Florida Georgia Line's "Cruise" is earning the country duo new recognition.  Billboard.com says the chart-topping track logged another 84,000 downloads last week to set a new record as the best-selling country digital single. 

The latest sales put the track's total downloads at 6.33 million to surpass the previous record holder, Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now."  The Lady A track now sits at number two on the list with 6.27 million downloads.  Florida Georgia Line's collaborative remix of "Cruise" with Nelly accounts for nearly 40% of the song's total sales. 

Florida Georgia Line and Lady Antebellum are the only artists with digital sales for one song topping the six-million mark.  Taylor Swift's "Love Story" ranks third with 5.66 million downloads.  She also has the number five spot on the list with "You Belong WIth Me," which has sold 4.41 million downloads. 

The Band Perry's "If I Die Young" has sold 4.74 million downloads to take fourth place.  The rankings are based on figures from Nielsen SoundScan, which began tracking digital music sales in 2003. 

Congrats to FGL!
