RECORD-SHATTERING “MEANT TO BE” DOMINATES
36 WEEKS ATOP BILLBOARD HOT COUNTRY SONGS CHART
APPEARS ON ABC’S CMA FEST SPECIAL TOMORROW(8/8)
SHOW: The Late Late Show with James Corden
DATE: August 14
TIME: 12:37 a.m./11:37 p.m. c
NASHVILLE, TENN. (August 7, 2018) — Surging Country airwaves at Top 10-and-climbing, global entertainers FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE are slated to make their return to CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden next Tuesday, August 14, with roots-infused lead single, “Simple.”
“Simple” was penned by FGL’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, alongside Michael Hardy and Mark Holman. The buzzed-about homespun melody delivers a first taste of their hotly anticipated fourth studio album (BMLG Records), which Forbes predicts, “will almost certainly follow in the footsteps of the band’s previous three and make itself comfortable at No. 1.”
The late-night slot follows FGL’s performance back in November, when they brought their 3X PLATINUM-certified mega-smash “Meant to Be” to the program with multi-platinum singer-songwriter BEBE REXHA. Exceeding 1 billion total streams globally, “Meant to Be” is now the longest-running #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart at 36 weeks.
On August 13, the BillboardTrailblazer Award recipients will join Rexha for a special conversation and performance at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, CA. Hosted by Billboard’s West Coast Editor Melinda Newman, the anticipated one-night-only event is officially sold out.
ABC’s three-hour CMA Fest special tomorrow night (8/8) will also include a performance by FGL. Beginning at 8/7c, fans can experience the annual four-day music festival, as the high-energy concert footage was recorded at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium in June.
