Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard looked to the skies for inspiration on their upcoming third album. That might explain why the hit-making Florida Georgia Line duo climbed up into a treehouse Kelley had built in his Nashville backyard after the "Cruise" twosome hit it big with their 2012 debut, Here's to the Good Times to track their new tunes.

The custom two-story unit built by Pete Nelson of the Animal Planet show Treehouse Masters features a round bed, chandeliers, a musket mounted on the wall, and, of course, a recording studio.

"Can't wait for you and the world to hear the magic we captured on this new record here in this viby treehouse," they tweeted to fans on Wednesday.

 

 

Last month, the pair told Billboard that they were in the "home stretch" of the sessions, with about 80 percent of the recording completed. They've been working with regular producer Joey Moi and "a long list of great songwriters," as well as penning their own material on the album. "It's an evolution, a little bit more into FGL. I'd say it's another side of who we are," Hubbard said. "It's a little bit more real, a little bit more personal and there's a little bit more of a nostalgic feel to this album, but there's also the party jams as well. I think just like our other albums there'll be something on here for everybody, but hopefully we've evolved as songwriters and better our craft as singers and artists and entertainers as well."

They kicked off their 2016 tour with three shows in Australia earlier this month opening for Jason Aldean and launched their own Dig Your Roots tour on March 17 with a gig at RodeoHouston. The next date on the outing is an April 8 show at Country Thunder West in Florence, Arizona.
