Florida Georgia Line & Backstreet Boys teaming up for TV special

Florida Georgia Line & Backstreet Boys teaming up for TV special

Now, the seven-man super group made up of FGL and BSB will be taking its talents to the CMT Crossroads stage where they will not only perform "God, Your Mama, And Me", but they will take on one another's career hits. Competitively, CMT ranks as the fastest growing Top 50 (non-news) channel with Women 18-49.

"Being such fans of each other, this is a really fun way for us to put our mark on our songs", the pop group's Brian Littrell added.

The two acts previously teamed up for a joint performance on the 2017 ACM Awards that married "God, Your Mama and Me" with "Everybody" - a pairing so epic that it even had Tim McGraw acting like a goofy fan. "And to be able to take our friendship - and smooth new dance moves - up a notch with this full-blown concert together is going to be epic!"

"It's insane to think how we grew up listening to this song and now are onstage performing it together", Hubbard said. Bursting with first-rate reviews of their explosive live shows, MusicRow Magazine praised, "Just in case you've forgotten, Florida Georgia Line is one of the hottest country acts alive". Hubbard said in an email interview with the Associated Press that he's most looking forward to singing their classic, "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)".

Backstreet Boys got their first hit country song this year on a collaboration with country duo Florida Georgia Line, and now the two powerhouse acts are teaming up for a CMT Crossroads episode airing August 30. The group's world tour of the same name was extended multiple times, resulting in what became its biggest tour in over a decade.

Previous episodes of CMT Crossroads featured Carrie Underwood alongside Steven Tyler, Alicia Keys with Maren Morris, Jason Derulo with Luke Bryan, John Legend with Lee Ann Womack, and Nick Jonas with Thomas Rhett.
