If you haven't heard of Rascal Flatts, they are a country music band made up of talented musicians: Jay DeMarcus, Joe Don Rooney, and Gary LeVox. I remember one of my favorite songs back in high school was "I'm Moving On" by the Rascal Flatts. Their lyrics are very meaningful and even though I'm not a huge country music fan, I feel like they have a sound that, although is definitely country, also appeals to a broader audience.
The one-night-only theater event, which was shown in several cities across the U.S., took audiences into the Rascal Flatts' newest album, Changed, and into their personal lives with a never-before-seen behind the scenes look. The event included a 45 minute concert of the new music from the Changed album and some of their greatest hits, along with rare interviews, and a special Q&A session with questions submitted by fans and movie theater audiences.
It was fun to hear some of the new songs from the Changed album. I particularly liked Hot in Here and Banjo - the songs are so catchy and just make you want to sing along. I also enjoyed learning more about the band members: how music has been a part of their lives since they were young, who and what has inspired them, what its like to be in a band together, etc. These guys seem so down to earth and they really love music - all of them at one point mentioned how they had a passion for music since they were young and how they wouldn't care if they went broke making music because it's not about the money or fame, it's about doing something they love and sharing it with the world. I like that attitude and feel that some artists in the industry have lost that (or never had it.) It's nice when you come across genuinely talented musicians who have a passion for what they do.
I think this event was great for fans of the Rascal Flatts, although being at a live concert would definitely have been better. Check out the new album, Changed, today and enter to win a Flyaway Trip & Tickets to see Rascal Flatts live in concert!
