Bio

A country trio known primarily for its pleasing harmonies and Grammy-winning songcraft, Rascal Flatts comprised Gary LeVox, Jay Demarcus, and Joe Don Rooney. Cousins Demarcus and LeVox grew up in Columbus, Ohio, a town Demarcus eventually left in 1992 to pursue a music career in Nashville. Meanwhile, LeVox pursued his own musical success with a Christian group; at the behest of his cousin, however, he also relocated to Nashville toward the decade's end. Although LeVox quickly found work as the keyboardist for country star Chely Wright, he still found time to play local shows with Demarcus. One night, the duo asked Oklahoma native Joe Don Rooney (who played guitar in Wright's band) to join them during a Printer's Alley gig in Nashville. A bond was quickly formed, and the musicians abandoned their other duties in favor of forming Rascal Flatts in the late '90s. After landing a record deal with Lyric Street Records, Rascal Flatts recorded an eclectic mix of country and pop for the trio's self-titled debut. The album arrived in 2000, and "Prayin' for Daylight" became the group's first smash single. Rascal Flatts ultimately sent four singles to the Top Ten before the band's second album, Melt, appeared in October 2002. Co-produced by the bandmates themselves, Melt sold a million copies in eight weeks and yielded the band's first number one country hit "These Days." By this time, Rascal Flatts had established themselves as a highly successful country act, with a particularly strong following among younger listeners (an elusive demographic to most country stars). A live album served as an amiable segue between Melt and 2004's chart-topping Feels Like Today, while Me and My Gang arrived in April 2006. Rascal Flatts' 2007 release, Still Feels Good, enjoyed a similar reception, going platinum before the year's end and yielding another number one hit, "Take Me There." Unstoppable followed in 2009. After Lyric Street Records ceased operations, the trio signed with Big Machine and released its seventh studio album, Nothing Like This, in 2010. Nothing Like This was another hit, thanks in part to the Natasha Bedingfield duet "Easy," and the group released The Best of Rascal Flatts Live in time for the Christmas season of 2011. Changed, Rascal Flatts' seventh studio album, and the first with the Big Machine Label Group, appeared early in 2012. "Banjo," the first single from Changed, hit number one on the U.S. Country charts and "Come Wake Me Up" peaked at number eight, but the album overall became the group's first record to not go platinum. Perhaps that's the reason the band decided to shake things up for their next album, hiring Howard Benson -- a producer known for his nu-metal, alt-rock, and pop hits, including records by Kelly Clarkson, 3 Doors Down, DAUGHTRY, and My Chemical Romance -- to produce Rewind. Preceded by its title track as a single (which peaked at six on Billboard's country charts), Rewind appeared in May 2014. ~ Andrew Leahey & Rick Cohoon
