BMLG Records superstars FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE are set to give fans a first look at their genre-defying THE SMOOTH TOUR 2017, appearing with Hip-Hop icon and tourmate NELLY on ABC’s Good Morning America Friday (5/26) as part of the show’s 2017 Summer Concert Series.
Performing an early morning set of Country and Hip-Hop hits in New York City’s Central Park, the appearance will serve as a preview of what’s to come out on the road. A history-making string of shows, THE SMOOTH TOUR 2017 will also include breakout Country star CHRIS LANE and ‘90s Pop idols BACKSTREET BOYS, who are featured on FGL’s current Top 10, PLATINUM-certified single, “God, Your Mama, And Me,” and join the duo’s first-ever headlining stadium concerts.
THE SMOOTH TOUR 2017 kicks off with a bang next weekend (6/2) in Austin, Texas, before crisscrossing the country with more than 40 dates lined up through October. Highlights of the run include three major stadium dates in Boston (7/7), Minneapolis (7/29) and Chicago (8/12), and fans can enter a NEW SWEEPSTAKES to win a fly-away trip for two and catch one of the shows.
Presented by tour sponsor Advance Auto Parts, the gigantic Stadium Sweepstakes will begin on the duo’s website – floridageorgialine.com – today, MAY 24. Three fly-away winners will be chosen (one for each stadium date, receiving airfare, ground transportation, lodging, great tickets to the show and meet-and-greets with FGL for two), as well as three drive-in winners (who will receive tickets for two, hotel, and a gas card). Other winners will also receive pairs of tickets for one of the massive stadium blowouts.
Live Nation is the official promoter of THE SMOOTH TOUR 2017, sponsored by Advance Auto Parts and presented by Old Camp Whiskey. Tickets can be purchased at LiveNation.com.
Meanwhile, FGL scored a win for Top Country Song (“H.O.L.Y.”) and collaborated with John Legend for a “soulful” (People Magazine) performance of his hit “Surefire” and the duo’s chart-topper “H.O.L.Y.” at Sunday’s (5/21) 2017 Billboard Music Awards. FGL is also nominated three times at the upcoming fan-voted 2017 CMT Music Awards (6/7) – vying for Video of the Year, Duo Video of the Year, and Collaborative Video of the Year. Voting is now open on CMT.com.
