Rascal Flatts Reveal Why They Fired Band Members

 Rascal Flatts

Rascal Flatts admit the reason they had to let some personnel go was done in order to continue to evolve as a band.

“We sat down at the end of last year, and it was a very difficult decision. We decided to make a change with three of the personnel we had,” Joe Don Rooney told reporters at a recent media event.

“We love the guys we had to let go, and it was a very, very difficult decision, but Jay and Gary and I got on the same page together, got on one bus and talked about it, and it’s what we felt like we needed to do to evolve and continue to evolve with our sound live. It’s like you do in the studio, you’ve got to evolve with your albums, and I felt like it was time to do that with our live show.”

Gary, Jay and Joe Don said that they wanted to make the changes in advance of their upcoming Las Vegas residency. The band will kick off their Riot Tour 2015 next month.

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  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.
