group's Brian Kelley tells The Boot upon receiving the plaques pictured above from their record label today (March 26). "These plaques are a testament to our team and the hard work everyone around us puts into our career."
"Seeing, hearing, and being a part of FGL and everything that has happened in the last year has been a dream come true," adds bandmate Tyler Hubbard. "I feel truly blessed to have the best team in the world and fans that support BK and me. There is nothing we would rather do than make music and play our songs. Fingers crossed we will be able to continue this crazy ride for a long time."
The next thrill-seeker moment for the college buddies comes in Vegas next month. FGL is nominated at the ACM Awards for the fan-voted New Artist of the Year title against another duo, sort of. Newly engaged couple, Brantley Gilbert and Jana Kramer, are both separately up for the honor. Vote here.
