Achieving an unprecedented run on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE is the only Country act to dominate for 100 cumulative weeks since it launched in 1958. The iconic magazine’s Trailblazer Award recipients have become global entertainers with milestones of this stature leading their revolutionary career. As their 3X PLATINUM-certified collaboration “Meant to Be” with MULTI-PLATINUM singer-songwriter BEBE REXHA makes history, FGL has triumphed with six total Hot Country Songs chart-toppers – also including “Cruise”; “Stay”; “This Is How We Roll”; “Dirt”; “H.O.L.Y.” – since coming on the scene in 2012.
“We set out to write good songs, so to see them travel far beyond our reach is still hard to wrap our heads around,” FGL’s Brian Kelley shares with Billboard. “We are so thankful to Country radio, our fans and our team for believing in even our wildest dreams.”
“Meant to Be,” their first No. 1 debut on Hot Country Songs, also put Rexha on the map as the first solo female to claim the title. Continuing the chart’s longest-running streak, the monster hit has held its chief position for 44 weeks straight, after premiering on December 16, 2017. Released via Warner Bros. Records and BMLG Records to both Pop and Country radio, FGL’s Tyler Hubbard, Rexha, Josh Miller, and David Garcia penned "Meant to Be," which has since surpassed 1 billion total streams globally and scores the superstar duo’s 15th No. 1 overall as artists.
“I continue to be humbled and am honestly speechless by watching what our supporters and fans have done for us,” Hubbard admits to Billboard. “Being a part of Country music history is more than a dream come true, and getting to do what we love on this level is something we will never take for granted.”
Amplifying FGL’s red-hot reign, lead single "Simple," off their much-anticipated forthcoming album on BMLG Records, is on the verge of reaching the top spot at Country radio.
In a profile on FGL, The Washington Post spotlights how the duo’s “spell is unbroken” and further details how “Florida Georgia Line could have been a one-hit wonder. Instead, they built an empire.” Read the full feature here.
