RASCAL FLATTS REVEAL BACK TO US AS TENTH STUDIO ALBUM TO BE RELEASED MAY 19
ACM Awards “Vocal Group Of The Year” Nominee Perform New Single “Yours If You Want It” On The Ellen Degeneres Show Today
Nashville, TN - March 3, 2017 – ACM Awards “Vocal Group Of The Year” nominee Rascal Flatts unveiled BACK TO US as their tenth studio album when they stopped by The Ellen Degeneres Showtoday to perform their “sure-fire smash” (USA Today) “Yours If You Want It." BACK TO US,
available May 19 on Big Machine Records, follows the multi-platinum
selling group’s overwhelming successes to date, with a collection of
tracks that showcases what the group is best known for, encompassing
their distinct harmonies and instant anthems. Fans can preorder the new
album now here.
“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 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 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
Joe Don Rooney. “I think the comradery 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."
A force to be reckoned with in any genre, the upcoming release of BACK
TO US comes hot on the heels of the success of Rascal Flatts’ 16th No. 1
hit “I Like The Sound Of That,” from their ninth studio album REWIND
(Big Machine Records). The album debuted at No. 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 the best-selling country vocal group of the past decade,
Rascal Flatts has sold over 23.4 million albums, over 33.7 million
digital downloads worldwide, as well as earning over 40 trophies from
the ACAs, ACMs, AMAs, CMAs, People's Choice Awards and more, also making
them the most awarded country group of the past decade. Known as one of
the hottest-selling touring acts in any genre, the trio also recently
celebrated a major milestone of 10 million tickets sold, following a
rousing year stacked of headlining shows.
