The record-breaking duo is riding high as their latest single, “This Is How We Roll” featuring Luke Bryan, has been officially certified GOLD for sales exceeding 500,000. The song is from the deluxe version of their chart-topping, PLATINUM-certified debut album HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES (Republic Nashville).
FGL has exploded since releasing four consecutive, multi-week #1 smashes in the US and Canada with the PLATINUM-certified hits “Stay,” “Get Your Shine On,” “Round Here,” and 6X PLATINUM “Cruise,” whose sales are combined with the remix featuring Nelly. Breaking the record for longest #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart, “Cruise” has sold nearly 6.8 million downloads in the US alone and is the best-selling digital Country single of all time according to SoundScan.
FGL has racked up four nominations – Vocal Duo of the Year, Album of the Year (HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES), Single of the Year (“Cruise”) and Vocal Event of the Year (“Cruise” Remix featuring Nelly) – for the ACM Awards. The talented pair will also host the ACM Fan Jam during the show, which airs April 6 at 8:00P Eastern on CBS.
The unstoppable duo is currently on the road as direct support for Jason Aldean’s NIGHT TRAIN Tour and will turn up the heat with their headline run – THIS IS HOW WE ROLL SUMMER SERIES 2014 – featuring special guest Nelly and opening act Chris Lane.
