Watch Florida Georgia Line and Backstreet Boys honor their wives in new video


Florida Georgia Line already announced that their summer “Smooth Tour” will feature early ‘00s hitmaker and Band Aid-sporter Nelly (also, newcomer Chris Lane).

But the “Hot in Herre” rapper isn’t the only unlikely collaboration for FGL’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard.

The country duo teamed with the Backstreet Boys for the song “God, Your Mama and Me” for their latest album, “Dig Your Roots” – a pairing that stemmed from their friendship with BSB Nick Carter – and now they’ve released a buzzy video to accompany the midtempo chugger.

Entertainment Weekly has some behind-the-scenes photos from the video, which features both groups singing around a campfire on Santa Rosa Beach, Fla., along with edited footage of the guys doing something sweet for their wives (they were all given GoPros and instructed to record their special actions).

Check out the video below. And you can check out FGL with Nelly and Lane when they wrap their tour Oct. 20-21 at Verizon Amphitheatre. Tickets are available now as part of the annual Country Megaticket package.

The Backstreet Boys launch their new Las Vegas residency at The Axis at Planet Hollywood on March 1.
