Collaborating with the Backstreet Boys for their latest single “God, Your Mama, and Me” was an exciting moment for Florida Georgia Line‘s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley.
“This was us just dreaming big and we had a song that really made sense,” Brian recalls in a statement from their label. “‘God, Your Mama and Me’ is a big ol’ love song, and it almost sounds like a modern day Backstreet Boys, and we kind of kept saying that, and I guess putting those energies and those vibrations out in the world somehow brought Nick Carter on our bus during CMA Fest.
“And you know we were playing him that song, and a week later they’re cutting vocals on it out in L.A.. And it’s crazy,” he continues. “It sounds like a big old symphony of vocals, and that chorus hits and I think we’re kind of giddy and giggly when they come in singing.
“They were a huge part of our younger years, a big soundtrack to our lives and a lot of people’s lives, so you know just to pay homage to them, and I can’t wait to do some shows with them and have a good time.”
