“God, Your Mama & Me” – Florida Georgia Line (Feat. Backstreet Boys)
Florida Georgia Line has officially released a third single from their Dig Your Roots album. It’s their collaboration with 90’s boy-band The Backstreet Boys called, “God, Your Mama and Me.”
Like Brian Kelley, who says his first concert was seeing The Backstreet Boys at the House of Blues in Orlando Florida in sixth grade, I grew up with the Backstreet Boys on the radio. They were one of the biggest bands of my childhood. Needless to say, when I heard my favorite country duo was collaborating with BSB, they had my full attention.
Although I’m not one for pop-country crossover collaborations, I think this is the best one since Nelly and Tim Mcgraw’s 2004 hit “Over and Over.” Actually, the more and more I listen to this song, it reminds me of something BSB would have released 15-20 years ago. So, if you can’t shake the ‘Backstreet Boys aren’t cool’ stigma, than you’re probably not going to get your fix from this song.
Sure, you still feel that FGL vibe, but you don’t feel like its something they’ve done over and over again. In fact, this is probably one of my favorite tracks from their Dig Your Roots record.
Brian Kelley tells CMT, “We’ve been digging out roots and influences, and paying homage to what’s gotten us here.”
The harmonies between the two vocal groups give this song the potential to go straight to number one; much like the first two singles off the project have. For more on the duo’s CMT interview, click here. Listen to the FGL/BSB collaboration below.
