Rascal Flatts says it's "Back to Us"
Monday, March 6, 2017
– Rascal Flatts will release its 10th studio album, "Back to Us," on May 19 on Big Machine Label Group.
"There was a nostalgic feeling between the three of us while in the studio for this record, a feeling that was more reminiscent of our first albums," said bassist Jay DeMarcus. "The journey we've all been on together is unreal and I can honestly say I'm even more excited about what is ahead for us. 'Back to Us' is not only a title of a song on the album, but a feeling that has been building around this new music. It just fits in so many ways."
"With this being our tenth album, we knew we wanted to be careful and deliberate in how we approached it," said lead singer Gary LeVox. "This time around, the three of us have been able to really focus and work together on what we want to say at this point in our careers. We've all been so energized by the process of making this album and we still have a lot more music to make and we still actually like each other....for now."
"Even though we do love to joke around, one of the best parts of being in the band is how much we really do enjoy each other's company," said guitarist Joe Don Rooney. "I think the comaraderie while recording 'Back to Us' has really lent itself to the spirit of the songs. We're so excited for everyone else to hear how much fun we had making this."

It's the big things - and sometimes the little things - that make Rascal Flatts' Christmas album "The Greatest Gift of All" stand out. On the macro level, the country vocal trio put a little funk - well, as much funk as three Nashville guys can muster - into "Go Tell It on The Mountain." And then, the cool little bass line introducing "Let It Snow" helps differentiate this act's version from possibly millions of other versions.
