The country duo and their backing band breezed through the mid-tempo ode to all of life’s simple pleasures, with Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley coming together on the chorus to sing in harmony: “Long live all the small towners, sunup to sundowners/That old-school Haggard and Hank/Long live longneck bottles and wide-open throttles/And old dirt roads with no name.”
Florida Georgia Line released “Long Live” as a single last September. It eventually appeared on the group’s new album, Life Rolls On, which arrived earlier this month, February 12th. Hubbard and Kelley produced the album with Corey Crowder, making it their first LP without longtime producer Joey Moi. The record marks FGL’s first full-length album since 2019’s Can’t Say I Ain’t Country, while it also follows their 2020 EP, 6-Pack.
Both Hubbard and Kelley have said they’re also working on solo projects (though they emphasized that FGL aren’t breaking up). Hubbard recently stepped out to join Tim McGraw on McGraw’s new single, “Undivided.” The pair gave the live debut of the song, which calls for compassion and understanding, during the Celebrating America inauguration concert for President Biden last month.
