Nashville, TN (September 12, 2014) CBS Sports has teamed up with superstar duo FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE for its SEC ON CBS broadcasts. The reigning CMA Vocal Duo of the Year has recorded a customized version of the song “That’s What’s Up” off a deluxe edition of their highly anticipated second album ANYTHING GOES (Republic Nashville), due out October 14. The song, along with elements from a video shoot with the duo, will be utilized as part of CBS Sports’ national coverage of Southeastern Conference football throughout the season. 

The customized song highlights the pageantry and passion around SEC football. CBS Sports also will incorporate elements from FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE’s massive tailgate party to kick off GEORGIA-FLORIDA weekend and headline the ANYTHING GOES TAILGATE 2014 concert at the Jacksonville shipyards on October 31 in its broadcast of the annual Florida vs. Georgia game, played the next day (Saturday, Nov. 1; 3:30PM, ET).

SEC ON CBS kicks off this Saturday, Sept. 13 (3:30 PM, ET) with *No. 6-ranked Georgia taking on No. 24-ranked South Carolina. Getting their game on, FGL’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard are playing Fantasy Football on this year, competing against fans who won a spot in the duo's league. 

About Florida Georgia Line: Florida Georgia Line is continuing the record-breaking momentum with GOLD-certified “Dirt,” the lead single from their highly anticipated sophomore album ANYTHING GOES, slated for release October 14 (Republic Nashville). Already dominating with a #1 debut on the Country Digital Singles chart, "Dirt" shot to #1 on both the iTunes all genre and Country charts in the US and Canada, while also sitting atop the Country chart in Australia shortly after release. Exploding on to Country radio, Top 10-and-climbing "Dirt" earned the highest one-week add total in Country Aircheck history, in addition to rave reviews from critics nationwide embracing FGL's fresh sound. Inspired by the emotionally fueled song, the superstar duo recently launched the Dirt Campaign, partnering with the fundraising platform Omaze to benefit Habitat for Humanity, a global nonprofit, which creates affordable housing for low-income families. Amassing international appeal, FGL skyrocketed across genres with four consecutive, multi-week #1 smashes – PLATINUM–certified hits “Stay,” “Get Your Shine On,” "Round Here" and MULTI-PLATINUM “Cruise,” making them the only artist in history to join Brooks & Dunn in achieving this accolade. Breaking the record for longest #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, “Cruise” has sold over 8 million downloads and is the best-selling digital Country single of all time (SoundScan). Producer Joey Moi is once again at the helm of the new music, following up FGL's 2X PLATINUM debut HERE'S TO THE GOOD TIMES, which has tallied over 17.8 million tracks sold worldwide. FGL penned over half of the tracks on the project, including the BMI Pop Award-winning "Cruise" Remix and PLATINUM-certified TEEN Choice Award winner for Choice Country Song "This Is How We Roll" featuring Luke Bryan, whose remix also features Jason Derulo. The duo, who is currently nominated for CMA Vocal Duo of the Year, has previously taken home ACA, AMA, ACM, Billboard, CMA and CMT Awards. FGL recently surprised a packed crowd of fans with a pop-up concert in Nashville as part of CMT’s new Instant Jam series, airing October 18. Currently on the road as direct support for Jason Aldean's BURN IT DOWN Tour, FGL will host "This Is How We Cruise" aboard the Norwegian Pearl in November.
