Florida Georgia Line’s new single “H.O.L.Y.” strikes a whole different chord for the ACM Vocal Duo of the year. The tender and reverential love song and accompanying video are distinct departures from their massive party hits like “Cruise” and “This is How We roll.” And the song almost didn’t get cut.

Band members Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley originally passed on the song, but a couple of weeks later, both were still thinking about the passionate tune and decided to give it another shot. FGL has said that they are aiming for transparency on thir next album, and the song is a good start. H.O.L.Y. stands for “High on Loving You,” and is a poetic and heartfelt expression of both vulnerability and strength in love.

“We’re married now,”  Brian Kelley told Taste of Country. “Some things have changed and I think it’s kind of a coming of age album, if you will.  It’s a man album, I think we’ve waited a long time to make an album like this.”

Kelley added that the new album will be “[the] perfect evolution, from the first two records, of where we need to be.”

FGL will play  H.O.L.Y. during the Dig Your Roots tour, kicking off in May. Also joining the band, Cole Swindell, Cadillac Three, and Cane Brown.
