The dust hasn't even settled on Florida Georgia Line's debut album, Here's To The Good Times, and the duo are already gearing up for their second full-length. Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley took to Facebook on Monday (June 23) to tease fans with the release, heightening up the buzz for their next musical chapter.
"Y'all ready for the first single from #record2?!" the hit-makers pondered to their three million fans, attaching a photo emblazoned with the title ("Dirt") and a release date (July 8). The track, written by Rodney Clawson (Lady Antebellum's "Bartender," George Strait's "I Saw God Today") and Chris Tompkins (Carrie Underwood's "Blown Away," "Before He Cheats"), will serve is the lead-in to their sophomore Big Machine record. "It's one of those songs we just had to cut," Kelley recently told "America's Morning Show" of the tune. "It takes us back."
He added, "We feel like it's gonna be a huge song. It's got a great message. It's something we've never really covered before. It's something that really hits some."
Previously, Florida Georgia Line set the bar high for their career, bolstered by their record-breaking "Cruise" (along with a remix with rapper Nelly) and follow-up hits "Get Your Shine On," "Stay" and "Round Here." Following the late 2012 release of their debut album, the pair re-released the disc with several new cuts, including the Luke Bryan collaboration "This Is How We Roll," which is seeing a resurgence in sales and radio airplay thanks to a Jason Derulo pop remix.
This summer, the duo continue lending a hand on Jason Aldean's Burn It Down Tour as special guests, along with newcomer Tyler Farr. While they've been an opening act on that venture, Florida Georgia Line have also been performing their own headlining dates on the "This Is How We Roll Summer Series Tour," hitting up many of the country's biggest baseball stadiums and events.
