About the artist
They have set more venue attendance records than any country act en route to ticket sales of six million and counting. They have sold 21 million albums, 25 million digital downloads and earned 13 #1 singles. With the #1 debut on the Country Albums sales chart of Nothing Like This, Rascal Flatts becomes one of only four country acts to debut six consecutive studio albums at #1. They have won nearly 40 awards from the ACM, CMA, AMA and People's Choice, among others, and they have received that ultimate honor for those who have impacted the culture—a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Committed to giving back, they are known for their charitable work, which includes raising three million dollars for the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville. “That,” says Jay, “is definitely the thing I’m most proud of.”
“Without a doubt we've been blessed to have received our fair share of awards and recognitions in this business,” adds Joe Don. “But above all, getting to make music that matters, that affects people emotionally and spiritually, is the greatest thing we could ever accomplish.”
Never content to rest on their laurels, they are eagerly looking forward.
“The goal,” adds Gary,” is to continue to make amazing music together for at least the next ten years, because we honestly feel like we’re just getting started.”
“And as long as we stay true to the music and each other,” adds Jay, “everything else will fall into place.”
Rascal Flatts will release their latest studio album entitled CHANGED on April 3, 2012.
