Rascal Flatts Premiere “Riot” Music Video

Rascal Flatts

Superstar vocal group Rascal Flatts released the emotion-driven video for their current single “RIOT” today exclusively on NASH TV at www.nashtv.com.  Directed by Brian Lazzaro, the storyline of “Riot” is woven through an intense boxing match while spotlighting a young couple going through deep relationship turmoil, as Rascal Flatts execute a powerful performance of the track.

“This song has so many different interpretations that there were a lot of concepts to play around with,” said Rascal Flatts’ Gary LeVox. “Ultimately though, this song is about fighting for love and this video tugs at your heart strings. The story between the couple was shot beautifully, we’re really pleased with it and looking forward to our fans seeing the song from this perspective.”

Currently nominated for ACM’s “Vocal Group of The Year,” Rascal Flatts will head to Texas later this week to perform live on 50th Academy of Country Music Awards broadcasting from AT&T Stadium on April 19 at 7:00PM CT on CBS.  The trio are the most awarded country group of the past decade, having earned over 40 trophies from the ACAs, ACMs, AMAs, CMAs, People’s Choice Awards and more.

To date Rascal Flatts (Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney) have scored 15 No. One songs, sold over 22.8 million albums, over 29 million digital downloads, and their current ninth studio album REWIND (Big Machine Records) debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart making them one of only four acts during the SoundScan era to have eight consecutive studio albums debut in the top spot.  As one of the hottest-selling acts on tour in any genre Rascal Flatts are gearing up to undertake their headlining RIOT TOUR 2015 beginning May 29 and continue across the country throughout the summer. The trio has invited Scotty McCreery and RaeLynn to join them on the road. For the latest updates, visit www.rascalflatts.com.
