Florida Georgia Line Honored With “Angels Among Us Award” by St. Jude Children’s Hospital

Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line were honored with the Angels Among Us Award by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital on Oct. 15.

The duo follows in the esteemed footsteps of past recipients Randy Owen, Jake Owen, Brad Paisley, John Rich, Darius Rucker, Lady Antebellum and more.

Over the years, FGL has supported St. Jude families by taking part in the This Shirt Saves Lives social media campaign and engaging in special moments with St. Jude patients.

“There is truly no place like St. Jude,” says Tyler. “Whenever we visit, we are continually inspired by the kids’ strength and their amazing stories of bravery. Giving back is in our hearts and to be presented this award is an absolute honor.”

“Music is healing and we love being able to help in any way we can to further the mission of St. Jude,” says Brian. “And, for this award to be named after Randy Owen – who has always been one of our influences – that’s pretty incredible.”

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

If you’ve been to lower Broadway in Nashville over the last several years, you know country music artist owned honkytonks having been sprouting up all along Music City’s famous strip.

Jason Aldean, John Rich, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Alan Jackson all already have venues…but now there’s another name being thrown in the mix, and it’s a first!

Miranda Lambert will be the first female country artist to have a downtown venue. Miranda’s place will be located at 308 Broadway, and looks to be named “Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa.”

Miranda was perhaps encouraged to move into this new venture by a 2018 Nashville Business Journal poll. When music industry pros were asked, “Which female country star should open a downtown bar?” — Miranda garnered the most votes.

Miranda is partnering with TC Restaurant Group on the new place, and it looks like even more details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
