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.”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
