Florida Georgia Line is seeing big returns from their big night at the CMT Music Awards.  Billboard.com says of the duo's hit "Cruise" has climbed to number two on the Digital Songs chart with 225-thousand downloads last week, a 15-percent increase over the previous week.  It's also the song's second-best sales week to date. 

The best sales week came with the release of the "Cruise" remake featuring Nelly, which logged 248-thousand downloads in the first week of April.  Meanwhile, "Cruise" has now surpassed the four-million mark in sales, becoming the fifth country song to reach the milestone.  Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" leads the list with six-point-one-million downloads.  Taylor Swift's "Love Story" ranks second with five-point-six-million, and her hit "You Belong With Me" is fourth with four-point-three-million downloads.  The Band Perry's "If I Die Young" is third on the list with four-point-six-million-downloads. 

Florida Georgia Line was a two-time winner at last week's CMT Music Awards, taking buckles for Duo Video of the Year and Breakthrough Video of the Year with "Cruise."  They also closed the ceremony with a performance of the song with Nelly.
