The guys of Florida Georgia Line have a lot to celebrate this week as their latest hit, “I Love My Country,” climbed to the No.1 spot on the Country Aircheck/Mediabase Country Airplay chart.
The feel-good anthem, which has raked in over 118.2 million global streams to date, is the duo’s 17th career chart-topper.
Released in March, “I Love My Country” is the lead single from FGL’s 6-Pack EP. The party-ready track finds the duo returning to their roots. Singing about their love for “beer out the can, liquor out the bottle” and name dropping George Strait, FGL‘s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley definitely delivered with this barn burner.
“I love my country, I love my country/ Six strings and fiddles, whiskey from Kentucky/ We keep it funky, we like how it sounds/ Monday to Sunday, yeah, I love my country/ I’m loud and proud, rolling into town/ Hanging out the window, like a blue tick hound/ Ain’t sorry, ain’t nothing to be sorry about/ I love my country and I love my country/ Up loud,” they sing throughout the chorus.
Florida Georgia Line is currently working on their fifth studio album. The duo previously shared that the 6-Pack EP offers fans a taste of what’s to come on their next full-length project.
“I think the 6-Pack is an indication of what’s to come on this album. It’s kind of diverse, it’s well-rounded, still has a little something for everybody, and that’s kind of what this album is,” Hubbard said. “It’s also kind of a throwback to where FGL started, with our first album, Here’s to the Good Times, and we kinda think it sort of takes us on a journey, and it was a lot of fun to kinda take that together in the recording process, and we hope the fans enjoy it as much as we do.”
