RASCAL FLATTS SCORE SENTIMENTAL 17TH CAREER NO.ONE WITH “YOURS IF YOU WANT IT”
Nashville, TN – July 24, 2017 – Predicted by USA Today as a “sure-fire smash,” superstar vocal group Rascal Flatts are celebrating their 17th career No. One today with “Yours If You Want It,” landing the top spot on Billboard and Country Aircheck/Mediabase Country Airplay charts. Co-written by Jonathan Singleton and the late Andrew Dorff, the infectious track, which “showcases the band’s vocal harmonies and knack for sing-along hooks,” (Rolling Stone) garnered attention from the moment it dropped. The trio recognized by Billboard for “placing singles on the Billboard Country Singles chart since 2000, and there seems to be no slowdown in sight for Rascal Flatts.
“It’s so humbling for us that the milestones keep coming, and it’s definitely not something that we take for granted,” said Joe Don Rooney. “I truly believe that this song found us, and to know that Andrew Dorff, with his passing, loved what we did with the song and that his legacy continues to live on is a blessing. We’re honored to have put our voices on it.”
Rascal Flatts are continuing to garner acclaim following the recent release of their tenth studio album, BACK TO US (Big Machine Records), with Radio.com heralding that the collection “shines the spotlight on frontman Gary LeVox’s pristine vocals, guitarist Joe Don Rooney’s stellar musicianship, and Jay DeMarcus’ production ability.” As the best-selling country vocal group of the past decade, Rascal Flatts has sold over 23.4 million albums, over 33.7 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.
