Florida Georgia Line, famous for its fun loving attitude and bread noise, did just what they were supposed to do – Few fans pumped for a weekend in the country by taking out a lot of guests including Jason Derulo and Yodel Boy Mason Ramsey. It was the highlights of the night for many.
"You get into the desert and you play music and you connect with your fans and you create moments that people will talk about and think about and look back on the rest of your life. That means we want to work harder and perfect our show and make sure these moments will be epic, "says Brian Kelley, half of FGL, in an interview with The Desert Sun before their performance.
The duo, which also includes Tyler Hubbard, started his almost two-hour set of "Anything Goes" and followed up with "It's Just What We Do."  STAR SE: Celebrities we discovered during Day 1 of Stagecoach 2018

This is the third Stagecoach look for the friends who met when they attended Belmont University in Nashville 2008. They first performed at the 2013 music festival, at 02:30 in the afternoon, the same day Hubbard met his wife's back.
Their second Stagecoach appearance was a year later on the Mane scene just before headliner Luke Bryan. This year, however, the main attraction is something that they both said they relished.
"We will take out all our friends who are in town or near the city we have been singing with and trying to make a big epic night and memory and moment for all of us, none of us will forget," he said.
They first took out Morgan Wallen, whose album just came out and sang "Up Down."
They said that Bebe Rexha wanted be there to sing "Meant to Be" but be in Europe and could not be there so they asked the audience to sing their part so they could record it and send it to her.
Then they took more guests – Jake Owen and Chris Lane for "Sun Daze." Lane opened for FGL on their This is How We Roll tour.
Then they asked the audience to wave mobile phones in the air like lighters to "get your shine on".
For their encore they performed "This Is How We Roll" and took out special guest Jason Derulo as Then began singing his song "Want To Want Me." Then they exchanged the two balls for cowboy hats and Yodel Boy Mason Ramsey had joined them on stage. Yodel Boy sang "Lovesick Blues" and then followed it with his newly released single.
As expected, they completed their set of popular favorites "Cruise" released in 2012 and appeared like a game. Since then, they have become one of the most successful country musicians out there.
The wind was quite cruel, sometimes, and caused Kelley to get to his wide fuzzy hat so that it would not fly. He eventually struck out with a baseball cap.
The two currently work with their fourth album, but did not release any new material on the audience. They stuck in fan favorites such as "Round Here", "Smooth", "May We All", "Stay" and "Sippin" On Fire.

Hubbard said they are planning to release the first single of their new album in July and continue to release the song after the song on the album until it's out. "We're glad we wish we could play some new music soon enough," he said.
The two are currently what they call "off year" because they do not blow but since they have spent time in the studio and working on other initiatives, they have become very busy.
"I and BK do not like to sit still," said Hubbard. "It's far from a closed year. We really use this time to create, write and be in the studio. Working on our next album will play these festivals and make them as special as possible. "
In addition to their music, the two have started new businesses that include a restaurant with the Cruise Roof, Tree Vibez Music Publishing and their own Whiskey – Old Camp Peach Pecan Whiskey. The two even host a party at Jackalope Ranch on Friday before their appearance to reveal a limited edition patriotic red, white and blue label for their Peach Pecan Whiskey.
The duo collaborated with the USO on the limited label with some of the revenue from the patriot bottle to USO and the military, Kelley said. 19659007] "Raise awareness about USO and what they do. Just continuing to show support we are honored to be a part of what they do and to continue to support them, "continued Kelley.
So how were they both involved in selling whiskey?
"I know It sounds like a song, but we and whiskey have a story," says Kelley.
Back on the day when the two just started in Nashville, performed at hotel lobby, they were going to share a binding moment with whiskey.  "We would say a little prayer and take a whit of whiskey. We would actually drink a beer and pour some Canadian club whiskey into the beer bottle and then drink the whiskey back in the beer bottle, "Kelley." 19659028]
"It's quite amazing. As I said, we have a story."
