An almost-cancelled writing session turns into Florida Georgia Line’s 14th #1

ABC/Kelsey McNealFlorida Georgia Line grabs the 14th #1 of their career with “Meant to Be,” this week on the country airplay charts.

At the same time, their collaboration with Bebe Rexha is also top five on the pop charts, while spending a record-setting 21 weeks atop Billboard’s Hot Country Songs tally.

“From day one, this song was just meant to be,” Tyler Hubbard says of the double-platinum smash he co-wrote. “Bebe jumped in on a canceled writing session last minute and now it’s going down in history.”

“It’s been nothing but good vibes to see it take off and inspire,” Brian Kelley adds. “Its message is a positive one and why I think it’s connecting with those who hear it.”

Thursday night, FGL performs their other top-15 country hit, “Up Down,” with Morgan Wallen on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on ABC. You can tune in to catch their performance starting at 11:35 p.m. ET.

Then on Friday, the duo headlines this year’s Stagecoach festival in Indio, California.
