In this lesson, Trent Swartzentruber teaches you how to play “Cruise” by Florida Georgia Line. 
This song was originally released in August of 2012, and debuted at number 54 on the US Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. By December of that year, it had reached number one, making it the fastest rising debut single since Heartland’s first single in 2006. It stayed at number 1 for 3 weeks, which is huge for a brand new act.
The band is comprised of Brian Kelley, from Ormond Beach, FL, and Tyler Hubbard, from Monroe, GA, thus the idea behind the name, “Florida Georgia Line.” The two met in Nashville Tennessee while attending Belmont University, and signed to Big Loud Mountain in 2011.

Trent plays a Gibson Acoustic Hummingbird and Gibson Custom Les Paul R7 Goldtop in the lesson.
