Tyler Hubbard continues to impress as both a singer and songwriter (he was one of four co-writers on the tune). “Get Your Shine On” This is Florida-Georgia Line’s second #1 Billboard Country hit! (see the post above regarding “Cruise” which was their first #1.)
They also have the “Cruise” remix with Nelly on the Hot 100 and the original release of “Cruise” has broken a 52 year old record set in 1962: http://www.theboot.com/2013/05/28/florida-georgia-line-set-billboard-record-with-cruise/
Anytime a new act has a level of success song publishers are on the lookout for similar material and Florida-Georgia Line is in the midst of being one of the biggest/fastest breakthrough acts in the history of country music. Fun loving songs are what Fla-Ga Line is about so penning something in that vein right now may stamp your ticket to success also.
The Country Breakout Awards were held at Margaritaville on Broadway, Nashville 2-26-13 with Dierks Bentley winning male vocalist of the year and Miranda Lambert taking female vocalist if the year honors.
Dierks accepted in person and gave a shout out to his fan club sitting in the front row.
