Rascal Flatts’ Joe Don Rooney and his wife, Tiffany, like to ring in a new year with a trip. “For years, Tiffany and I have been able to go on a little vaca’ together and share New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day together somewhere special,” Rooney said, vowing to keep that tradition going “until the kids get quite a bit older and can stay up that late.”

“It’s important, I think, for a couple to find the time to spend together when they can, especially in this crazy business when you travel so much,” he added..

For The Band Perry, even though the family band spends much of the year together, it is still a must that they celebrate New Year’s Eve as a family, as well.

Rascal Flatts

Rascal Flatts has canceled three more shows due to Gary LeVox’ illness, including shows in Idaho, Washington and British Columbia scheduled for August 7, 8, and 9. The trio previously canceled a show in Oklahoma City last month.

“It is incredibly difficult to make the decision to cancel shows and disappoint our loyal fans who have been so good to us over the years,” Jay DeMarcus said. “The schedule of shows this past weekend, coupled with media days in New York City, have left him without a voice. We promise to return as soon as we can and give our fans the best show possible!” Continue Reading

Summer officially kicks off on Saturday and while the guys of Rascal Flatts will be spending part of it out on the road, headlining their Rewind Tour, they each have favorite summertime activities they are looking forward to.

Father’s Day is this Sunday and some of country music’s biggest stars also happen to have a soft spot for the women in their life – namely, their daughters. Tim McGraw has three daughters with wife Faith Hill. In a household full of women, he has learned a thing or two.

“I think that probably the biggest thing that I’m still always working on is having a house full of women is learning patience,” he said. “I’ve never been a very patient person so I think either I’m getting mellower with age or they’re teaching me patience. It’s one or the other. I’m not sure which one it is. Probably a combination of both.” Continue Reading

Rascal Flatts Releases Rewind

Rascal Flatts’ new album, Rewind, hit store shelves Tuesday. When the group sat down to choose songs for the project, they looked for tracks that moved them, that they believed in and that made them feel something. Without those factors in place, they knew their fans wouldn’t relate to their music.

“We cut songs that touch us because if they don’t touch us first, there’s no way in the world we’re going to be able to sell those songs to somebody else,” Jay DeMarcus said. “Gary is a terrible, terrible faker. If he gets in the booth and he doesn’t whole-heartedly believe in a song, he’s gonna have tough time delivering it, and that’s not to slight him as a singer, but he’s gotta feel it in his soul before he delivers it.” Continue Reading
