It doesn’t get much better than this! Rascal Flatts is about to release their 10th studio album and shined with their current single ‘Yours If You Want It’ at the 2017 ACMs. We’ve got more on their blazing performance.
Some things never go out of style and for the country music scene, that’s Rascal Flatts. The trio is about to drop their 10th studio album so the 2017 Academy of Country Music Awards was the perfect place to give fans a yummy taste of what’s to come! The band performed the upbeat lead single “Yours If You Want It” in the first live TV performance of the song during the Apr. 2 ceremony from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Jay DeMarcus, 45, Joe Don Rooney, 41, and Gary LeVox, 46, killed it as always and they totally jammed out in spectacular style, revving the audience up with their energetic performance. They always slay at the ACMs as one of country’s longest running and most loved trios, and this might have been their greatest appearance ever at the annual event. The trio performed on a stage that put them right in the middle of the audience, so they were really feeling the love.
The band is up for 2017 ACM Vocal Group of the Year and are so happy to be back in Vegas among all of their musician pals. “It’s still special, just getting to come back and see all your friends that have been in the business all these years with us,” Joe Don shared ahead of the event. The band notched up seven wins in this category between 2003-2009 and were nominated again in 2015-2016.
Their latest album Back to Us drops on May 19th and the trio is thrilled to be back entertaining fans with new music. This is an undertaking that is extra special for the group as they produced 12 of the 13 tracks on the new LP, with Jay doing most of the heavy work. While the guys haven’t announced an official tour in support of the album yet, they’re already active on the road. They’ve got dates booked across the U.S. and Canada through May and are appearing at numerous upcoming country music festivals throughout the summer.
