Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise” Breaks Billboard Chart Record

Duo’s debut is now longest-running country No. 1.

Well, here's a little bit of country music history being made. Florida Georgia Line's enduring debut single, "Cruise," has toppled a 69-year Billboard Hot Country Songs record to be the chart's longest-running No. 1 song.

With 22 weeks in the chart's top slot, "Cruise" (buoyed by the recent Nelly remix) bested the previous record, a 21-week three-way tie between Webb Pierce’s "In the Jailhouse Now" (1955), Hank Snow’s "I'm Moving On" (1950–51) and Eddy Arnold’s "I'll Hold You in My Heart (Till I Can Hold You in My Arms)" (1947–48).

Additionally the five-times-platinum song by Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley is the third-best-selling country digital single to date, according to SoundScan. Currently the guys are supporting Luke Bryan's Dirt Road Diaries Tour and preparing to launch their own headlining Here's to the Good Times Tour in the fall.
