Florida Georgia Line Talk New Album Dig Your Roots

Florida Georgia Line

(Radio.com) "It's cool to be honest with what you've been through and where you come from," Florida Georgia Line's Brian Kelley tells Radio.com. He's talking about a few things at once: he's referencing the fact that he and bandmate Tyler Hubbard appreciate their southern background and upbringing. But he's also discussing their musical influences, some of whom pop up on the duo's new album, Dig Your Roots.

Tyler Hubbard elaborates, "I think diggin' our roots means' it's just about taking a look back at the way we were raised, the things we learned, it's making sure we're being the men we want to be, presently, and looking towards the future. That encompasses the whole concept of the album, and of our tour, and really the last couple years of our life."

Kelley continues: "I think we've always tried to dig our roots, and be as real as we can be. I think country music is [about] where you're at, and being as transparent as you can be. When we put out 'Cruise,' that's exactly where we were at, when we put out 'Dirt,' that was exactly where we were at."

Kelley says that some of the songs on the album have been written for a few years, but they didn't fit on FGL's prior two albums: "There's some songs on this album that we dug out of the woodwork: 'While He's Still Around,' 'Grow Old,' some other songs that we needed to hit, some themes, some messages that we thought were important, there's so many sides to who we are, and it's hard to get it out in two or three albums. This third album has many different dynamics, and it's cool to show those sides and be a bit more vulnerable with our fans." Read more here.
