Florida Georgia Line broke a country music record this week. The duo, made up of Floridian Brian Kelley and Georgian Tyler Hubbard, just reached new heights with their hit single, "Cruise."

Originally released last August, "Cruise" has now spent a total of 22 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart, the most for any song in charted history. Billboard reports that "Cruise" beat out some major contenders for the title: Eddy Arnold's "I'll Hold You in My Heart (Till I Can Hold You in My Arms)" spent 21 weeks at No. 1 between 1947 and 1948, Hank Snow's "I'm Moving On," also at 21 weeks in 1950, and Webb Pierce's "In the Jailhouse Now," which matched the total in 1955.

Florida Georgia Line debuted "Cruise" as a part of the band's 2012 EP, "It'z Just What We Do." The track later appeared on Florida Georgia Line's debut studio album, "Here's to the Good Times," released in December. "Here's to the Good Times" was a success for the band, hitting No. 1 on the country chart, No. 4 on the Billboard 200, and going gold.
