Florida Georgia Line, Backstreet Boys Notch No. 1 at Country Radio
Florida Georgia Line's summer is off to a remarkable start. The country duo's latest single "God, Your Mama, and Me," a collaboration with the Backstreet Boys, has garnered the No. 1 spot at country radio.
The 13th chart topper for the duo, "God, Your Mama, and Me," marks BSB's very first hit at country radio.
"Wow. Country radio, you have made this the best Monday morning," Tyler Hubbard says upon learning the news. "Finding out that 'God, Your Mama, and Me' went No. 1 is surreal – really cool to be a part of Backstreet Boys' first Country No. 1!"
Brian Kelley shares similar excitement, saying: "If you told me growing up that I would share a No. 1 song with BSB, I would have told you to get outta here! Dream big, work hard, surround yourself with an amazing team and anything is possible."
"God, Your Mama, and Me" was written by Josh Kear, Hillary Lindsey and Gordie Sampson. Kelley shared the song with Nick Carter shortly after hearing it, and the boy band greed to assist on harmonies. It's the first time they have been part of a song distributed to country radio.
"We're fans of each other and that's one of the reasons why the song works so well,” Carter adds. "I'm glad it's with these boys that we just reached No. 1 at country radio for the first time."
The No. 1 hit won't be the last time the country and pop stars will be collaborating the Backstreet Boys are set to perform at several of Florida Georgia Line's stadium dates this summer as part of the 2017 Smooth Tour.
