NASHVILLE, TENN. (August 20, 2021) — Out of an abundance of caution, Florida Georgia Line announces today the cancellation of their I LOVE MY COUNTRY TOUR 2021 due to COVID-19.
“There is nothing better than seeing all of your faces from the stage, feeling your good energy, and making memories together,” shares FGL’s Tyler Hubbard. “We were hopeful we could get back on the road this fall, and are so bummed to have to cancel this tour, but we know in our hearts that we still have to make sure we’re keeping our fans and crew safe. It’s unfortunate that we have to cancel but we hope y’all understand. We love our fans and can’t wait to be back out when the time is right.”
“Although we’ve been able to see some of y’all at shows recently, everyone’s continued safety has been weighing heavy on us,” adds FGL’s Brian Kelley. “To our fans, band, crew, and all of the venues around the country, thank you for your love and support! We couldn’t do what we do without you, and we hope we can all do our part to bring live music back soon.”
Presented by Old Camp and sponsored by T-Mobile, the anticipated 29-stop trek featuring Russell Dickerson as direct support, plus openers Lauren Alaina and Redferrin, was due to launch at Cellairis Amphitheatre at Lakewood in Atlanta, GA, on September 24, and run through November 20 at Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle, WA.
For all current ticket holders, refunds will be issued to the original method of payment used at time of purchase. No action is required to obtain a refund.
Headliners of massive arenas, stadiums, back-to-back Las Vegas residencies, and even hosting their own music festival, FGL Fest, the larger-than-life performers have played to over FOUR MILLION fans since their 2012 breakout.
Florida Georgia Line has skyrocketed since releasing consecutive, multi-week #1 smashes in the US and Canada with the GOLD-certified “Round Here,” PLATINUM-certified “Get Your Shine On” and 6X PLATINUM “Cruise.” Breaking the record for longest #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart, “Cruise” has sold over 6.3 million downloads in the US alone and is the second best-selling Country single ever, according to SoundScan. FGL is the only artist in history to join Brooks & Dunn in having their first three singles hit #1 for multiple weeks each.
Poised to follow in the success, FGL’s new emotionally-fueled Top 5-and-rising single, “Stay,” showcases another side of their unique sound and tight harmonies. Amassing international appeal, the duo recently crossed a new career threshold — tallying more than 10 million tracks sold worldwide from their debut album HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES (Republic Nashville), which has been certified PLATINUM in the US and GOLD in Canada.
FGL has appeared on Chelsea Lately, Good Morning America, Conan, TODAY, The Voice, The Tonight with Jay Leno, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, LIVE with Kelly & Michael, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and FOX & Friends as well as the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. In addition to radio, sales and touring success, the talented twosome has been racking up several awards’ show nominations, including nods in the New Artist of the Year category. The hot newcomers have previously taken home ACA, AMA, ACM, CMA and CMT Music Awards and garnered multiple TEEN CHOICE nominations.
