Florida Georgia Line Draft Nelly, Reveal Dates for Cross-Genre Smooth Tour 2017
Florida Georgia Line have revealed the cities and dates for a unique new tour that will cross genre lines. The superstar country duo drafted hip-hop icon Nelly and breakout country star Chris Lane for the Smooth Tour 2017, which kicks off in June.
The Smooth Tour 2017 launches in Austin on June 2 and will visit cities including San Diego, Denver and Tampa before wrapping up with a two-night stand Oct. 20-21 in Alpharetta, Ga., a suburb of Atlanta. Tickets to 39 upcoming shows are now on sale as part of Live Nation’s Megaticket, with more information available at Megaticket.com. Live Nation is the official promoter of the Smooth Tour 2017, with the remaining dates slated to go on sale Feb. 24.
FGL and Nelly first collaborated on a remix of the duo’s 2012 debut single, “Cruise,” a Diamond-certified hit that reached No. 4 on Billboard’s all-genre Hot 100 chart. They have teamed up for numerous concert and award show appearances, but this marks their first full tour together.
Country Tours Hitting the Road in 2017
"It's good to be back out on tour with some of our best friends, Nelly and Chris Lane," FGL singer Brian Kelley says in a press release. "If it's any indication of our ballpark tour a couple years ago, this should be the party of the year! We are excited to see and connect with all of our fans, and make as many memories as we can."
The duo are currently on the road on their Dig Your Roots Tour, which includes Lane. It's in support of their third studio album, Dig Your Roots, which has scored back-to-back No. 1 hits with "H.O.L.Y." and "May We All," a collaboration with Tim McGraw. Their current single, "God, Your Mama, and Me," again crosses genre lines by pairing them with the Backstreet Boys. They have just released a video for the song that draws on footage from their private home lives to underscore the romantic themes of the song.
