Three albums in, Florida Georgia Line carved out their own niche – part good times, part tearjerkers – but they're not staying in place. Rather, if 2016's Dig Your Roots is any indication, they're choosing to settle into a groove, sliding into their status as slowly mellowing country bros. Staring down 30, FGL still find time to have fun, but the party no longer lasts all night; it's a gentle breeze on an "Island" or a Sunday afternoon reggae sunsplash with Ziggy Marley. Such softening of the ravers puts the rest of their music in sharper relief, making it all seem sentimental. Naturally, this is a conscious effort on Florida Georgia Line's part, a reflection of their steady maturation and the realization of their natural affinity for the MOR adult contemporary of the Backstreet Boys, the former teen pop band who cameo on "God, Your Mama and Me."
