Backstreet Boys Appearing On New Florida Georgia Line Album

Now we know why Florida Georgia Line has been singing some Backstreet Boys songs during the encore "mixtape" of shows on its current Dig Your Roots Tour.

Turns out Backstreet Boys will be special guests on FGL's third album Dig Your Roots, which is due out August 26. Backstreet's Nick Carter recently posted a photo from the sessions on Instagram with the message, "In the studio with my @backstreetboys recording a song for @flagaline new album."
