On August 1, it was announced via a press statement that country duo Florida Georgia Line’s hit single “Cruise” broke the record for the longest No. 1 song in the 69-year history of the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts.
It now holds that top position for 22 weeks, thus shattering the previous 21-week record, where Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley were in a four-way tie with Webb Pierce’s “In the Jailhouse Now,” Hank Snow’s “I’m Moving On,” as well as Eddy Arnold’s “I’ll Hold You In My Heart (Till I Can Hold You in My Arms).”
Their first two singles “Cruise” and “Get Your Shine On” both peaked at No. 1 on the country charts and their newest single “Round Here” sits at No. 12 on the Billboard Hot Country Airplay charts, for the week ending August 10.
“Cruise” has been certified quintuple platinum for sales of over five million downloads and it is the third best-selling country song in digital history, according to SoundScan.
Florida Georgia Line is out on the road touring with such artists as Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and Luke Bryan.
