Florida Georgia Line heads into tomorrow night's (Wednesday, November 14th) CMA Awards with three nominations for Vocal Duo, Musical Event and Single of the Year for “Meant to Be.” Although they’ve won four CMA awards in the past, Tyler Hubbard tells us it never gets old. [“We’re always honored and humbled to be a part of these awards shows and to be nominated, especially CMAs. We have so many memories that we’ve made there over the years, and we were there before we were FGL, you know, watching that and being a fan. So that just really never gets old to be honest. And to be nominated, kind of a continued validation if you will, just a nod of the hat from the industry and from our peers and from our fans. So it’s going to be a great night. We’re excited. And it’s also always kind of like a little country music family reunion so we’ll get to see all of our friends and catch up a little bit.”] SOUNDCUE (:29 OC: . . . a little bit.)
FGL will also be performing their hit single, “Meant to Be,” with Bebe Rexha, on the CMA Awards, airing live from Nashville on ABC beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
In other FGL news, Brian Kelley and his wife, Brittney, have been working hard to help their Florida community in the wake of Hurricane Michael. The Kelleys have aided displaced animals; repaired structures and cut down trees; and recently partnered with Florida-based companies to bring brand new clothes, shoes, and toys to the families of Port St. Joe Elementary School in Port St. Joe, FL.
Brian shared many pictures and video on Instagram writing, "Thankful to help lead such an incredible team and relief efforts for our panhandle. Every person, every dollar matters. Beyond blessed to give, grow, and rebuild together. Lord may you continue to shine your light on our state!"
For fans wanting to continue to help the cause, a GoFundMe page, Tribe Kelley Hurricane Relief, has been launched by the Kelleys with 100% of proceeds being donated. Their goal is set at $500,000.
