There are few country bands that possess the pop flair and down-home charm needed to ignite a party the way Florida Georgia Line did Monday, Sept. 15, at the Washington State Fair.More

Mainstream country music has always excelled at getting the party started, which is probably why Florida Georgia Line (FGL) has found such an eager audience.More
Also featuring: the kick-off of country music at the Washington State Fair, an angst-ridden rock concert in the Gorge and the return of one of Seattle hip-hop’s most-beloved groups.More
For the rest of their careers, Florida Georgia Line frontmen Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley will chase the success they found in 2013: four No. 1 singles, a spot in the Macy’s Day Parade and a headlining tour that took them to more than 200 cities.
They stamped an exclamation mark on their career-changing year with a sold-out show at the ShoWare Center in Kent that ended the 2013 segment of Florida Georgia Line’s “Here’s to the Good Times” tour.More
Florida Georgia Line is unapologetically populist in its approach to country music. Perhaps that’s why the duo — Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard, who hail from Florida and Georgia, respectively — has seen each of its first four singles hit No. 1.
The success of the omnipresent summer jam “Cruise” and “Get Your Shine On,” which went platinum, is proof that Florida Georgia Line is ready to step away from opening for more established acts to try headlining, which it’s doing at the ShoWare Center in Kent Saturday. It’s the last date of the 2013 portion of the band’s “Here’s to the Good Times” tour.
FGL’s debut album, “Here’s to the Good Times,” was produced by Nickelback studio guy Joey Moi and much like Moi’s work with Nickelback, he allows the band to hit only one emotional note. Fortunately, Moi decided to infuse “Here’s to the Good Times” with a breezy air of fun instead of the blunt drudgery that plagues Nickelback. It’s a reminder that some of the best country albums are also great party albums.
