Everyone’s got a story of their first trip to Las Vegas, but very few can say their first time in Sin City was for the American Country Awards. Well, new country duo Florida Georgia Line are two members of that select group. The adorable twosome talked to SheKnows about their luck at the tables.
“We flew in yesterday afternoon,” Tyler Hubbard said on the red carpet before the show. “Ran around the casino acting like idiots a bit, it was a good time.”
So, did they win any money? Hubbard said he lost, but buddy Brian Kelley made a little change.
“I got lucky last night,” Kelley recalled with pride. “Our manager was sitting next to us and he kinda coached me along.”
Hopefully some of that luck will rub off on their careers — though they don’t seem to need it. The pair — who caught attention with their first number one single “Cruise” — went on their first big tour with Jake Owen over the fall.
Were they scared to tour with such a superstar? Not at all — they even played a practical joke on the new dad, complete with diapers and pacifiers.
“We had to get Jake a little bit with his new baby,” they joked. All kidding aside, they have nothing but good things to say about their tour partner.
“Him and his crew opened up everything to us,” Kelley said.
Now they’re going to take that knowledge with them when they hit the road with Luke Bryan and Thompson Square for the Dirt Road Diaries tour in 2013.
“It’s going to be awesome,” they said. “We’re going to go out there and rock out. He’s a cool dude.”
