Florida Georgia Line Sips Whiskey with Seth Meyers
Florida Georgia Line has a lot to raise a glass to recently, so they decided to make a toast with their own whiskey while visiting the set of Late Night With Seth Meyers on Wednesday night (Aug. 16).
Sharing a glass of their Old Camp Peach Pecan Whiskey with the host, the guys talked all things happening in their careers right now. From becoming the owners of their line of spirits to traveling across the country for the Smooth Tour, Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley gave Meyers the rundown on their hectic schedules. But coming back around to the love they have for performing, the country duo expressed how much fun they have concert after concert with their fans.
“That’s probably one of our favorite things—being on tour, being on stage, connecting with the fans. Getting to kinda create the vision and create the show, and watch it come to life every night, man, it’s unreal,” Hubbard explained.
Meyers even asked the difficult questions of how FGL snagged acts outside of the genre like Nelly and the Backstreet Boys to join them out on the road. For Kelley, it’s a surreal moment specifically with BSB as he grew up being a massive fan of the popular boyband.
“Dude, they were my first concert,” Kelley said of the Backstreet Boys. “Sixth grade, House of Blues, Orlando, Florida. I’ll never forget. Crazy.”
The guys talked a bit off of the music scene as a segue from their sold-out Wrigley Field show in Chicago as Kelley admitted he played college baseball at each of the schools he attended during his eligibility. Bringing out a picture of Kelley’s treehouse out in the woods, Meyers got to know more about the outdoor space that happens to be set up with a studio as a workspace for the group.
Of course, they couldn’t end the conversation before some baby talk with Hubbard as he revealed his wife’s due date was December 20. Meyers gave Hubbard the great fatherly advice of never complaining during the first year of the baby’s life before FGL took the Late Night stage to perform their new single, “Smooth.”
Florida Georgia Line is out on the Smooth Tour through the rest of the summer and continuing into fall.
