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 just kicked of their Rewind Tour in support of their new album, Rewind. While fans can expect to hear some of their favorite hits by the band, they should also be prepared to hear a lot of new tunes as well. “Let’s put it this way,” Gary LeVox said. “There’s gonna be more new music in this show than we’ve ever had in previous tours. So, there’s gonna be quite a few.” Jay DeMarcus agreed, adding, “There are gonna be some moments in this show that fans have never seen before from us.” 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

Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts and Brantley Gilbert both credit their mothers with instilling their strong faith. Jay can’t remember a time when his mother didn’t have him in church.

“My mom took me to church from my earliest memories,” he said. “I’m grateful to have had that foundation laid early, and it’s just part of who I am. I’m not a perfect human being by any stretch of the imagination, but there is always this little voice inside of me that keeps me where I know I need to be.” Continue Reading
