Florida Georgia Line cruising to Penticton

Country music’s hottest duo, Florida Georgia Line will cruise into Penticton on April 10, 2014.

FGL’s highly anticipated Here's To The Good Times tour at the South Okanagan Events Centre will capture the essence of the duo’s musically adventurous celebration of youth, fun and romance.

FGL has skyrocketed since releasing consecutive, multi-week No. 1 smashes in the U.S. and Canada with the gold-certified Round Here, platinum-certified Get Your Shine On and six times platinum Cruise. Breaking the record for longest  No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart, Cruise has sold over 6.1 million downloads in the U.S. alone and is the second best-selling country single ever, according to SoundScan. FGL is the only artist in history to join Brooks & Dunn in having their first three singles hit  No. 1 for multiple weeks each.

Comprised of Tyler Hubbard (Monroe, Georgia) and Brian Kelley (Ormond Beach, Florida), FGL is currently on their first headline run. In addition to radio, sales and touring success, the talented twosome has been racking up several awards’ show nominations, including nods in the New Artist of the Year category. Currently nominated for seven fan-voted American Country Awards, FGL will perform on the live show Dec. 10. The hot newcomers have previously taken home AMA, ACM, CMA and CMT Music Awards and garnered multiple Teen Choice nominations.
