FGL Drops New Music Video

On Wednesday, December 4th, Florida Georgia Line reminded us all to “Always take time to count your blessings,” in their brand new music video for the track, “Blessings.

If you’re familiar with the duo’s 2019 album, Can’t Say I Ain’t Country, you’ll be familiar with this track. In a recent interview, FGL’s Tyler Hubbard said “We were in that place in our life of counting our blessings and being thankful and taking a second to let all the hard work soak in..  It’s funny, because we wrote that three-and-a-half years ago, and it kind of rings more true now than ever.”

The visual shows Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley’s wives and families in Florida and Nashville, along with scenes from Arizona’s Lost Dutchman State Park.
