Florida Georgia Line has added three performances to their Smooth Tour 2017, including a stop at Fenway Park in Boston on July 7, Target Field in Minneapolis on July 29, and Wrigley Field in Chicago on Aug. 12. The popular country duo made the video announcement on Good Morning America on March 7, 2017, promising that the new stadium tour will be a big party for the performers and the fans, with performances by The Backstreet Boys, Grammy-winning hip-hop artist Nelly and country star Chris Lane.
FGL’s Brian Kelley told Rolling Stone Country about the current leg of the tour, saying, "It's as big as ever, it's as loud as ever. It's a roller coaster of emotion. We're going [to] get you up, we're gonna bring you down to church and we're gonna get you high again."
Nelly and Chris Lane will be touring with Florida Georgia Line all summer. The Backstreet Boys will only be performing at the three stadium shows, according to the Twin Cities Pioneer Press on March 7, 2017.
Florida Georgia Line collaborated with The Backstreet Boys on their new hit single “God, Your Mama, And Me.” The music video reveals romantic snippets of the real-life love story of each member of FGL and The Backstreet Boys.
Florida Georgia Line and The Backstreet Boys will perform at the “52nd Academy of Country Music Awards” on April 2, 2017. The show will air live from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on CBS, according to an announcement on the Backstreet Boys website.
Florida Georgia Line is currently on their Dig You Roots tour. The duo, Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard, seemed to come out of nowhere to become one of biggest country acts of the decade. Nearly every one of their singles went platinum or better, including “H.O.L.Y.,” “Round Here,” “Stay,” Dirt” and “This is How We Roll,” according to the Twin Cities Pioneer Press on March 7, 2017.
The 90s group The Backstreet Boys is currently performing at their Larger Than Life residency at The AXIS Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. Billboard called their Las Vegas performance "Backstreet Boys Las Vegas Residency A Thrilling Trip Down Memory Lane," in a review published on March 9, 2017. The Backstreet Boys include singers AJ McLean, Nick Carter, Brian Littrell, Howie Dorough and Kevin Richardson
