Florida Georiga Line just dropped a brand new song and it’s a feel-good tune that celebrates the good times in life.

Long Live” finds the duo returning to their roots with a sound that brings their first few singles to mind. Lyrically, “Long Live” finds Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley raising a glass to the simple things in life that often go unappreciated.

“Long live all the small towners, sunup to sundowners/ That old school Haggard and Hank/ 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/ Long live this way of life, long live nights like these/Long live, long live, long live/ Long live nights like these.” they sing on the chorus.

The duo co-wrote the song alongside Corey Crowder, David Garcia and Josh Miller. The track was co-produced by Hubbard, Kelley, and Crowder.

“This one is for the nights you never want to end. It’s a celebration of all the good times with great friends and cold drinks,” shares Hubbard and Kelley. “We had a lot of fun reminiscing when writing, and hope it takes our fans back too! Kick back with your loved ones, turn it up, and relive some of your glory days while making new memories. Long live!”

The song follows FGL’s 17th career No.1 “I Love My Country.” The duo is set to perform the chart-topping smash during the upcoming ACM Awards broadcast on Wednesday, September 16 on CBS.
