Rascal Flatts Ready For The ACM’s, Skeet Shooting And New Albums In Vegas


Rascal Flatts will be in Las Vegas this week for Sunday night’s 47th Academy of Country Music Awards, which the trio will be performing on and are nominated for Vocal Group of the YearGary LeVox says, “I think it’s great for country music too to take it over there in a gambling town.”

Gary says he is ready for more than the ACM’s.

The release of Rascal Flatts’eighth studio album, Changed, is due out on April 3. The trio’s Gary LeVox tells Billboard regarding the CD’s lead single, “Banjo,” that “We’re just coming off of two ballads. So we really wanted to [come ] firing out of the gates with something that we thought was a great representation of the album, something fresh and uptempo.” LeVox adds that the CD has more up-tempo songs than previous albums but that, lyrically, it really reflects where they are at in their lives at this point. He reveals, “Being older and wiser and having kids, the songs definitely touch us and move us in different ways now. It makes us look deeper.” Joe Don Rooney of the group adds, “It’s a bunch of songs that reflect the past 11 years. Songs that reflect pain and going through heartache, songs that reflect being in love and holding onto it for dear life for the rest of your life.”
