This party song was released as the second single from Florida Georgia Line’s debut album, Here’s To The Good Times. It originally featured on the duo’s second EP, It’z Just What We Do, which was released on May 15, 2012.

FGL’s Brian Kelley explained that the duo knew it was a hit when they recorded their fall 2012 show at Joe’s Bar in Chicago. “We were going back to the studio, listening to certain things and we muted everything else and you could hear just the crowd,” said Kelley. “Everybody was singing every word to that, so we knew it was going to be the biggest song live and it’s going really well in the arenas.”

Brian Kelley recalled the writing of the song: “That was one of my personal favorite days of writing that we’ve ever had,” he said. “We wrote it about a year ago right before our publishing company’s Christmas party. Tyler came in with that hook ‘Get Your Shine On.’ He threw that out at us and Chris Tompkins and Rodney Clawson. We were off to the races. It was just-I think we wrote it in an hour and a half.”

When this song topped Billboard’s album chart, following “Cruise”‘s ascent to the summit, FGL became the first rookie duo in more than 21 years to top the tally with their first two singles. The previous twosome to achieve the feat was Brooks & Dunn who climbed to #1 with both “Brand New Man” and “My Next Broken Heart” in 1991.

Strawberry shimmer on hot lips,
Silver buckle hangin’ off her hips.
Eyes sparkle when she smiles.
Shinedown on the radio dial.
Homemade jar o’ lemon drop, take a sip.
Don’t stop girl, you know I love it when you get your shine on!
‘Cause you and me be rocking all night long!
Summer sky dripping rhinestones,
Turn your party lights on,
Baby get your shine on – shine on!

Baby get your shine on!

Silverado, candy painted,
Ray Bans, got the whole world shaded.
Chrome piece tucked in the console,
Riding high, roll up on the down low.
Feeling lucky, got hooked up with some Kentucky clear.
So slide that little sugar shaker over here…
And get your shine on!
‘Cause you and me be rocking all night long!
Summer sky drippin’ rhinestones,
Turn your party lights on,
Baby get your shine on – shine on!

Baby get your shine on!

Homemade jar o’ lemon drop take a sip.
Don’t stop girl, you know I love it when you get your shine on!
‘Cause you and me be rocking all night long!
Summer sky drippin’ rhinestones,
Turn your party lights on,
Baby get your shine on – shine on!

Baby get your shine on!

Cause you and me be rocking all night long!

Summer sky drippin’ rhinestones,
Turn your party lights on,
Baby get your shine on – shine on!

Baby get your shine on!

Baby get your shine on!

Strawberry shimmer on hot lips,
Silver buckle hanging off her hips.
Eyes sparkle when she smiles,
Shinedown on the radio dial.
Silverado, candy painted,
Ray Bans, got the whole world shaded.
Chrome piece tucked in the console.
Riding high, roll up on the down low.

Baby get your shine on!
