Best Rascal Flatts Songs:  My Top 25 List

Rascal Flatts have been one of the most successful bands in the music industry for more than a decade now.  They are a trio that is still made up of all its original members.  A lot of their success and durability can be credited to the fact that they won’t make decisions unless they all agree, as they have stated in past interviews.  They have collected 44 major awards over the last 13 years from various awards shows such as the CMA, AMA, CMT, ACM, AMA, and People’s Choice Awards shows among others. They have released 8 studio albums under their label Disney Music Group’s Lyric Street Records, all of these albums were certified platinum or higher.

Racal Flatts is made up of lead singer Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus who plays bass guitar, keyboard, piano, and vocals, and Joe Don Rooney who does lead guitar and vocals.  LeVox and DeMarcus are second cousins.  Also interesting to note is that Jay DeMarcus is married to CMT Insider correspondent Allison DeMarcus.  Their founding roots are in Fiddle and Steel Guitar Bar in Nashville, Tennessee. DeMarcus got his start as part of “East to West”, a Christian group.  He then convinced LeVox to come to Nashville to give his unique vocals a chance on Michael English’s album “Gospel” providing some harmonies.  During that same time frame DeMarcus had become the bandleader of Chely Wright’s band which is where he came across Joe Don Rooney, and the rest is history as they say. Here is a list of the top 25 songs they have put out over the last 13 years.

Rascal Flatts are already one of the greatest country bands in history.  They are still young and still very talented and relevant.  They continue to score big on the charts and award shows year after year.  I think they will be around for a long time to come, and will release many more number one hits for both the country music genre and hopefully also the Christian music genre.  I hope this article was helpful and informative to all of you Rascal Flatts fans. If we missed one of your favorite hits tell the F&E team in the comment section below. God Bless, Jesus is King!
