Rascal Flatts Name Summer Trek the American Band Tour
Details continue to emerge about Rascal Flatts’ upcoming summer tour. The trio, comprised of Joe Don Rooney, Jay DeMarcus and Gary LeVox, previously announced they were heading out for the warmer months with the Eli Young Band, Little Big Town and Edens Edge, and now they have an official name for the new trek.
The American Band tour will kick off on June 15 in Hartford, Conn., and the guys couldn’t be more excited. “We are always looking for new ways to re-energize our live shows,” Jay shares. “We thought bringing out these bands, whom are among some of our favorite vocal groups, would make a great night of entertainment!”
The guys have plenty more to plan besides finishing out their current Thaw Out tour and prepping for their summer dates. They’ve also revealed plans are in the works for a clothing line, a fragrance line, a steakhouse and a documentary film about their lives and career. In addition, their latest studio album, ‘Change,’ will hit shelves April 3. The album’s title cut is, according to the threesome, a perfect way to summarize how they have evolved in the last decade.
“It was a great title,” Gary shares. “Everything in our career has changed. We switched record labels. Last year, we switched management companies. A lot of things have changed in the last 10 years. We thought it summed up everything.”
For now, the ACM Award nominees for Top Vocal Group will have to put most of their energy in their upcoming shows. Details are still being finalized for their American Band tour, as their winter trek continues with stops in Florida, Alabama, Arkansas and Pennsylvania this month.
