Rascal Flatts Announce Final Tour After Two Decades Together: 'We Can't Wait to Celebrate'
Life is a highway, but Rascal Flatts won’t be on the road for much longer.
During their Tuesday appearance on CBS This Morning, the band — comprised of Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney — announced that their 2020 tour will be their last.
“When we started out 20 years ago, we could not imagine all of the people, places and gifts we would encounter,” LeVox began. “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,'” he continued. “‘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,” LeVox added. “I don’t know what God has in store for the future, but I am excited to see what He has planned!”
