Florida Georgia Line played to a sold out, record breaking crowd in Greenville, SC, this past Saturday, Nov. 9. It was the largest crowd yet on their first headlining tour. Fans endured difficulties once they arrived to the arena due to trouble with Ticketmaster’s paperless ticketing system which was down. As a result, many were still outside waiting to get in when the opening acts, Tyler Farr and then Colt Ford, took the stage. Everyone eventually got inside and experienced a night of great music.
Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard put on a phenomenal show with high energy from start to finish. The guys barely stood still for the entire performance keeping the crowd on their feet dancing and singing along. It didn’t appear that a single one of the sold out seats had anyone sitting in them for the duration of the show. The two were still celebrating their two wins at the CMA Awards last week where they took home trophies for Vocal Duo of the Year and Single of the Year for their hit song “Cruise”.
The duo performed all the songs on their current cd, ‘Here’s To The Good Times’, also the name of their current tour. The sound of the crowd belting out the words to almost every song was as loud as the band as the guys played hit after hit, “Cruise”, "It’z Just What We Do”, “Stay”, “Round Here”, “Party People”, “Dayum, Baby”, “Get Your Shine On”, "Tell Me How You Like It”, “Here’s To The Good Times”, “Hell Raisin’ Heat Of The Summer” and “Tip It Back”. They did an amazing cover of “Grenade” (Bruno Mars) adding their own style to the song. Much to the crowd’s delight, Colt Ford and Tyler Farr joined the guys onstage for a sing along of rap and dance tunes. FGL put on one of the most entertaining and fun shows I’ve seen. These guys have the support of an awesome band and I suggest you get a ticket and see them live if you haven’t already. I’ll definitely be seeing them every chance I get!
Tyler Farr opened and took the stage first. He had the crowd singing along to his current radio hit, “Redneck Crazy”. Farr was joined by Colt Ford during his set. All of these guys seem to be having a blast out on the road together. Ford then took the stage a little later for his set which was full of country rap and good fun for all. He performed “Dirt Road Anthem” which he co-wrote and originally recorded with Brantley Gilbert, which was a crowd favorite.
Later this month (Nov. 25), FGL will release a deluxe version of their debut album, titled 'Here’s to the Good Times . . . This Is How We Roll'. The project will contain all 11 tracks found on their 'Here’s to The Good Times' album as well as six new tunes: "This Is How We Roll" (feat. Luke Bryan),"Take It Out On Me", "People Back Home", "Headphones", "Hands On You", and "Cruise" (feat. Nelly) [Remix].
