UPDATE: This concert has been rescheduled to Thursday, Feb. 25, due to inclement weather in Nashville.
Florida Georgia Line will perform songs from their upcoming album Life Rolls On during their upcoming global livestream concert in an effort to raise money for Nashville businesses affected by the Christmas Day bombing.
On Wednesday (Feb. 10), the country duo announced that they partnered with Amazon Music to bring their new album, which comes out Friday, to life for “Life Rolls On From The FGL House” on Feb. 17. CMT’s Cody Alan will host a Q&A session before the event, which will livestream from FGL’s eponymous restaurant and bar in downtown Nashville.
Amazon Music, Florida Georgia Line, CMT and Big Machine Label Group have each donated to The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee’s Nashville Neighbors Fund, which supports local businesses affected by the Christmas Day bombing in downtown Nashville. Grants will be made available to nonprofits providing immediate and long-term services for those impacted by the explosion, and virtual concertgoers can contribute their own donations during the livestream via Tiltify.
“We’ve definitely been missing the road, our band, and especially our fans. We can’t think of a better reason to team up with our CMT family and hit the stage at FGL House in support of our fellow downtown Nashville merchants affected by the bombing,” FGL’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard said in a statement. “With the help of our friends at Amazon Music, we’ll be playing and live streaming tunes from Life Rolls On, and can’t wait to share some good vibes with our community. Tune in y’all!”
Stoked to announce we’ll be performing songs from #LifeRollsOn and chatting with our boy @CodyAlan live from @FGLHouse next Wednesday, 2/17! Tune-in at 8pm CT in the @AmazonMusic app and on their @Twitch channel 🎶🎸🤠 https://t.co/tpMIVGJQQ0 pic.twitter.com/CFKP65mH3R
