New episodes of the series begin airing on Sept. 24, which is when the "Dirt" singers will appear. FGL will amp up the party not once, but twice, so both the east and west coast timezones get in on the live action.
“Florida Georgia Line is one of the music industry’s hottest groups,” "Nashville" executive producer Dee Johnson told People. “They’ve achieved the level of stardom that we explore every week on ‘Nashville,’ so we are delighted to have them perform live on both coasts for our historic third season premiere.”
The show’s premiere will also include some other live performances by the stars of the show itself. Chris Carmack, who plays Will Lexington, and Charles Esten, who plays Deacon Claybourne, will both also have live solo performances during the Season 3 kickoff.
Of course, FGL aren’t the first true stars to appear on the smash hit TV show. Brad Paisley, Brantley Gilbert, Vince Gill, Zac Brown, Kip Moore and Chris Young have all taken the stage on "Nashville" in past seasons. However, the FGL will be the very first to play live on the show. Luke Bryan is also set to appear later in the season — he previously recorded his segment. Derek Hough from "Dancing with the Stars" will also appear this season.
"Nashville" makes its return to ABC on Sept. 24 at 10PM ET.
