Well, if you were planning on having the boys of Florida Georgia Line play at your birthday party, you better have $450,000 of chump change hanging around. That’s at least one tid bit of information that came out the current lawsuit between FGL and the organization, Country Explosion Fest, based in Utah.
All jokes aside, this situation, as reported by Billboard, sounds pretty unfortunate. In a nutshell, Country Explosion is a big music festival in Utah that has had trouble paying its bills. Florida Georgia Line received half of their fee up front, but had their check bounce when they tried to cash the post-performance half. Yikes…that’s never good.
To add salt to the wound, the festival’s owner, Darren Brady, went ahead and counter-sued Florida Georgia Line for defamation, claiming that the band was instructed to wait to cash the check so there would be sufficient funds to pay them. The fest is also claiming Florida Georgia Line breached their contract.
Wow. That sounds like a bit of a mess. Hope it gets resolved and they can all cruise on with their lives…
