Rascal Flatts is back in a big way with their single “Yours If You Want It” and the trio couldn’t be happier.
The single is the first from their album Back To Us and it’s currently inside the country Top 10. That’s familiar territory for the 17-year-old band , though it’s been a while since they’ve been there. “This song has just done something incredible, especially for us and our career, after this many years being in and having a song that resonates with the fans out there, radio’s playing it and embracing it, it’s incredible,” the band’s Joe Don Rooney says through their record label. “And live it’s so much fun to play. You know, it’s a lot of great energy and very thankful and grateful for that song.”
“Yours If You Want It” was one of the first songs the trio recorded for the new album. “It’s funny because we kind of we cut it and kind of went away because it was one of the first things we cut,” Gary LeVox adds. “A lot of times you put your ear to new stuff you’re like, ‘That’s it. That’s it.’ Then you cut another one and you go, ‘That’s it.’ Well ‘Yours If You Want It’ just hung in there and it was like man, I mean that’s exactly what we want to say right at this time, and just a great way to kick off the album, an up tempo with a great lyric. And those are tough to find and it’s doing fantastic.”
The guys recently performed at Nashville’s 2017 CMA Music Festival, which will air August 16th on ABC as CMA Fest. Coming shows are scheduled for Wisconsin, Illinois, Nevada, Arkansas and Mississippi, among others. See a complete list of dates here.
