“Pushing conventional boundaries and instigating cultural shifts is something that has always been core to Mountain Dew,” said Greg Lyons, Vice President of Marketing, Mountain Dew. “Florida Georgia Line’s unique sound has progressed country music and transcended traditional country music audiences since first hitting the scene. We are looking forward to being on the ANYTHING GOES TOUR with the duo and to continuing to share their talent with DEW Nation.”

Florida Georgia Line proved to be unstoppable in 2014 with their GOLD-certified sophomore album ANYTHING GOES (Republic Nashville) catapulting to a #1 debut on the all-genre Billboard 200 and Billboard Top Country Albums charts upon release. Continuing the momentum with their latest Top 10-and-climbing single “Sun Daze” and PLATINUM, #1 smash “Dirt,” FGL racked up 13 industry awards throughout 2014 and kicked off 2015 with a bang – an epic, live performance on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.
