Florida Georgia Line 's Brian Kelley is quick to give a shout out to Jake Owen for his support of the duo in their early days.
Brian tells the Huffington Post , "Jake Owen has been extremely instrumental in getting us to where we are today. He took us on tour, got us more Twitter followers ... he’s been everything for us and just a great friend, great person."
FGL also counts Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean among their other country star friends.
"That's what country music is all about -- having that support, that brotherhood, that family kind of thing going on," Brian explains. "We heard about that and when we got into the mix, it’s been nothing but that. It's cool to get in touch with people through emails and just have that encouragement."
Florida Georgia Line is on the road with Jason Aldean all year long.
