(June 3, 2013) – Breakout duo Florida Georgia Line
debut the brand new music video for “Round Here” on CMT and CMT.com
today (6/3) with subsequent re-airs promoted across all of CMT’s digital platforms and 5.3 million social media fans. The video will air at the top of each hour throughout the morning in “double shot” rotation, paired with their recent hit videos “Cruise” and “Get Your Shine On.” The 24-hour, exclusive world premiere will highlight FGL’s hometowns of Ormond Beach, Florida (Brian Kelley) and Monroe, Georgia (Tyler Hubbard).
The two-day shoot with Director Peter Zavadil captured several scenes in each city, featuring the duo’s family and friends as well as some of their favorite hangouts. Using visual elements to show the duality of their backgrounds, the video also depicts what unifies their “country boy charm” – performing for a crowd, beautiful girls, cool cars and a “here’s to the good times” attitude.
“Round Here” is the follow-up to FGL’s consecutive, multi-week #1 hits – the recently PLATINUM-certified “Get Your Shine On” and TRIPLE-PLATINUM-selling debut “Cruise,” whose remix (featuring Nelly) has ascended into the Top 10 on the Top 40 chart. According to Billboard, “FGL is the first duo in 21 years to top the Country airplay charts with their first two singles,” from their GOLD-certified Republic Nashville debut album, HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES.
