Nashville, Tenn. (February 22, 2017) – Musical worlds will collide this summer as superstar Country duo FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE, Hip-hop icon NELLY and breakout star CHRIS LANE embark on the groundbreaking, genre-busting THE SMOOTH TOUR 2017, presented by Old Camp Whiskey and sponsored by Advance Auto Parts.
Offering an unparalleled night of crossover hits, the super tour begins June 2 in Austin, Texas, with stops nationwide in cities like San Diego, Denver and Tampa. THE SMOOTH TOUR ends with a two-night stand October 20 – 21 in Alpharetta, Georgia, just outside Atlanta, a melting pot for inventive collaborations.

Live Nation is the official promoter of the tour and remaining dates go on sale beginning February 24.
“It’s good to be back out on tour with some of our best friends, Nelly and Chris Lane,” exclaims FGL’s Brian Kelley. “If it’s any indication of our ballpark tour a couple years ago, this should be the party of the year! We are excited to see and connect with all of our fans, and make as many memories as we can.”
FGL and Nelly first collaborated on a remix of the duo’s epic 2012 debut single, “Cruise,” a DIAMOND-certified hit that reached #4 on Billboard’s all-genre Hot 100 chart. Since then, they have teamed up for numerous concert and award show appearances. Lane broke out in 2015 with his addictive GOLD-certified #1 debut, “Fix,” and is currently out on FGL’s 2017 DIG YOUR ROOTS TOUR.
FGL’s electrifying 2017 DIG YOUR ROOTS TOUR is on the road now, selling out shows in support of their chart-topping BMLG Records DIG YOUR ROOTS album. The project has already delivered back-to-back #1 singles with the 2X PLATINUM-certified “H.O.L.Y.” – which spent an incredible 18 weeks atop Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart – and GOLD-certified “May We All” (featuring Tim McGraw). The duo’s third chart-rising single, “God, Your Mama, And Me,” is a knockout collaboration with Backstreet Boys. Watch the new music video here: smarturl.it/GYMAMpremiere. To date, the undeniable duo has notched 12 chart-topping singles.
