The Official Music Video For Georgia Line’s “Round Here.” Below is the official music video for Florida Georgia Line’s current single, “Round Here.” The song comes from their album, Here’s To The Good Times. The video has an interesting take on it, as we see both Tyler and Brian playing out their day in separate locations (Georgia and Florida). I’m sure the song will do well with radio and fans like their previous singles. It has a good beat, the type of song that you could calmly listened to driving down the road or rock out to with your friends. Watch the video for “Round Here” and tell us what you think!
