Florida Georgia Line to Perform at 2016 DICK’S Sporting Goods Open
Three Time CMA Award Winning Country Duo Live in Concert on July 8th 


(VESTAL, NY)- Broome County Community Charities, Inc. is proud to announce the entertainment for the 10th Anniversary of the DICK’S Sporting Goods Open.  DICK’S Sporting Goods will host three-time CMA Award Winning Country Duo, Florida Georgia Line as a part of their Dig Your Roots Tour.  The concert, presented in part by Visions Federal Credit Union, will take place greenside following the completion of the First Round of Play on Friday, July 8th on the McIntosh Soundstage. 


In 2015 they took home both Favorite Country Duo and Favorite Country Album at the American Music Awards.  Florida Georgia Line was named Billboard’s 2015 Airplay Artist of the Year by surpassing artists such as Luke Bryant, Carrie Underwood, and Kenny Chesney to gain the # 1 spot on Billboard’s Country Chart. 

The Award Winning Duo, currently nominated for Favorite Country Duo at the ACM Awards, graced the charts in 2015 with three #1 hits, including their writing collaborations on Cole Swindell‘s “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight,” Jason Aldean‘s “Burnin’ It Down” and their own “Sun Daze.”  This accomplishment earned them the CMA Triple Paly Award, recognizing Florida Georgia Line as both songwriters and performers.


“We are also proud to announce a new partnership with Visions Federal Credit Union, as they join DICK’S Sporting Goods in sponsoring our 10th Anniversary Concert,” says Tournament Director John Karedes.  “Their partnership with DICK’S Sporting Goods will once again enable us to bring a premiere artist to the area.”
