Do you remember hearing about a fire happening on the Universal Studios backlot in Hollywood back in 2008? Here is a link to the New York Times article for those who need a refresher: http://tinyurl.com/y2jglcnc

“According to a new report from the New York Times, a fire that swept the Universal Studios backlot in Hollywood, Calif., in 2008 resulted in massive damage that wasn’t publically reported, including losses of irreplaceable master tapes from some of country’s biggest names. Universal claimed after the fire in 2008 that the damage was “relatively minor.”  The company reported that a vault of video and television media was destroyed, along with a portion of the studio tour” (Taste of Country, “LORETTA LYNN, MERLE HAGGARD + MORE CLASSIC COUNTRY RECORDINGS DESTROYED IN UNIVERSAL FIRE” http://tinyurl.com/yxqkgj7y)

“According to the original report, Universal initially claimed the damage was “relatively minor,” but internal documents published by the Times dispute that account. “The West Coast Vault perished, in its entirety. Lost in the fire was, undoubtedly, a huge musical heritage,” a memo written in March of 2009 states” (Taste of Country, “REBA MCENTIRE, GEORGE STRAIT REPORTEDLY AMONG 800+ ARTISTS WHO LOST MASTERS IN UNIVERSAL FIRE” http://tinyurl.com/yxg5zepb)

We can only imagine how these artists must feel. We’re sure it was hard enough to hear about the fire in general. But finding out over 10 years later that your masters were part of the casualty must feel like a punch to the stomach!

“The cause of the fire is now believed to have been a blowtorch used by workmen to repair the chapel roof on New England Street around 3am. They reportedly followed policy of standing watch for an hour (to spot any fire after the work) then went for a break. The fire was reported at 4.43am by a security guard. The Universal City Fire crew were on scene four minutes later, by which time a whole block of facades was engulfed” (TheStudioTour.com, “2008 Fire” http://tinyurl.com/y5w2jl64)

Can you believe there are people on this earth who have never heard Country Music, or seen a Country Music video? I know what you’re thinking… Sad life! Not everyone is born lucky.

Buzzfeed released a new video of people watching Country Music videos for the first time. See how they react to Dierks Bentley, Florida-Georgia Line, and Miranda Lambert.

Florida Georgia Line are having the time of their lives. They just garnered their first #1 album with Anything Goes which sold more than 197,000 copies in its first week.

This week they released a new lyric video Sun Daze putting a whole new meaning behind “Sunday Funday.”

After so much hard work and success, we’re happy to see these guys having a good time.

Florida Georgia Line  “Sun Daze” Lyrics

I’m gonna wear my flip-flops and
I’m gonna play some flip-cup and
Rock a little bit of hip-hop and Haggard and Jagger
And throw a 20 on the corn hole game
If I’m lucky yeah I might get laid
The way that it’s going, the keg gon’ be floating

All I wanna do today is wear my favorite shades and get stoned
Work a little less, play a little more
That’s what this day is for
And all I wanna do is lace my J’s and lace some Jack in my Coke
Work on my laid back, ain’t nothin’ wrong
With gettin’ my sun daze on, gettin’ my sun daze on

Girl you know you’re the life of my party
You can stay and keep sippin’ Bacardi
Stir it up as we turn on some Marley
If you want you can get on Harley
I sit you up on a kitchen sink
Stick the pink umbrella in your drink
The way that we’re feeling we gone by this evening

All I wanna do today is wear my favorite shades and get stoned
Work a little less, play a little more
That’s what this day is for
And all I wanna do is lace my J’s and lace some Jack in my Coke
Work on my laid back, ain’t nothin’ wrong
With gettin’ my sun daze on, gettin’ my sun daze on

All I wanna do today is wear my favorite shades and get stoned
Work a little less, play a little more
That’s what this day is for
And all I wanna do is lace my J’s and lace some Jack in my Coke
Work on my laid back, ain’t nothin’ wrong

With gettin’ my sun daze on, gettin’ my sun daze on

Jason Aldean scored it big with “Burnin’ It Down.” The song has gone 1 for the 12th time and is featured on his new album, Old Boots, New Dirt.

But did you know this song was actually cowritten by Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard? It was supposed to be a hit for the group, but they couldn’t release it for a another year.

Tyler Hubbard told ABC News Radio “The timing was tough on it. We were listening to it one day, and I think it was B.K. that said, ‘Hey dude, I think Jason would kill this song. We should try to give it to him, and at least let him hear it.’

And the next thing they knew, he was cutting it.

The duo praised Jason for his take on the song, and have since seen tremendous success on their own with the chart topping hit “Dirt” and latest single, “Sun Daze.”

They are currently special guests on Aldean’s Burn It Down Tour.

Florida Georgia Line rocked it out on the Today Show this morning performing their #1 hit “Dirt.”

Before kicking off the show, the duo talked about the two most important things in their lives, their fiancés and their dogs, along with their undeniable longtime friendship.

“We met each other in college and kind of hit it off and became best friends,” said Tyler Hubbard.

Congrats boys! With a friendship like that it’s no wonder they’ve come so far. Watch their live performance and full interview below.
