Summerfest 2015 has one headline date set. It will be Florida Georgia Line at the Marcus Amphitheater on June 24. Opening for the band will be Frankie Ballard and Thomas Rhett. How does a “side stage” band make it as a headliner in just two short years? They make a hit song that gets played over and over again. Florida Georgia Line is one of the many “Bro Country” acts that have popped up like weeds in the past few years. They are sure to play their hit song “Cruise” along with pretty much all of their two other albums. Since they are so new to the country music scene, they have a very small catalog of songs to choose from.
Florida Georgia Line started with a six song EP that was released without a major label. The band released a second EB with the help of Big Mountain Records. That’s where fans first found the song Cruise. It was also added to their first full length album which came out in 2012. For six months, the disk was topping the charts and bringing in new fans by the thousands. Their new CD, titled Anything Goes has been released just weeks ago, and it looks like the video “Sun Daze” will be hitting one million views in very short order.
