94.9 The Wolf welcomes Florida Georgia Line to the WA State Fair on Sunday Sept. 2nd, 2018
Get ready for a big night of country music when The Washington State Fair welcomes Country Duo Florida Georgia Line with special guest Morgan Wallen. FGL’s Platinum-certified musical evolution, DIG YOUR ROOTS, propelled the history-making duo to number one on the all-genre Billboard Artist 100 and Country Albums charts. Continuing the epic momentum, the album has delivered three consecutive number one smashes – the 3X PLATINUM-certified lead single “H.O.L.Y.” (Number one on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for 18 straight weeks), Platinum-certified hits “May We All” (featuring Tim McGraw) and “God, Your Mama, And Me” (featuring Backstreet Boys).
Since their breakout in 2012, FGL has earned prestigious honors from the AMA, ACM Awards, CMA Awards, Billboard Music Awards and CMT Music Awards. Their previous BMLG Records releases – two times platinum debut HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES and Platinum ANYTHING GOES – have attributed to sales surpassing 30 million tracks and more than 4.2 million albums worldwide.
Morgan Wallen, grew up in Appalachia, and moved to Nashville in July 2015, not sure what he would find, but convinced that he should at least give his dreams a legitimate shot. Less than a year later, he’d already been signed to Big Loud Records, recorded some initial tracks with producer Joey Moi (Florida Georgia Line, Jake Owen) and hit the road on his first radio promotion tour.
His mother signed him up to audition for NBC’s The Voice, convinced that he’d do well. Wallen had no idea what to expect – he’d never seen the show – but he was chosen by Usher and was later stolen by Adam Levine. The last song he performed during his run, a cover of Florida Georgia Line’s “Stay,” helped him steer him toward his creative destiny.
