It's now time for your Buzz of Country on Today's Best Country B103!
Florida Georgia Line's brand new album, Anything Goes, debuts at Number One this week on both the all-genre Billboard 200 and Billboard Top Country Albums charts. First-week sales of the CD surpassed 197,000 copies, giving the duo their first debut at Number One on the Billboard 200 chart.
"It's just a continuation of our first album. You know, it's a natural progression, I think. You know, we've tried to step up our game. We've tried to become better singers, better songwriters, and on all levels of what we do we've been trying to get better and better and it's just unbelievable getting back in the studio and picking the best songs that we can possibly pick and getting in there and getting to bring those songs to life, so I think it's a natural progression. I think we've stepped out of the boundaries, our boundaries, just a little bit further and our comfort zone a little bit further, but at the same time it's still got the FGL sound, it's still got the same feel and we're real excited about it."
Florida Georgia Line will kick off their first major headlining Anything Goes tour next year with tickets to their stop in Lincoln going on sale today!
Jason Aldean will pair up with one of his musical heroes, Bob Seger, for the next installment of CMT Crossroads. The show will be taped before an invitation-only audience next week in Franklin, Tennessee.
CMT Crossroads: Bob Seger And Jason Aldean will premiere on Black Friday, November 28th, at 10 p.m. ET on CMT.
Aldean just released his new album, Old Boots, New Dirt, which debuted at Number One on the Billboard 200 and Billboard Country Albums charts.
Brad Paisley only writes one kind of song, and that's the one that puts a mental picture in your mind. He tells us:
"I write very visually. My idea of country music is always about the pictures it paints for you. I don't like songs that don't give me images in my mind - in country music, that is. Even in pop music. You think about great pop songs that you love, sometimes you don't always know what they mean, but there's some great words in there. 'Hotel California' is a good example. I don't know totally what that's about, but you know, 'On a dark desert highway, cool . . .,' you know. Y see everything they're saying."
Brad's latest single, "Perfect Storm," is his latest example of visual music. The video was created in part by submissions from fans.
That's your Buzz of Country for Today, tune in Same Time - Same Place tomorrow for your daily dirt from Nashville. For B103, I'm Clint Leifeld.
