Life Is a Honeymoon

Album: Dig Your Roots (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • This song draws from reggae beats and features Ziggy Marley, the oldest son of the iconic Bob Marley. The Florida Georgia Line duo had already chosen to include this on Dig Your Roots before having the idea to ask the Jamaican artist to appear on the tune.

    "For us, we just felt like that was the song [for a collaboration with Marley] because it was so reggae and kind of different … Because it fit that vein and it was in that lane, we said, 'Hey, let's ask Marley to help us do that song and just see? I mean, I know that's crazy,'" FGL's Tyler Hubbard recalled. "All of these collaborations were us just dreaming and really knowing that we were kind of crazy, but let's just go for it."

    "We didn't even know how to get in touch with Ziggy or anything," Hubbard continued. "After a few days, we finally got ahold of his management and said, 'Hey, this is what we'd like to do,' and Ziggy was all about it; he was really cool about it … We got that song back, and he really brought that song to life and gave it a lot more meaning. It feels like he just took it to the next level."
