If you’ve been following us on Instagram and Snapchat, you probably noticed that we have been allllllll about some Florida Georgia Line the past few weeks. As two southerners hailing from the peach state, we couldn’t have been more thrilled to partner up with the band to celebrate their newest album, Dig Your Roots (available on iTunes now!). Last week, Florida Georgia Line performed at Madison Square Garden for an exclusive One Night Only event sponsored by (who else?!) Budweiser, and your OOONY gals were there to take it all in!
Let’s just say, Budweiser and Florida Georgia Line know how to throw a party! Of course there were plenty of southern-inspired bites (hello chicken and waffles) and beer galore, but we also got to experience an intimate acoustic performance before the actual concert! Florida Georgia Line played one of our favorite tracks from the new Dig Your Roots album, “H.O.L.Y.” – stands for High On Loving You (*sigh*) and obviously everyone’s favorite song that launched Florida Georgia Line into the limelight, “Cruise”. After that, we had a quick meet and greet with the guys before we dashed off to our seats for the concert, which was a BLAST!
The experience brought back a lot of good memories of college at the University of Georgia where we would listen to Florida Georgia Line on repeat while tailgating for football games, at sorority / fraternity functions, on our way to class – we even went to one of their early concerts at the Georgia Theater in downtown Athens! So, it was pretty surreal to see them live in our new home, NYC. Since moving to the city, we’ve definitely embraced the New York lifestyle, and it fits us REALLY well, but every now and then it’s nice to remember our “roots” 🙂
