As Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley shares, the duo’s latest single “Smooth” is a bit reminiscent of a 1980’s hit by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band:

“We wrote that late in the fall out at Tyler’s farm with Nicole Clawson and George Schmidt, one of our good buddies.  And we’ve written with Nicole many times and it was our first time just us four and it was a beautiful kind of chilly day, and I remember I had told Jordan to make kind of a modern day ‘Fishin’ in the Dark’ track and he showed up with that track and Nicole had the title for ‘Smooth’. I remember that and I remember Tyler came in with that hook on the chorus, ‘Good Lord Almighty’. And that kind of got us going down the chorus. We just wrote real hard that day and had a lot of fun. It’s something that it’s a little swampy it’s a little woodsy and it’s right where we’re at (fun to play live) and it’s really fun to play live.”
