More than any other genre save rap, country music artists love working together. Whether through touring together, writing songs for each other, or even throwing a pal a verse or two, no group is closer than country's new gang of Georgia boys. These fellas bring a raucous brand of party rock to the Nashville scene.
Whether they're stars like Jason Aldean and Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard, or up-and-comers like Thomas Rhett, Cole Swindell and Brantley Gilbert, these Georgians are making their home state proud. But at the center of it all is Leesburg's own Luke Bryan, the co-host of April 6's ACM awards. In advance of the ceremony, explore the ties that bind these Peach State superstars.

Many Florida Georgia Line fans may not have even realized Brian Kelley had a serious girlfriend, let alone one that he was secretly planning to wed.
Well, the cat's out of the bag now – the singer, 28, married Brittney Marie Cole, 23, on Monday in an outdoor ceremony at Kelley's Nashville home, the couple confirm to PEOPLE exclusively.
"The whole process has been non-traditional," Kelley tells PEOPLE of the surprise nuptials. "There was no official proposal or exchanging of rings. We had just fallen in love, and I knew I couldn't live without her. It sounds like a terrible cheesy movie, but when you know, you know!"
