Rascal Flatts stoppen ermee en afscheidstournee

Rascal Flatts stoppen ermee

Na 20 jaar als band, stoppen de Rascal Flatts ermee. Het new country trio kondigde dit dinsdagochtend aan (7 januari).

Rascal Flatts onthulde hun plannen voor een Farewell: Life Is a Highway Tour vanochtend aan op CBS. Bandlid Jay DeMarcus zegt dat hij en de bandleden Gary LeVox en Joe Don Rooney er naar uitkijken om het hele jaar aan de fans te mogen besteden en zo hun te bedanken voor het mogelijk maken ​​van hun geweldige carrière in de afgelopen 20 jaar."



Gary LeVox

“When we started out 20 years ago, we could not imagine all of the people, places and gifts we would encounter,” aldus Gary LeVox. “The greatest feeling ever, is being told that our music has been the soundtrack to their lives. What greater gift can an artist receive than to be told ‘I got married to “Bless The Broken Road,”’ or ‘We played “My Wish” at my graduation.’ That ‘“What Hurts The Most” is the song that made me love country music for the first time,’ or ‘“I’m Movin’ On” helped me get sober’ or even that ‘“Changed” made me call my family again after not talking to them for years.’ That’s why we create music and the reason we can’t wait to celebrate this incredible 20 year journey all year, with our fans who we love dearly. I don’t know what God has in store for the future, but I am excited to see what he has planned!”

Jay DeMarcus

“We’re really looking forward to getting to spend this entire year loving on our fans, and thanking them for allowing us to have the most amazing career over the last 20 years,” zegt Jay DeMarcus. “While it is of course bittersweet, it is so important to us to celebrate what our music has meant to their lives, as well as what the fans have meant to us. There is no sadness here, just new chapters, new journeys, and new beginnings. Rascal Flatts’ music will live on forever, because of our fans, and this year is all about them!”

Joe Don Rooney

“Dreams do come true…and we are three walking examples of this truth,” vertlelt Joe Don Rooney. “I’m most proud of the fact that we’ve pursued our dreams together and with courage, hard-work and dedication we’ve been able to cultivate our dreams into reality, it’s simply incredible! There’s no doubt we have been blessed way beyond belief and we can’t wait to spend the rest of 2020 expressing our love and appreciation to all of our devoted fans, music industry friends and our families for believing in us and playing a major role in our path to here. And, I personally can’t wait to shine a light on my brothers Jay and Gary this year, and make another mountain of new memories with them.”

Sinds het begin als trio in 2000, hebben de Flatts 17 nummer 1 nummers verdiend - waaronder "Bless the Broken Road", "My Wish" en verkocht ze meer dan 23 miljoen albums. Ze zijn de meest bekroonde new countrygroep van de jaren 2000 en hebben meer dan 40 ACM Awards, CMA Awards, American Music Awards en andere onderscheidingen verdiend. Ze wonnen zeven keer achter elkaar de Vocal Group of the Year van de ACM. In 2011 werden Rascal Flatts ingewijd in de Grand Ole Opry; het jaar daarop ontvingen ze een ster op de Hollywood Walk of Fame.
