Tickets on sale Aug. 16 for Florida Georgia Line


Florida Georgia Line will be performing at The University of West Georgia on Oct. 23.

The University of West Georgia in Carrollton has announced that tickets for the hit country duo Florida Georgia Line concert will go on sale to the general public Aug. 16 at 10 a.m.

The concert, part of their Here’s to the Good Times tour and also featuring Colt Ford and Tyler Farr, is scheduled for Oct. 23 at the UWG Coliseum in Carrollton. Tickets start at $25 and can be purchased at the Townsend Center box office, online at, or by calling 678-839-4722. Over the past year, Florida Georgia Line has cherished the good times seeing their quadruple platinum debut single “Cruise” dominate Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart at No. 1 for 19 straight weeks, the longest stretch for any song in the past 50 years, and their aptly titled, gold-certified Republic Nashville debut Here’s to the Good Times top the Billboard country albums chart.

The breakout duo has taken home ACM and CMT awards and scored opening slots for Taylor Swift and Luke Bryan. This fall, the buzz worthy newcomers will celebrate with their fans nationwide on their first headline run. Florida Georgia Line has skyrocketed since releasing back-to-back, multi-week #1 smashes in the U.S. and Canada with the platinum-certified “Get Your Shine On” and “Cruise,” which combined with the Top 10-and-climbing (Top 40 Charts) remix featuring Nelly, has sold nearly 5 million downloads.

The record–breaking duo, comprised of Tyler Hubbard, from Monroe, Ga., and Brian Kelley from Ormond Beach, Fla., is the first in 21 years to top the country airplay charts with their first two singles, according to Billboard. The ACM New Artist of the Year and New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year winner’s current single “Round Here” is Top 20-and-rising at Country radio. 

 Garnering buzz among fans, media and several Superstars across genres – including Taylor Swift, Keith Urban and Ed Sheeran – the hot newcomers most recently scored two CMT Music Awards for Duo Video of the Year and Breakthrough Video of the Year as well as a Teen Choice Awards nomination for Choice Country Group. Colt Ford’s latest album, Declaration of Independence, was released on Colt’s own Average Joes Entertainment and debuted at #1 on Billboard’s top country albums chart. The albun included the hit, “Back,” a collaboration with Jake Owen. 

 Columbia Nashville artist Tyler Farr has redefined “Redneck Crazy” with the release of his first Top 20 single to country radio. The classically trained vocalist has earned critical acclaim for this hit single, including raves from The New York Times, Music Row, and All Access. Currently still climbing the Mediabase country and Billboard country charts, “Redneck Crazy” also continues to gain traction in the video world, with over 2 million views for the song’s video.
