FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE and superstar collaborators BACKSTREET BOYS have premiered the tender new video for their current chart-rising single “God, Your Mama, And Me” on Big Machine TV and across all digital platforms. Watch now: smarturl.it/GYMAMpremiere.
Filmed on the stunning white sand of Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, the video features unique behind-the-scenes looks into the real-life romance of each artist. Director TK McKamy (“H.O.L.Y.,” “May We All”) captures adoring clips that pair perfectly with the tune’s faithful, passionate message, co-written by Josh Kear, Hillary Lindsey and Gordie Sampson. Entertainment Weekly offered a sneak peek at the music video shoot to deliver fans a first-look photo feature, revealing a musical partnership between two era-defining acts that has grown into a full-scale friendship.
“We’ve become friends with them [Backstreet Boys] at this point,” said FGL’s Tyler Hubbard to Entertainment Weekly. “And it’s become more and more exciting with everything that we do together.” BSB’s Kevin Richardson says it’s a two-way street. “We’re buds now,” he says. “It’s just a real positive vibe. It’s been a pleasure and an honor to do this song with them.”
“God, Your Mama, And Me” is the third single from FGL’s third #1 album, DIG YOUR ROOTS, which has already taken singles “H.O.L.Y.” and “May We All” (featuring Tim McGraw) to chart-topping status.
Meanwhile, it was revealed last week that FGL has earned five nominations – Entertainer of the Year, Album of the Year (DIG YOUR ROOTS), Single of the Year (“H.O.L.Y.”), Vocal Duo of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year (“May We All”) – at the upcoming 52nd ACM Awards. Taking place for the first time in Las Vegas’ new T-Mobile Arena, the star-studded event will air live April 2 on CBS at 8 p.m. ET. The duo has previously won six ACM Awards.
FGL’s electrifying 2017 DIG YOUR ROOTS TOUR is on the road now, featuring Dustin Lynch and Chris Lane, plus Seth Ennis, Ryan Follese and Morgan Wallen on select dates. More than 25 shows have already been revealed through May 6. The tour will crisscross North America with stops from Houston, Texas, to Quebec, Canada, and everywhere in between.
