Florida Georgia Line (Feat. Backstreet Boys), ‘God, Your Mama and Me’ [Listen]
The Backstreet Boys are officially country, if one single a country band makes. The pop group's involvement on Florida Georgia Line's "God, Your Mama and Me" smooths out an already wrinkle-free love song.
Nick Carter's and company's involvement on FGL's third single from the Dig Your Roots album is minimal, but just having their name on the song is going to make up some people's minds about this urban country hit in the making. It'd be a shock if pop stations didn't at least toy with the country duo's new song — "God, Your Mama and Me" is one of the least gritty songs Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley have released. It's surgically clean.
Florida Georgia Line return to a sonic cocktail that gave them a massive hit in "H.O.L.Y." They're the grateful, vulnerable heartthrobs, not unlike what Backstreet Boys were over a decade ago. There's a certain amount of risk in every song they release to radio, and with "God, Your Mama and Me" it's all found on the single's cover art.
Did You Know?: Josh Kear, Hillary Lindsey and Gordie Sampson wrote "God, Your Mama and Me."

Listen to Florida Georgia Line (Feat. Backstreet Boys), "God Your Mama and Me" Lyrics:
That Sunday morning choir calling, church doors open wide / That hallelujah shoot right through ya, make you feel alive / That key under the mat, you know right where it's at / It's waiting with the porch light on / Don't bother calling, no need for knocking, just come on home, come on home / My love is …
Never gonna run dry, never gonna come up empty / Now until the day I die, unconditionally / You know I'm always gonna be here for ya / No one's ever gonna love you more than / God, your mama, and me / God, your mama, and me / Unconditionally / God, your mama, and me.
Loud as shotgun, angels singing with the radio / Praying with you every mile down any dead end road / You can tell me every secret that you been keeping / I'll hold it, lock and key / Up with you all night, holding you all night, I never leave / You better believe / My love is …
Every step you take, I'll be as sure as your shadow / Every move you make, you know I'm part of you wherever you go / Baby, you know my love is …
