Country music has been very good to the guys in Rascal Flatts, and while they would love it if their kids loved country music, they really want the kids to make their own choices!
Jay DeMarcus will never forget the night his second child Dylan Jay was born, and he literally left the hospital still in scrubs to make it to that show back in 2012 in Detroit!

Jay DeMarcus who is also ‘Dad’ to daughter Madeline, says, “I’m a firm believer in you gotta let them pick the path and choose their own destiny, you know. I don’t wanna force anything on ‘em. If they love Country music and it’s part of who they are, great. If they like some other genre of music and they wanna pursue somethin’ else I think they should be exposed to all possibilities out there.”
Fortunately, Gary, Jay and Joe Don’s kids all seem to like country, including their dads’ latest single, “Riot,” as well as other types of music, and Jay says, “That’s the wonderful thing about music; different types of music speak different languages to different people.”
