RASCAL FLATTS EARN #1 SPOT AT COUNTRY RADIO AND ON THE BILLBOARD COUNTRY ALBUMS CHART WITH REWIND
Nashville, TN – May 22, 2014 – 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).
In addition to radio and sales success, Flatts kicked off the REWIND Tour 2014 over the weekend (May 16) at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in St. Louis. The 35-city tour, presented by Live Nation, features special guest Sheryl Crow and opening act Gloriana. According to the St. Louis Dispatch, “Rascal Flatts has started summer tours in St. Louis before, but maybe no opening night was better than the Friday night fun-fest the band staged.”
Commemorating Flatts’ 11th headline tour, REWIND Tour 2014 will continue to rock audiences throughout the summer with a final show at Detroit’s Comerica Park on September 21.
