PHOTOS: One Day on the Road with Florida Georgia Line
WAKE UP, WARM UP
Time to tune in – and up! Florida Georgia Line's Brian Kelley gets ready to rock on Tuesday morning on the New York City set of Today, where he and bandmate Tyler Hubbard performed their hits "Dirt" and "Sun Daze" from their brand new album, Anything Goes.
Almost perfect! Stylist Gina Ketchum pops in to give the guys some last-minute wardrobe adjustments before they hit the airwaves. (Fun fact: Kelley's Johnny Cash T-shirt was custom-created by Ketchum.)
BUT FIRST …
… let Hoda take a selfie! Kotb, a big country fan, snaps a shot with the guys prior to their performance.
After some prodding from Today's Tamron Hall, the guys get moving in an impromptu fashion show (on live TV!).
NOW YOU SEE ME …
THE FAME GAME
He's so fancy! Kelley, who married girlfriend Brittney Marie Cole in 2013, looks oh-so-Hollywood while heading out of New York's Rockefeller Center, en route to the band's next stop.
They're two cute! Hubbard and his new fiancée, Hayley Stommel, share a sweet moment after the guys' performance on Today.
MEET THE PRESS
Kelley (from Florida) and Hubbard (from Georgia) take a moment before another round of interviews at iHeartRadio. "We didn't really feel any pressure because our fans have been amazing these past couple years," Kelley told Today of following up on their double-platinum debut album, Here's to the Good Times. "We took all that good energy … and just got back in the studio and put it toward that."
The CMA Awards's reigning duo of the year put on their game faces for a Tuesday afternoon photo shoot. "It's fun to bring more people to the genre," Hubbard told Today of the pair's mainstream success. "We're just proud and honored to be a part of country music."
1, 2, 3 … Fireball! Before taking the iHeartRadio stage, Hubbard and Kelley take a shot of Fireball cinnamon whiskey – part of their preshow ritual. "We huddle up with our crew, our band, our team, everybody that's there that night," Kelley explained to Today. "We say a prayer, do a chant, then we have a little Fireball."
A practice run makes perfect for the pair, who weren't only performing for the iHeartRadio audience but for those listening live online and on the radio, too. "We have a philosophy," Hubbard told Today of listening to the band's music. "Turn it up or turn it off."
THAT'S A WRAP!
After an incredibly long day, the stars head off to a well-deserved dinner at N.Y.C.'s Nobu with Hubbard's fiancée, Kelley's wife and their crew in tow.
