Florida Georgia Line kicked off its 2016 Dig Your Roots Tour on May 12. With more than 50 tour stops running through October, the duo is hoping to give their fans a concert that will rock both sonically and visually. “I think visually we’re doin’ some things different this year,” says FGL’s Brian Kelley. “We’re gonna have, not a completely different vibe, but just adding more icing on the cake, if you will.”
Adding to that icing on the tour will be opening acts Cole Swindell, The Cadillac Three and newcomer Kane Brown. FGL’s Tyler Hubbard is confident that these guys will each bring something special to the show. “I think the most important thing, too, is with every artist there’s a different brand, there’s a different sound, there’s a whole different vibe. From Kane to Cadillac Three to Cole to us, it goes from one extreme to the next.”
“Some more of our roots will be added to the show,” reveals Brian, without giving too much of the show away. “Once you show up, you’ll kinda get it, and throughout the show the set will evolve. It’s more rootsy.”
“I think overall as a show, it’ll be a great, great tour,” adds Tyler. “Somethin’ that people will show up at seven when the doors open and Kane hits the stage and won’t leave until ‘Cruise’ is finished, and I think that’s gonna be the coolest part of it, just seein’ all sorts of different fans at one place ready to rock.”
