ABC/Image Group LAFlorida Georgia Line’s fourth album is right around the corner.  Titled Can’t Say I Ain’t Country, it’ll arrive February 15.

“You can say a lot of things,” Brian Kelley tells Entertainment Tonight, explaining the title. “You can call somebody a lot of different names and have a lot of different opinions, but at the end of the day, when it comes to me and Tyler, you can’t say we ain’t country.”

Brian goes on to reveal the album will have a bit of a retro vibe, but will also feature some non-country collaborations too.

“A lot of the music is just kind of a throwback — an FGL take on kind of what we grew up on, ’90s country,” Brian adds. “It’s a well-rounded album. We got stuff we wrote and recorded just for the live show. We got some collaborations with Jason DeruloJason Aldean. So, there’s a little bit of everything.”

Look for Brian and Tyler Hubbard to follow February’s album release with a major tour, set to kick off in May.
