It appears Carrie Underwood and Florida Georgia Line won’t be collaborating after all.
The superstar duo recently appeared on an episode of CMT Hot 20 Countdown and shared the status of the song they virtually pitched to Carrie Underwood earlier this year.
“No, we got turned down on that one,” Hubbard shared with host Cody Alan. “You don’t win ’em all. I guess she didn’t love it as much as we did, but that’s alright.”
Hubbard remained positive about the future of the song, however.
“I think she said it was amazing and she’d love to, but it was right around her book tour release and so she was super busy and didn’t really have time,” he shared, adding, “But who knows, who knows where it will go. Now it’s just open game.”

Florida Georgia Line initially took to Instagram to share the song with hopes of catching Underwood’s attention. “We’d love to send it to you, we don’t have your email or your phone number so we’re just going to play a little,” Hubbard shared in an Instagram clip which has since been removed.
“Alright let us know if you want it, we’re going to send it your way! Let’s go Carrie,” he said at the conclusion of the clip.
Underwood did not respond to the invitation publicly.
FGL has previously collaborated with artists such as the Backstreet Boys, Bebe Rexha and Nelly.
