Florida Georgia Line Set 2012 Record With High Debut Album Sales
To say that country newcomers Florida Georgia Line are a breakout group would be an understatement. This the popular duo’s debut album, ‘Here’s to the Good Times,’ clinched the Highest Album Sales of 2012 for a New Country Artist when they moved 63,000 units of the record following its Dec. 4 release.
The band’s debut on Republic Nashville entered the charts at No. 3 on the Country Albums chart and No. 10 on the Billboard Top 200. Not too shabby!
This year, the guys have appeared on several talk shows, toured with Jake Owen and released their introductory country album. Finally, all of the hard work is starting to pay off for Florida Georgia Line.
In addition to setting a record for their album, the group’s lead single, ‘Cruise,’ has spent two weeks at the top of country charts. The single has gone certified platinum since it was released.
Earlier this week, the band appeared on ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’ to perform their popular single. Both clad in black jackets, jeans and black boots, FGL came ready to wow the crowd with their music. Members Tyler Hubbard (Georgia) and Brian Kelley (Florida) were backed by four other band members who collaborated to put together some addictive country rock.
Fallon seemed as excited as the screaming crowd was. After the guys played ‘Cruise,’ he ran onstage with their record and congratulated them on an awesome performance.
If 2013 is anything like this year was for Florida Georgia Line, we’ll be seeing a lot more of this up-and-coming country group!
