The Florida Georgia Line duo recently posted a picture to social media this afternoon teasing the upcoming CMA “Country Christmas” Special.
This year’s show is airing on ABC tonight at 9 p.m. EST. By tuning in, fans will also be able to hear “Lit This Year,” a new original song by Florida Georgia Line. In the song, the country duo sings about spiking the eggnog (using their own whiskey brand in the process). Additionally, they mention enjoying some “homegrown mistletoe.”
Florida Georgia Line is the owner of their own whiskey, Old Camp. Their smooth whiskey was created by the duo, Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard. They consider it the ultimate drink to kick-start the party.
The FGL official Twitter account sent a tweet earlier this afternoon asking if fans were ready for the CMA special tonight. In the tweet, the country duo includes a photo of them sharing their signature whiskey.
Florida Georgia Line launched their Old Camp Whiskey back in August of 2016. The superstar dynamic duo was inspired to make their first whiskey by their own “camp.” Those people include a crew of longtime musicians, managers, technicians, and friends. It was they who ultimately led to the creation of Old Camp Whiskey.
