Firing up the suspense of the release of FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE’s fourth studio album, CAN’T SAY I AIN’T COUNTRY (BMLG Records), the GRAMMY nominees announced their 2019 CAN’T SAY I AIN’T COUNTRY TOUR exclusively with Billboard today. The announcement included details for FGL Fest set to take place at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway on September 7. FGL Fest is a multi-act music event produced by Live Nation and created to coincide with the Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard Powered by Florida Georgia Line race which takes place at IMS on September 8. FGL Fest features FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE plus DAN + SHAY, NELLY, MITCHELL TENPENNY, and more acts who will be announced soon.
After headlining high-profile festivals and fairs last year, in addition to their applauded FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE LIVE FROM LAS VEGAS residency, the trek launches on June 13 at Walmart AMP in Rogers, AR. Billboard’s first-ever Trailblazer Award recipients will crisscross the country through September 28 at FivePoint Amphitheatre in Irvine, CA.
With a “perfectly cheeky album title” (USA TODAY), FGL will perform songs from the 19-deep track list of their anticipated project, including their current chart-rising single, “Talk You Out of It.” Captained by longtime producer Joey Moi with FGL notching their first co-producer credit, CAN’T SAY I AIN’T COUNTRY is now available for preorder and drops February 15, complete with heavy-hitting guest collaborations with JASON DERULO, JASON ALDEAN, and HARDY.
Pushing pedal to the metal, the global entertainers have also announced their lineup for this summer’s FGL Fest slated for September 7, at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. With additional details to follow, FGL is geared up to take the stage plus DAN + SHAY, NELLY, MITCHELL TENPENNY, and more. FGL’s fan club community, FGL Lifers, have first presale access to tickets beginning Monday (1/14), at 10 a.m. ET through Thursday (1/17), at 10 p.m. ET. Citi® card members gain entry starting Tuesday (1/15), at 10 a.m. ET through Thursday (1/17), at 10 p.m. ET with Citi’s Private Pass® program.

The powerhouse duo front this month’s Nashville Lifestyle’s cover of “The Music Issue,” with the magazine praising, “In the country music industry, perhaps no star is rising — or business expanding — more rapidly than that of the Florida Georgia Line brand.”
FGL is nominated for Best Country Duo/Group Performance at the 61st GRAMMY Awards (airs live on CBS on February 10) for 2018’s “chart-busting hit of the year” (The Associated Press) “Meant to Be.” The 4X PLATINUM-certified, #1 (with Bebe Rexha), reigned the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for 50 weeks straight.
