Florida Georgia Line Admits Marijuana Use: “We’re Professional Partiers”

Image Courtesy Republic NashvilleFlorida Georgia Line has more in common with country icon Willie Nelson than you might think.

In the new Billboard cover story, Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard admits they smoke marijuana after a reporter noticed a small metal pipe that smelled like weed on a counter in Tyler's tour bus.

The news shouldn't come as a shock to anyone, though. The guys' new song, "Sun Daze," contains a reference to getting stoned, and Tyler even tells Billboard, "We're professional partiers."

"Sun Daze" is included on FGL's new album, Anything Goes, due out Tuesday. Look for Florida Georgia Line's CMT Instant Jam special to premiere Friday, October 17 at 10 p.m. ET.

The Swon Brothers Perform with the PS22 Chorus in New York City

Image Courtesy Sony Music NashvilleThe Swon Brothers performed their song "Pretty Beautiful" with the PS22 Chorus in New York City last week. The track is included on the duo's self-titled debut album, due out October 14. The students spent two hours outside of regular school hours to rehearse and perform with The Swon Brothers. They also got to ask the guys questions about their journey to country stardom.

The Swon Brothers' Zach Swon says, "We’ve been on the run so much lately that it was great to have the chance to slow down for a few hours and share that pure, simple love of music through the eyes of these incredible kids.  It was just an amazing experience.”

The Swon Brothers are now climbing the country chart with their debut hit, "Later On."
