There is no waiting until Sunday night to find out who will receive the ACM for Duo of the Year

The Academy shared details of the three-peat win with the Florida Georgia Line team Friday night at a No. 1 party being held in Las Vegas.

Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley flew their songwriters along with their friends and family to the event. 

The duo are celebrating the success of their latest album, "Anything Goes" and the five hit singles that came from the project.

Those singles include “Dirt,” “Sun Daze,” “Sippin’ on Fire,” “Anything Goes” and “Confession". 

“The past year has been such an incredible ride. Each time we release a single we can only pray that people are going to respond positively and thankfully they did,” Tyler Hubbard said. “We have the best fans in the world, by far.”

FGL also received recognition for having "Cruise" become the first country single to ever reach certified diamond status. 

"We are blown away and couldn’t be more honored by these milestone moments," Brian Kelley said. "Our fans keep us doing what we do and made this possible."

Kelley and Hubbard will also perform during the ACM Awards Sunday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

This is a developing story. Stay tuned for more details
