Rascal Flatts Admit They Are Disappoined with Lack of Award Recognition

rascal flatts

Rascal Flatts’ Jay DeMarcus says that while they aren’t greedy, it is a bit disheartening for the group to not have won a major country music award since 2009.

“I love what Dale Earnhardt used to say: ‘I’m not greedy, I’m just stingy,'” DeMarcus tells The Boot. “I’d like to win them all. When you’re up for them, you like to win them. It’s hard to watch so many people that you take out on the road with you, to open for you, go on and win Entertainer of the Year. I felt like there were some years in the mid-2000s where we were worthy of it. That’s not being braggadocious. The numbers proved it, and we never, for some reason, got to the point to where people voted for us to get that. That’s the toughest one for me to come to terms with.”

Rascal Flatts have not won an ACM Award since 2009 and haven’t won a CMA Award since 2008.
