Superstar duo Florida Georgia Line are toasting the success of another Number One, notching their 18th chart topper with the good-times-forever anthem, “Long Live.”

Sitting atop both of country radio’s national spin lists this week (the Billboard Country Airplay and Country Aircheck/Mediabase Country Airplay charts), the news continues a familiar plot for Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley — but neither is getting bored just yet. Preaching arm-in-arm nostalgia with big hooks and a modern-pop groove, “Long Live” finds them closing in on 20 Number One hits since their meteoric rise after 2012’s “Cruise.”

“Having our fans and Country radio support us all of these years has been nothing short of a blessing,” Hubbard and Kelley share in a statement to press. “We couldn’t imagine a better song to mark our 18th! Here’s to all of the good times and to many more ‘Long Live’ nights!”

Capturing the feel of a night you wish would last forever, “Long Live” was co-written by the duo with Corey Crowder, David Garcia, and Josh Miller. It arrived last fall ahead of their fifth album, Life Rolls On, and the guys are currently featured on another cans-in-the-air jam with a big-picture theme — Chase Rice’s “Drinkin’ Beer. Talkin’ God. Amen.”

Meanwhile, FGL are in the running for another Duo of the Year honor at this year’s ACM Awards (airing live April 18 on CBS), but they’re also pursuing projects away from the FGL brand. Hubbard has released two solo collabs (including one with Tim McGraw on “Undivided”), and Kelley just announced a solo endeavor of his own, dubbing himself a “beach cowboy.”
