Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise” Breaks Record For Longest #1 On Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart

Posted by Kristina Burton on 08/05/2013
Florida Georgia Line's smash debut single “Cruise” has officially broken the record for the longest #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart in the 69-year history. Holding the summit for 22 weeks, "Cruise" shatters the four way tie for the 21-week record previously held by FGL; Webb Pierce’s "In the Jailhouse Now" (1955); Hank Snow’s "I'm Moving On" (1950-51) and Eddy Arnold’s "I'll Hold You in My Heart (Till I Can Hold You in My Arms)" (1947-48).
FGL has skyrocketed since releasing back-to-back, multi-week #1 smashes in the US and Canada with the PLATINUM “Get Your Shine On” and 5X PLATINUM-certified “Cruise,” which combined with the remix, has sold over five million downloads and is the third-best-selling Country digital song ever, according to SoundScan. The breakout duo - comprised of Tyler Hubbard (Monroe, Georgia) and Brian Kelley (Ormond Beach, Florida) - will perform their Top 15-and-climbing follow-up, “Round Here,” on Conan tonight (8/5), airing on TBS at 11:00P ET/ 10:00P CT.
