Florida Georgia Line’s ‘Can’t Hide Red’ With Jason Aldean Is ‘Every Redneck’s Anthem’ [Listen]
FGL members Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley turned to their YouTube channel to offer fans an inside look at the track.
"'Can't Hide Red' is every redneck's anthem. We had so much fun recording that one. It kind of started off as a joke song to be honest, and then it turned into a rocker we couldn't not put on this album," Hubbard says.
"Then it turned into an epic feature with our buddy Jason Aldean," he adds. "We just had to call up one of our favorite redneck buddies and try to get him on the song. He heard it and was pumped about it and it's the perfect fit. He crushed this song, and it wouldn't be the same without him on it. For everybody out there, crank this up, and don't be ashamed when you can't hide red."
Florida Georgia Line released Can't Say I Ain't Country on Friday (Feb. 15). They dropped "Simple" as the lead single in advance of the project, scoring a No. 1 hit. Other key tracks include "Colorado" and "People Are Different," as well as a collaboration with Jason Derulo titled "Women." The album's second radio single is "Talk You Out of It."
Can't Say I Ain't Country is all over the map musically, which Hubbard says is by design.
“When we're producing a song out, we're not really catering to a genre,” Hubbard tells Taste of Country in an exclusive interview. "I think at this point, we just want to make great music. You can call it whatever you want to at this point."
FGL are set to hit the road on their Can't Say I Ain't Country Tour in June.
