Rascal Flatts Biography

Rascal Flatts, a native of Columbus, Ohio, is an American Grammy Award-winning music group which is composed of Gary Levox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney. The formation of the band can be considered accidental, as when DeMarcus and LeVox are already having gigs in a Nashville bar and that their guitarist was absent, DeMarcus asked his friend Rooney to sit in. Happy with the resulting sound, they recorded demos and signed with Lyric Street.

The trio sold more than 500,000 copies of their first album, with singles "This Everyday Love," "Prayin’ for Daylight" and "While You Loved Me." The fourth single, "I’m Movin On" catapulted their album to platinum status.

Their second album, Melt, gave birth to these number one singles: "These Days" and "Mayberry." Their next single "Bless The Broken Road" from the new album Feels Like Today, earned Rascal Flatts their first Grammy Award for Country song.

The next album, "Me and My Gang" was released in 2006 and made hits including "What Hurts the Most" and "Life Is a Highway."
