For the Reporter

The Washington State Fair welcomes country duo Florida Georgia Line with special guest Morgan Wallen on Sept. 2, part of the Columbia Bank Concert Series.

Florida Georgia Line’s platinum-certified musical evolution, Dig Your Roots, propelled the history-making duo to number one on the all-genre Billboard Artist 100 and Country Albums charts. Continuing the momentum, the album has delivered three consecutive No. 1 smashes – the 3X platinum-certified lead single “H.O.L.Y.” (No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for 18 straight weeks), platinum-certified hits “May We All” (featuring Tim McGraw) and “God, Your Mama, And Me” (featuring Backstreet Boys).

Since its breakout in 2012, FGL has earned prestigious honors from the AMA, ACM Awards, CMA Awards, Billboard Music Awards and CMT Music Awards. The duo’s previous BMLG Records releases – two times platinum debut Here’s To The Good Times and platinum Anything Goes – have attributed to sales surpassing 30 million tracks and more than 4.2 million albums worldwide.
