Rascal Flatts Return To The Road This Summer With Dynamic Back To Us Tour Including Special Guests Dan + Shay & Carly Pearce

Known as one of the hottest-selling touring acts with over 10 million tickets sold, superstar vocal group Rascal Flatts revealed today that they will hit the road this summer for their headlining BACK TO US TOUR kicking off in Hartford, CT.

Groundbreakers within the genre themselves, as well as established tastemakers where “the road has been where the band has done some of their most inspiring work over the years” (Billboard) encouraging and helping break artists following in their footsteps, the trio has invited chart-toppers Dan + Shay and Carly Pearce to join them this summer.  The stacked headlining tour has been highly anticipated by fans excited to hear the group’s 17 career No. 1s and more, following their successful sold-out residency in Las Vegas last year. Fans can purchase tickets beginning January 26 for select cities as part of Live Nation’s Country Megaticket at www.Megaticket.com. Live Nation is the national tour promoter.

“I can’t describe how much we are looking forward to the tour this summer!” said Gary LeVox. “We’ve been lucky enough to be in a position to tour consistently throughout our career, and last year felt like the perfect time to reset as we focused on the release of our 10th album. Coming back this year and with our friends Dan + Shay, who are some of the best guys around, as well as Carly who had an amazing year last year, makes it all the more exciting! It’s going to be an awesome time for us and the fans!”

A force to be reckoned with in any genre, ‪Rascal Flatts recently released their tenth studio album, BACK TO US (Big Machine Records), heralded by Rolling Stone as “the band is returning to their sweet spot,” as well as back-to-back chart-topping singles “Yours If You Want It” and “I Like The Sound Of That.”  Time and success have only put the trio closer to their core on BACK TO US, their LP that’s both a return to form and a proclamation of everything that this trio has come to represent over nearly two decades. And that’s expert musicianship, razor sharp vocals and songs that have shaped lives, loves and the genre of country music itself. Known as the best-selling country vocal group of the past decade, Rascal Flatts has sold over 23.4 million albums, over 34.3 million digital downloads worldwide, as well as earning over 40 trophies from the ACA, ACM, AMA, CMA, People’s Choice and more, also making them the most awarded country group of the past decade.

ABOUT DAN + SHAY: Dan + Shay’s sophomore album Obsessed, featuring their most recent No. 1 single, “How Not To,” debuted earlier this year and follows their 2014 Where It All Began, which made them the first new country duo in SoundScan recorded history to debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Albums Chart. The album included the Platinum-certified debut single, “19 You + Me” and their first No. 1 single, “Nothin’ Like You,” which earned RIAA Gold certification. Their first single off Obsessed, “From The Ground Up” also earned RIAA Platinum certification and marked their second to hit the top of the charts. They have earned four consecutive nominations for both ACM Vocal Duo of the Year and CMA’s Vocal Duo of the Year award as well as nods for an American Country Countdown Awards, CMT Awards, and Radio Disney Music Awards. In 2017 Dan + Shay headlined their Obsessed Tour and joined Thomas Rhett for several dates on his Home Team Tour. For more information and tour dates, please visit DanAndShay.com and follow @DanandShay on Twitter and Instagram.

ABOUT CARLY PEARCE: With her GOLD-certified No. 1 “Every Little Thing,” Kentucky native Carly Pearce scored the highest charting solo female debut since July 2015 and joined an elite group of only three women to accomplish this feat in the past 12 years. Carly’s textured vocals and emotive songwriting prowess are emphasized on the Big Machine Records album recorded with sought-after producer busbee, which Uproxx hailed “the best country debut of 2017” and features the blockbuster title track plus new single “Hide the Wine.” Back-to-back chart-toppers on SiriusXM’s The Highway helped solidify Carly in their Class of 2017. The CMT Next Women of Country alum was named to multiple 2017 Ones To Watch Lists as People touted her “the new voice of Country,” and Brett Young invited her on a sold-out run. The new year continues the trajectory, landing Carly to the esteemed 2018 CRS New Faces and Pandora Artist to Watch as well as dates with Blake Shelton’s COUNTRY MUSIC FREAKS, Thomas Rhett’s LIFE CHANGES and Rascal Flatts’ BACK TO US tours.

RASCAL FLATTS EARN #1 SPOT AT COUNTRY RADIO AND ON THE BILLBOARD COUNTRY ALBUMS CHART WITH REWIND

Superstars Rascal Flatts have once again proved why they are the most-awarded Country vocal group of the past decade as their ninth album REWIND sits atop the Billboard Country Albums chart while the title track marks their 15th #1 hit single after making the ascend on the Mediabase Country Radio chart.

 

REWIND, released on May 16 via Big Machine Records, is Flatts’ eighth consecutive studio album to debut at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart. Jay DeMarcus with Rascal Flatts, Howard Benson and Dann Huff all contributed producing tracks on the project.

 

After appearing on “The Voice” and “NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams” last week, Flatts will swing by “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” tomorrow night (May 23). They will perform on the “Toyota Concert Series on TODAY” next Friday (May 30).

Rascal Flatts to Launch New Album REWIND with Massive Media Appearances and Promotions

Country music supergroup Rascal Flatts will release their ninth studio album REWIND on Big Machine Records tomorrow (5/13) with several national TV and radio performances in addition to exclusive promotional events.

 

The album comes just as the lead single “Rewind” is nearing the top of the Country Radio charts.

 

As the best-selling Country group of the past decade, Flatts have debuted their last seven studio albums at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart, a rare feat only achieved by four other artists. They’ve sold more than 22.5 million albums, scored 14 No. 1 singles, sold over 28 million digital downloads and earned more than 40 industry accolades, including six consecutive wins as the Country Music Association’s Vocal Group of the Year.

 

Exploring new sonic territory, REWIND chronicles the joys and complexities of life. Spearheaded by bassist Jay DeMarcus, Flatts co-produced more than half of the album with acclaimed producers Howard Benson and Dann Huff contributing to several of the 13 standard and four deluxe tracks.

 

“Music has changed so much in the last few years and in order to stay relevant you have to change with it, but we also had to be true to ourselves,” says DeMarcus.  “REWIND is a combination of staying with what people know and love, the familiar Flatts, but also bridging the musical gap into today’s Country music and pushing the envelope a little bit. There is a delicate balance and I think we’ve done a pretty good job. There are songs on the record where people are going to say, ‘That’s vintage Flatts! That’s what I fell in love with’ and a whole new generation of country music listeners are going to go, ‘Wow! I didn’t expect this from them!’”

 

To promote the release of REWIND, Rascal Flatts will appear on the following:

 

Monday, May 12

iHeart Radio LIVE Q&A and Performance at the iHeart Radio Theater in Los Angeles
