Florida Georgia Line Knows They’re Lucky to Steer Clear of Onstage Injuries

Image Courtesy BBMA/ABC/Dick Clark ProductionsFlorida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley never stand still during their energetic live shows, so it's impressive they haven't taken any major spills, or even fallen off the stage, like some of their fellow country stars.

Tyler says, "We’ve both left bleeding a couple times, really definitely sweatin’. We’ve had a couple falls. Nothing too major. No ambulance, no stretcher."

While they're cautious about safety onstage, FGL likes leaving room of spontaneity in their live shows.

"As much as we’re runnin’ around the stage, you never know what’s gonna happen," Tyler adds. "But, for the most part, man we’ve been super lucky.”

Florida Georgia Line just finished a run of shows in Europe. They headline the Houston Rodeo Wednesday night.

Eric Church Throws Innuendo Out the Window with “Like a Wrecking Ball”

Image Courtesy Jon Peets/Capitol NashvilleLately, a lot of guys in country music have been singing about the bonfires and whiskey drinks that go into flirting with a girl, but few of them have actually addressed the goal of all that flirting -- sex. Eric Church is addressing that topic head-on with his new single, "Like a Wrecking Ball."

He says, "It’s about not being home to see your wife or girl for a long time, and thinking about that, preparing for that, executing that. It has nothing to do with anything else."

Eric maintains he's always made music geared towards adults, so he doesn't see a problem with singing directly about making love.

"I hate innuendo," Eric explains. "I don’t like where people get cute. I’m not 12. I don’t need people to disguise what we’re talking about. I think we can get so cute with stuff like that. Al Green didn’t get cute. Conway Twitty didn’t get cute."

"Like a Wrecking Ball" is the latest single from Eric's platinum-selling album, The Outsiders.
