I’ve been a Rascal Flatts fan for years, have seen them in concert countless times and even had the opportunity to meet them in person, twice. And, if this tells you anything, the first dance at our wedding, was their song, “Here.” I’m pretty sure if I had the money, I would have tried to get them to actually play at my wedding! So, when I heard that they were once again making a tour stop in the Fort, I was immediately on board.
Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney have only been in the country spotlight for a little over a decade, but their powerful ballads and summer party anthems have sky-rocketed them to success in the country music genre and beyond. They have received more than forty major awards, including the Academy of Country Music’s “Vocal Group of the Year,” which they have won seven times and with more than 21 million albums sold, they have seen thirteen of their singles go number one on the charts. They released their eighth studio album, “Changed,” in April, which features their current single, “Come Wake Me Up.”
I can honestly say that I can’t pick one of their songs as my favorite; there are just too many that I love, but I can always find that one song that exactly matches how I’m feeling. The energy and excitement of the Flatts crowd from the first piano chord to the very last guitar riff is amazing. If you aren’t a Rascal Flatts fan or have never experienced their music at a live show, this is one that I guarantee you will not regret.
