Florida Georgia Line is an American country duo consisting of lead vocalist, Tyler Hubbard and backing vocalist, Brian Kelley. They have achieved major success since their inception and are one of the most successful country music acts. Their 2012 debut single “Cruise”, which remains their most popular song, broke two major sales records: it was downloaded over seven million times, making it the first country song ever to receive the Diamond certification, and it became the best-selling digital country song of all time, with 24 weeks at number one, until it was surpassed in July 2017 by Sam Hunt’s “Body Like a Back Road”, “Cruise” helped to pioneer a style of country music known as “bro-country”, which incorporates production elements from rock and hip-hop music, and tends to cover subject matter such as partying, drinking, driving trucks and romantic attraction. Much of their subsequent music has been tagged with the “bro-country” label as well.
Florida Georgia Line was formed in 2010 in Nashville, Tennessee and began as a covers band. In December 2011, they signed to the Big Loud Mountain label. Their second EP, It’z Just What We Do, was released in 2012 and charted on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. Several months later they signed with Republic Nashville, part of the Big Machine Label Group. They released their second album, Anything Goes on October 14, 2014. Their third album, Dig Your Roots, was released on August 26, 2016.

Rodney Crowell is a Grammy Award winning American musician, known primarily for his work as a singer and songwriter in the country music genre.
He came from a musical family and at age 11, he started playing drums in his father’s band. In his teen years, he played in various garage rock bands.

Everly Brothers – Phil and Don Everly were American brothers who shot to fame in their teen years with their song “Bye Bye Love” (written by Felice and Boudleaux Bryant who wrote most of their subsequent hits). They were especially noted for their close harmony singing style.
They were no strangers to performing as they had been part of a radio show hosted by their parents. Dad (Ike) was a keen guitar player and their Mother (Margaret) sang. Ike instilled in his sons his own love for music, from country and western to blues and everything in between and encouraged the boys to sing and to learn guitar.
The Everly Brothers were popular artists worldwide in the 1950’s through 1970’s and even The Beatles have cited them as a musical influence. They have been honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
