Florida Georgia Line made a big announcement on Friday Live from Central Park in New York City as they headlined ABC’s Good Morning America Summer Concert Series and revealed details about their forthcoming album. Their new album will be called Anything Goes and is slated for release on October 14. Brian Kelley said, "Tyler and I’ve been really blessed to have an amazing team – an extended family – who push us continually to be better and think differently. Whether we’re home or out on the road, we’re doing things the FGL way and it feels like with our recording, our writing, our lives … ANYTHING GOES … and we can’t wait to see where it leads next." Tyler Hubbard adds, "There have been a lot of changes in our lives over the past couple of years but we’re still the same guys from Florida and Georgia who drove from show to show in BK’s Tahoe. We’re really excited about what we’ve learned on this journey and can’t wait to give our fans new music they can crank up just as loud as the tunes they sing back to us every night. ANYTHING GOES is a natural progression of where we’re at and what we’ve learned getting here.”

Kenny Chesney played to over 40,000 fans on Saturday at his Flora-Bama show on the beach. Fans came as far away as Oregon, Ohio, South Carolina, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Arizona to hear Chesney play his only concert of 2014. Kenny said, "Man, when those people kicked in and started singing ‘Flora-Bama’ back to me, that just hit me in the heart. A year without touring takes me away from that, and those fans... whether they know it or not... inspire me. So having spent the year writing and recording that was like plugging into the source." Chesney’s 32-song set lasted two and a half hours. Mixing old favorites with some new songs. Filmed by Shaun Silva for a TV special this fall, Kenny and band took the tailgate vibe of his shows and distilled it. Bikinis, shorts, tank tops, sunburns and ball caps, the dress code was casual and the mood was great.
