Sam Hunt Bonding with Tour Mates Kip Moore and Charlie Worsham on Up in Smoke Tour

Image Courtesy McClister/UMGSam Hunt plays Nashville's Ryman Auditorium Friday night opening for Kip Moore on the CMT on Tour: Up in Smoke trek. Charlie Worsham is also on the bill, and Sam has had a blast getting to know those guys in the past few weeks.

Sam tells ABC News Radio, "We all get along so well. They have good people on their team, and we have good people on our team. I think good people just get along together."

A lot of that bonding has taken place at the pre-show meals backstage.

Says Sam, "There's a lot of time spent during the afternoon before the actual show happens that we get to hang out."

Kip and his team usually find a place to work out before shows, and Sam is hoping some of that commitment to fitness rubs off on him soon.

"I go through phases," Sam admits. "I'll do two or three weeks where I’m pretty good, and then I lose my discipline and I fall off for a little while and then I get inspired to go back. So, I'm back and forth."

Sam's debut album, Montevallo, is due out November 27 featuring his hit single, "Leave the Night On."

Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard Opens Up About His Newfound Love for Yoga

Image Courtesy Republic NashvilleFlorida Georgia Line has had a jam-packed week in New York City promoting their just-released album, Anything Goes. While the duo is having a blast sharing their new music with fans, the crazy schedule can get stressful. That's why FGL's Tyler Hubbard will probably break out his yoga mat at some point this weekend to blow off some steam.

Tyler and his fiancée, Hayley, often post photographs on Instagram of their yoga practices, which is something Tyler would've never done before they got together.

He tells ABC News Radio, "If you'd have told me a couple years ago I'd be doing yoga, I'd would have laughed at you, but it's something I enjoy, and it's definitely a good time to unwind and just let loose a little bit."

Practicing yoga helps Tyler with some back issues while giving him an extra boost of energy to perform for his fans.

"It keeps us in shape," Tyler explains. "I like to enjoy life to the fullest, man. You gotta feel good, so it helps out with that, for sure."

Be sure and catch Florida Georgia Line performing on CMT Instant Jam Friday night at 10 ET.
