- in Country
Billboard's first-ever Trailblazer Award recipients continue to build their ever-expanding empire of innovative artistry and entrepreneurial endeavors throughout their colossal career. With their romantic roots-infused "Simple" surging Country charts, as the lead single off their anticipated fourth studio album, the kings of collaborations are shattering records with 3X Platinum-certified #1 "Meant to Be" with Bebe Rexha (14th #1 overall as artists plus leads the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for a 28th week, surpassing FGL's own "Cruise" for the second-longest reign overall.) Exceeding 4.2 billion streams, 31 million tracks and more than 4.3 million albums sold worldwide, Florida Georgia Line remains the first and only Country act to achieve RIAA's DIAMOND certification (10 million copies sold) for their breakout "Cruise," which is the best-selling digital Country single of all time (SoundScan). Since 2012, FGL has earned prestigious honors from the AMAs, ACM Awards, CMA Awards, Billboard Music Awards, and CMT Music Awards, plus left their mark on several chart-crushing songs as writers.
