Florida Georgia Line Is Doing A Las Vegas Residency

If you'll be in Vegas this December, you've got 5 nights to see them and a very special opener!

I guess it was meant to be.

Country music duo Florida Georgia Line is coming to Las Vegas! The musicians will headline their first residency for five nights, on December 1, 5, 7, 8 and 11 at Planet Hollywood’s Zappos Theater. Mason Ramsey, better known as the “Walmart yodeler,” will open for them. Tickets go on sale on June 9 at 10:00 a.m. PST. There are also a number of presales.

“From writing on the back of tailgates, to selling out our first stadium tour last summer, and now bringing good music and good vibes to the Strip, [Brian Kelley] and I just feel so blessed,” Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line told E! News. “It’s Vegas, baby! We can’t believe it!”

On June 1, the duo released two new songs, “Colorado” and “Simple,” from their upcoming fourth studio album. Florida Georgia Line is nominated for four awards at the 2018 CMT Music Awards. They’re also scheduled to perform at the CMA Music Festival in Nashville on June 10.

“We keep reaching our wildest dreams!” Kelley told E! about his excitement over the Vegas shows. “Last year I got to direct my first video here and the city’s energy is just out of this world. We’re all in for this one!”

The duo joins the list of popular acts signing on for residencies in Sin City. Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Gwen Stefani and Celine Dion are among those who regularly perform on the Strip.

Florida Georgia Line first rose to prominence in 2012 with their hit song, “Cruise,” which spent 24 weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. As of May 30, their song “Meant to Be,” a collaboration with pop artist Bebe Rexha, had spent 26 consecutive weeks at number one, breaking their previous record.

The band is currently on tour and has upcoming concert dates scheduled throughout the United States and Canada, including at a number of state fairs and music festivals.
