Rascal Flatts Lip Syncing Fiasco Was Over Blown

Rascal Flatts

In the history of overblown country music controversies, the Rascal Flatts lip-synching story is near the top. As widely reported, the band’s lead singer lost his voice shortly before last week’s 49th Annual ACM Awards in Las Vegas and elected to go on with the show – with some pre-recorded help. Turns out, it’s not that uncommon an occurrence … and not because country singers can’t sing.

“There have been plenty of people who have lip-synched on our show,” awards producer RAC Clark tells us. “There are a lot of activities in Las Vegas with other concerts, private shows, radio remotes – there is a lot of talking. Not to mention the lack of humidity and hotel air. Some artists, especially those with a finely tuned instrument like Gary LeVox’s, can only handle so much.”

Flatts fans can rest easy – LeVox’s status as one of the most respected vocalists in the genre is firmly intact.

Rascal Flatts are set to released “Rewind,” on May 13.

Rascal Flatts Let It All Hang Out Recording New Album

Rascal Flatts

Rascal Flatts recorded their latest album at bassist Jay DeMarcus’ house, which made for a comfortable experience. Sometimes, it was too comfortable. Guitarist Joe Don Rooney tells the Associated Press,

“Seeing Jay scantily clad a lot of times was very inspiring.” DeMarcus jokes he has “a lucky thong,” and Rooney adds, “And a see-through robe!”    Singer Gary LeVox admits seeing that can make it hard to sing ballads!

Rascal Flatts are set to released “Rewind,” on May 13.
