From bro country to bro bands, Florida Georgia Line has got it figured out. On the group's Dig Your Roots Tour, Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard have been treating audience to medleys of some of their favorite songs and at a recent show treated the audience to a cover of the Backstreet Boys' 1997 hit "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)."

Speaking to the audience in Rapid City, South Dakota, Kelley begins introducing the track by stating that Backstreet Boys was his first concert. After which, Hubbard added that the first CD he ever bought was Backstreet Boys. Go figure. 

"So you're telling me that you definitely know a couple songs, right?" said Kelly.
