Rascal Flatts Release ‘Riot’ as New Single
Rascal Flatts have released their latest single, 'Riot.' The song, written by Jaron Boyer and Sara Haze, is the third single from their 'Rewind' album, which was released earlier this year.
The song tells the emotional story of a man who ponders what he would do if his significant other ever left him. With lines like, "There would be a riot / Breakin' of my heart, I'd try to fight it / I could go out every night, but I'd be lyin' / If I said I could live and breathe / Without you / There'd be a lot of lonely / Wishin' and prayin' that you would hold me / I would do most anything baby if only / You would come back to me / Come back to me / There would be a riot / If I ever lost you," the tune, with less production than some of their other hits, was an important addition to the eclectic, 13-song record.
“We felt like it was important for us this time, after we got together and talked, to sit down and challenge ourselves musically,” band member Jay DeMarcus explains. “I don’t feel like anybody knows us better than we know ourselves. So why not go in [the studio], experiment and figure out, more importantly, what not to do, as well as what to do.”

DeMarcus and bandmates Gary LeVox and Joe Don Rooney will spend the remainder of the year off the road. They'll head to Las Vegas in February for a nine-show residency at the Hard Rock Cafe between Feb. 25 and March 14.
“We are thrilled to be playing such a storied venue as the Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas,” says DeMarcus. “We’re so excited to do something so different for us. You will experience Rascal Flatts in a way you’ve never seen us before -- up close, intimate and personal, and we promise you one thing, it’s going to rock!"
