Florida Georgia Line continues their evolution as trailblazing global superstars in early 2021, announcing the release of their fifth studio album, LIFE ROLLS ON (BMLG Records), out February 12, 2021. Fans can preorder beginning today (12/4).
“I think this personally is just a big, celebratory chapter,” Hubbard explains. “We’ve come a long way since 2012 when we dropped our first album, it’s wild to think about the journey we’ve been on – the things we’ve got to do, the places music has taken us. We’re celebrating life and the good times, the ups and the downs, and the journey it took us to get where we’re at.”
“It’s just evident within the music how good of a time we’re having,” Kelley adds, “and how good of a place in life we are for sure.”
That positive headspace emerges over the heavy-hitter including their current Top 20 single, the arm-in-arm “Long Live,” and FGL’s 17th career #1, “I Love My Country.” Plus, LIFE ROLLS ON features each song on the 6-Pack EP and just as many unheard tracks – 13 of which were written by the pair with a top-shelf stable of collaborators like David Garcia, Jaren Johnston, Dallas Davidson, Ben Hayslip, and Tree Vibez Music songwriters Corey Crowder, Jordan Schmidt, Canaan Smith, and Blake Redferrin.
“It really encompassed the feel of where we’re at, especially in 2020, and everything that everybody’s going through,” Hubbard says. “It’s been a struggle for everybody, and I feel like this song kinda gives hope, and the truth is that life does roll on. Life moves on, and we’re gonna stay positive and keep our head up and look towards the future.”
“I think it means so many different things to so many different people, and that’s what I love about it,” Kelley agrees. “It’s not a sad song, it’s a hopeful song, and it’s got a little bit of every emotion in it. It’s just got something going on that felt like it would complete the record. Life does roll on.”
