Florida Georgia Line Talk Football
. (Radio.com) In a seemingly inevitable moment of cross-promotional synergy, country duo Florida Georgia Line were tapped last Halloween to headline a kickoff concert for the annual (and quite massive) Florida vs. Georgia football game weekend in Jacksonville, Florida, unofficially dubbed "the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party."
In addition to the day-long concert that also featured Cole Swindell, the Cadillac Three and more, Florida Georgia Line were also recruited to take part in the game itself, participating in the opening coin toss. Well, sort of.
"We didn't do anything," admits one half of the band, Tyler Hubbard, during a recent Radio.com interview regarding the group's coin toss duties. "We just walked out there and waved and walked back."
"It felt a little awkward," continues partner Brian Kelley. "We were trying not to be in the way of anybody, you know. We don't want to mess the coin toss up. It's starts the day off right. You can't screw that up."
The two bandmembers consider themselves genuine football fans, proclaiming the Tennessee Titans as their favorite NFL squad, and the one they'd most like to see utilize a Florida Georgia Line track as an anthem.
"I'd say if the Titans used 'This is How We Roll,' that would be pretty cool," enthuses Kelley. "It's a nice anthem, right? Maybe I'm biased."
"Either that or 'Every Night,'" adds Hubbard, referencing the last song on the group's second studio full-length, Anything Goes, released last year. Read more here.
