The Backstreet Boys Join Florida Georgia Line For Thrilling ACM Awards Performance


One of the most anticipated and controversial performances of Sunday’s ACM Awards was the collaboration between Florida Georgia Line and pop super group The Backstreet Boys. 

News of the collaboration broke last week causing an uproar from die-hard country music fans.

Despite the backlash, the performance proved to be a highlight of the awards show. 

Florida Georgia Line has been extremely vocal about the influence The Backstreet Boys have had on their career and how much they respect the award winning boy band. 

“These guys are professionals, they take their job really serious and they also take their relationships with each other really serious,” says Hubbard. “I would imagine it’s not always easy. Those guys are brothers, they’re really, really tight through the ups and downs. It’s really cool to see.”

The affection is mutual so it was no surprise that Florida Georgia Line would ask the Backstreet Boys to join them for “God, Your Mama and Me” for their latest album, Dig Your Roots

In addition to their performance of “God, Your Mama and Me”, the men performed the Backstreet Boys’ hit song “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back).” The crowd was on their feet throughout the thrilling performance with some of country music’s biggest stars singing and dancing along.
