rascal flatts

Rascal Flatts continue to add to their many accolades today as they celebrate their 16th career No. One as their infectious single “I Like The Sound Of That” reached the top of both the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase charts. The smooth, catchy track that Rolling Stone dubbed as “sweetly reminiscent of the trio’s early days” was penned by Jesse Frasure, with pop star Meghan Trainor and Shay Mooney of country duo Dan + Shay. The chart-topping single is taken from their current album, Rewind, which debuted at No. One on the Billboard Country Albums chart, making Rascal Flatts one of only four acts from the SoundScan era to have eight consecutive studio albums debut in the top spot.

“We’ve had a lot of fun with this single,” said Gary LeVox. “It’s a blessing and humbling to be achieving milestones such as these and it just motivates us even more to keep going on this crazy journey with our amazing fans. A huge thank you to our friends at country radio and Big Machine family. We can’t wait to catch everybody back out on the road this summer to celebrate.”

Offering fans a change of pace with an eclectic setup, which includes the trio playing alongside longtime drummer Jim Riley and new multi-instrumentalist Casey Brown, who with his keyboard and percussion work adds drama and volume to the set. Rascal Flatts recently announced that their headlining RASCAL FLATTS: RHYTHM AND ROOTS TOUR will kick off in Charlotte, NC on 6/17 and the trio have invited red-hot newcomers Kelsea Ballerini and Chris Lane to join them out on the road.

Rascal Flatts to Open Restaurant in Cleveland

Rascal Flatts

Rascal Flatts have become the latest musicians to enter the restaurant business.  A business venture that has been a long time in the making.

Gary, Jay and Joe Don have set their sights on opening a new eatery in a waterfront redevelopment in Cleveland, Ohio, which is currently under construction.

The venue, which has yet to be named, is described as an “eclectic space” mixing “country themes with rustic and industrial stylings”, while the restaurant will feature a large patio area and indoor performance space, reports

“A restaurant supported by a national name like Rascal Flatts is the perfect addition to the Flats East Bank,” explained developer Scott Wolstein. “From the beginning, we set out to build an urban waterfront destination, and we’re excited to be able to offer this type of concept in conjunction with our existing restaurants and entertainment venues.”

The venue is expected to be open for business this fall.

Rascal Flatts have strong ties to Ohio – Gary LeVox and Jay DeMarcus were born in Columbus, while LeVox also graduated from Ohio State University.

The group will hit the road this summer for their 2016 Rhythm & Roots Tour.   The tour kicks off June 17 and runs through Sept. 17 withKelsea Ballerini and Chris Lane opening.
