Following the release of Grammy-winning duo The Chainsmokers’ debut album, Memories…Do Not Open, electronic music went country with the inclusion of a track titled “Last Day Alive,” featuring the vocal stylings of none other than Florida Georgia Line.
When FGL’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley were approached by Alex Pall and Drew Taggart of The Chainsmokers shortly after the country crooners had described working with the duo as a “dream collaboration,” the country music duo felt it was a sign that they were on the right track in their careers.
“I’m honored that they would have us,” said Kelley. “It really did feel like an FGL Chainsmokers collaboration, and that’s what we’re all about when it happens organically like that.”
“We’re taking personal pride in showing them Nashville starting here at the FGL House, and I don’t know where we’re going to end the night,” said Hubbard to CMT. [But] it’s going to be awesome.”
The country music duo is notorious for their unlikely collaborations, teaming up in the past with the rapper Nelly for their 2012 smash hit “Cruise” as well as their more recent collaboration with the Backstreet Boys for their tender country ballad “God, Your Mama, and Me.”
