Lately, country group Florida Georgia Line to ’90s boy band Backstreet Boys have been spending a lot of time together.

Whether at performances, in the studio or hanging out at backstage, the two seemingly contrasting groups seem to have formed an unlikely bond of some kind.

But, even though it seems pretty random to us, this collaboration has been in the work for quite some time.

During a recent interview with Access Hollywood, Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley talked about their relationship with the Boys. When asked about their recent collaboration on “God, Your Momma and Me,” BK revealed that his first concert was actually seeing the ’90s band back when he was in middle school.

“Our fans may not know this, but my first concert in the sixth grade at the House of Blues in Orlando, Florida was the Backstreet Boys, so uh, it’s kind of come full circle,” he said. “You know, for this third record we’ve been diggin’ our roots, influences and paying homage to what’s gotten us here. The Backstreet Boys was us just dreaming big.”

And even though it seemed random at first, the collaboration is something we’re really digging.

They also went on to talk about their CMA awards nomination and Tyler’s hiatus from social media.
