People Are Different

Album: Can't Say I Ain't Country (2019)

Songfacts®:

  • On this a slow, acoustic guitar-based ballad, Florida Georgia Line urge us to respect all people, even those with differing lifestyles and viewpoints.

    Walk down the street and smile at a stranger
    Heart on your sleeve
    And love thy neighbor
    No matter what shape
    No matter what color
    Break bread instead of fightin' each other


    FGL's Tyler Hubbard said in a video on the duo's You Tube channel: "'People are Different' is just a reminder that people are different. It's always good to keep that prospective and you never know what someone has been through and you really haven't walked in their shoes until you have."
  • "People Are Different" was written by "Simple" co-writers Michael Hardy and Mark Holman along with Nashville songsmith Hillary Lindsay. Hubbard said: "We just fell in love with that song we knew it belonged on our record and it's probably one of my favorite songs to sing on."
