Interview: Florida Georgia Line + Budweiser Create Unique Partnership

Thanks to a special invite from Budweiser, Variety Beat was able to go on a private tour of the historic Ryman Auditorium and talk with Florida Georgia Line! Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley spoke about the Dig Your Roots tour, their single “H.O.L.Y.” and their summer plans!

FGL Talks The Dig Your Roots Tour Sponsored By Budweiser

“It’s an evolution of what we’ve been doing, it’s still high energy and we have a lot more elements and moments of production. To have Cole Swindell, The Cadillac Three  and Kane Brown is just a really good overall experience. Everybody brings something different to the table, maybe I’m biased but I think it’s maybe the best show on the road this year.” – Tyler Hubbard

Fans can also expect some intimate moments during the show when FGL takes to the B-Stage with some of the opening acts to perform more of an acoustic set writer’s round to take it back to their roots!

FGL Talks The Dig Your Roots Album 

The boys have also had plenty of time to write while out on the road and have an album coming out this August! They said fans can expect more ballads on the Dig Your Roots album but they also have songs for everyone. There are party songs, live song, spiritual songs and some “feel good kind of reggae vibes.”

The boys went on to say it’s very important to have a song to listen to no matter what kind of mood you are in, whether you want to cry, laugh, go to church or call your parents and tell them you love ’em.

Lately FGL’s music has seemed more personal and they shared that when they first came out they shared one side of who they are and now they are letting the fans into their lives, into their hearts, their emotions and where they came from.

They described the Dig Your Roots album as more mature as they have both done some “growing up” and life has changed a lot in the couple of few years, so their music has followed suit and evolved.

FGL Talks About Their Current Single “H.O.L.Y.”

When we told FGL their single “H.O.L.Y.” (High On Loving You) was a beautiful love song and one you could picture yourself singing in church, they said that’s why they fell in love with it. They both got their start learning to sing and play guitar in church. The song is special to them and they feel that strong connection will relay to the fans and they will be able to feel that connection as well.

FGL Talks Their Summer Plans And Drinking Budweiser!

In case you are wondering what FGL is doing this summer, besides touring, we made sure to ask! They said there is nothing more American than Country Music and Budweiser! They plan on doing some fly-fishing, going out in their RVs and drinking some Buds.

When they’re not enjoying Budweiser, they enjoy doing anything and everything outdoors, whether it’s riding dirt bikes, hiking, riding horses or doing some fishing.

Florida Georgia Line will also be having a special album release party with Budweiser later this summer! They said it is going to be the ultimate party and they are going to be filming behind the scenes footage to share!
