Long Live

Album: yet to be titled (2020)

Songfacts®:

  • Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley have come a long way since their bro-country debut hit "Cruise." (The first use of the term "bro-country" was in a New York magazine article talking about that song). Now both happily married, on "Long Live" the Florida Georgia Line pair harken back to their younger days as they raise their glasses to cold beer, dirty trucks and pretty girls.

    Long live longneck bottles and wide-open throttles
    And old dirt roads with no name
    Long live them country girls, long legs in cut up jeans


    Florida Georgia Line announced on social media the song is one "for the late nights with great friends and cold drinks. It's time, y'all!"
  • The Florida Georgia Line duo wrote the summer song with Josh Miller, David Garcia and Corey Crowder during the Can't Say I Ain't Country Tour in 2019. Recorded at their home studio, the pair released the track on September 10, 2020.
  • Tyler Hubbard, Corey Crowder and Brian Kelley's rock-flecked production recalls the duo's early recordings with producer Joey Moi.
