Florida Georgia Line is the latest to receive and ACM award after being given their trophy for Vocal Duo of the Year. Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley were given their award at a No. 1 party at Las Vegas' Delano's Skyfall Lounge where they were celebrating their top charting singles from their latest album, Anything Goes.
This is the third consecutive year that Florida Georgia Line has won Vocal Duo of the Year. This year they beat out husband-wife duo Joey+Rory as well as Brothers Osborne, Dan + Shay, and Maddie & Tae.
