Florida Georgia Line is the relatively new country music duo of Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard. Their second EP, "It'z Just What We Do," charted on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart.

The duo's first studio album, "Here's to the Good Times," was produced by Joey Moi on the Republic Nashville label and released on Dec. 4, 2012. "Cruise," the first single, reached No. 1 on the Country Airplay chart soon after, and a version of "Cruise" featuring Nelly later hit No.4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and helped return the song to No. 1 spot on the Hot Country Songs chart in April 2013.

The album's second single, "Get Your Shine On", was released to country radio on Jan. 21 and reached No. 1 on the Country Airplay chart in May. "Round Here" was released as the album's third single on June 3.
