Florida Georgia Line Capture 18th Number-1 with “Long Live”

Florida Georgia Line Capture 18th Number-1 with “Long Live”

Congrats to Florida Georgia Line, as their song “Long Live” is in the top spot on the country music airplay chart.

This is the 18th career number-1 hit for Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard.

The guys shared, “Having our fans and Country radio support us all of these years has been nothing short of a blessing, we couldn’t imagine a better song to mark our 18th! Here’s to all of the good times and to many more ‘Long Live’ nights!”

Tyler says that while they actually wrote the song a few year ago, “Long Live” is a perfect song for now, “‘Long Live’ was just a really, really special song that we wrote, I don’t know, now probably a couple years ago. It feels like such a big song and such a necessary song and a timely song, even more timely now than ever.”

Brian shares the story of how the song was created, “I think we were just kind of kickin’ around ideas and somebody threw out ‘Long Live’ or ‘Long Live Nights Like These’ and we were off to the races. I think we just started talking about things that mean a lot to us – the simple things, workin’ hard, playin’ hard, families, good friends, good times, Walmart parking lot parties. Hey, love ’em. Always have. You know, this song has taken on a new meaning for us, I think, even in the midst of these uncertain times. Crank it up and let’s celebrate this amazing life we do get to live. Let’s celebrate all the wins that we get baby.”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
