Florida Georgia Line Break Taylor Swift’s Most-Added Song Record
Florida Georgia Line have a lot to be excited about lately … like the fact that despite having just been released, their new single ‘Dirt’ is already breaking records!
The song is being well-received by both country fans and country radio, and the numbers prove it. FGL’s ‘Dirt’ has become the most-added song on country radio in one week … ever! The duo earned 127 Mediabase adds in just one short week.
That number may not seem like a lot, but it is when you compare it to the pop-country crossover sensation who previously held the record. Taylor Swift was just knocked from holding the top spot by the duo. She previously held the record for her hit single ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,’ which was released in 2012 from her ‘Red’ album and gained 116 adds in its first week.
‘Dirt’ is an unusual song for Florida Georgia Line, but it’s been a welcome surprise for fans. They’ve come a long way since ‘Cruise’ hit radio waves and made them a favorite amongst country music fans who enjoy a party song. The new single relies more so on serious lyrics than catchy beats, and the ‘Dirt’ video shows a softer side of the two men.
Along with the single and video, FGL have also started their Dirt Campaign in an effort to give back. They’re trying to raise $100,000 for Habitat for Humanity. Read more about the campaign and the duo’s efforts here.
