Song:Get Your Shine On
Album:Here's To The Good Times
Florida Georgia Line made a huge splash with their 2012 debut CD Here's To The Good Times. Get Your Shine On is one of their four top five country hits. And they have also crossed over to pop. Their music has a good time party vibe and a rock backbeat that appeals to the non-country audience. Brian Kelley is from Ormond Beach, FL. Tyler Hubbard is from Monroe, GA. They met while attending Belmont University in Nashville and started writing together. They released an EP in 2010 and this led to a songwriting and management contract with Big Loud Mountain owned by veteran songwriter Craig Wiseman and Canadian record producer Joey Moi. Moi is best known for producing Nickelback and he produced Jake Owen's Barefoot Blue Jean Night. A second EP got them a deal with Republic Nashville. Here's To The Good Times was released Dec. 2012. Six new songs were added to the five that were on the EP. Their debut single Cruise topped the country chart and reached #4 on the Billboard Hot 100. Get Your Shine On was the second single and it reached #5 on the Country Singles chart. Kelley and Hubbard wrote Get Your Shine on with Rodney Clawson and Chris Tompkins. Clawson is under contract to Big Loud Mountain and has written hits for Jason Aldean. Tompkins co-wrote Jesus Take The Wheel for Carrie Underwood. Here's To The Good Times has sold almost two million copies. So it's been a huge success for a debut CD. Some would complain that Florida Georgia Line is more rock than country. A lot of the success is due to the rock elements from producer Moi. After winning a few awards, Florida Georgia Line just released an iTunes Sessions EP that is only available as a digital download. And they are on tour currently. They have certainly made a big splash but as always, time will tell if Florida Georgia Line can sustain that success.
