In day two of our preview of Friday night's New Faces Show at the Country Radio Seminar, we shine the spotlight on Florida Georgia Line -- the Republic Nashville duo comprised of Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard. It has been quite the year for the duo, with the release of their full-length debut "Here's To The Good Times," and the chart-topping success of their single "Cruise."
When asked about being voted on by the powers-that-be at country radio to be one of the New Faces acts, Hubbard said "Man, it's awesome. It feels great. Everything has happened so fast for us that it's been crazy. It's a big step, and it's an honor to be a part of it." Kelley agrees with that sentiment, saying "2012 was such a blessing for us, and we're just so excited, and all the success we're having just makes us want to work harder."
Radio has been a huge part of their story. "Cruise" debuted on the charts in August and topped the charts by the end of the year. It spent five weeks atop the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, and also hit No. 16 on the Billboard Hot 100. Followup single "Get Your Shine On" reaches No. 20 this week after 18 weeks on the survey.
