In August of 2015, Rascal Flatts released "I Like the Sound of That" as the fourth single from their 2014 album, Rewind. The tune was written by Jesse Frasure, Dan + Shay's Shay Mooney and Meghan Trainor, and at the end of April of 2016, it hit No. 1 on the country charts. Below, Frasure and Mooney share their memories of the day they wrote the catchy song.

Shay Mooney: It was one of those days where we had the idea, just kind of started on the groove. Jesse’s an incredible track guy and writer as well. That title -- we landed on that, and I have no idea what happened after that.

Jesse Frasure: I met Shay and Meghan before their artist careers: Shay was working with T-Pain in Atlanta, and Meghan was living in Nantucket, and we kind of just fell into a cool thing with each other, just because we came from different backgrounds. We started working -- I think it was in ‘14.

Mooney: It was way before I met Dan [Smyers]. Actually, a friend of mine in town, Nash Overstreet, he’s the son of Paul Overstreet ... I called him when I first moved to town, and I was like, "Who’s the best track guy that pushes it a little bit? I want somebody that I can work with." The first name he said was "Jesse Frasure." So we started working together.

[turns to Frasure] I called you that day. I remember where I was the first time I talked to you: It was at Blackbird Studio. I called you on the phone, and I was like, "Hey, man, I’m a nobody, I’d love to write with you." He was like, "Yeah, man, let’s do it." We ended up starting to write quite a bit after that.

Frasure: We wrote a song called “DJ Tonight” that’s on [Rascal Flatts' Rewind] record. That was the first time … We were both pretty young in our careers. We didn’t have a lot of cuts going on; in fact, this was the first cut I ever had that my parents were like, "Oh, yeah. Rascal Flatts."

It kind of came from that. We kept [writing together], and of course, Dan + Shay and Meghan started doing their thing … This was so early on.

To see the song do this with a band that we grew up loving meant a lot.

Mooney: He was one of the first people that I had written with, and we came up together. We didn’t have anything. I mean, obviously, you were much further along in your career.

Frasure: It was just baby things here and there. I think that was what was comfortable about it … Meghan was so shy, and she felt comfortable. I think she brought the ukulele to write that day.

Mooney: She’s a very talented writer, and beloved performer, obviously.
