The boys from Florida Georgia Line are celebrating their 13th No. 1 single today as “God, Your Mama, and Me” topped both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and Mediabase chart this week.
Featuring vocals from the Backstreet Boys, “God, Your Mama, and Me” is the third single from FGL’s Dig Your Roots album to reach No. 1, following “May We All” and “H.O.L.Y.” The tune was co-written by Josh Kear, Hillary Lindsey and Gordie Sampson.
“Wow, country radio, you have made this the best Monday morning,” said Tyler Hubbard. “Finding out that ‘God, Your Mama, and Me’ went number one is surreal—really cool to be a part of Backstreet Boys’ first country number one.”
“If you told me growing up that I would share a number one song with BSB, I would have told you to get outta here,” added Brian Kelley. “Dream big, work hard, surround yourself with an amazing team and anything is possible.”
“We’re fans of each other and that’s one of the reasons why the song works so well,” said the Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter. “I’m glad it’s with these boys that we just reached number one at country radio for the first time.”
FGL is currently in the midst of their Smooth Tour 2017 with Nelly and Chris Lane, as well as Ryan Hurd, Morgan Wallen and Russell Dickerson on select dates.
