Rascal Flatts continue to release select tracks from their upcoming 'Unstoppable' disc via iTunes each week. On March 24, the tune that leads off the new album, 'Love Who You Love,' became the latest made available to the public. And while the broader message of the song is to remind those closest to you of your love for them, the trio are aware that the song may also serve as a message of acceptance toward others, including their fans and friends in the gay community.

"We actually have some gay people that work with us, and we have a lot of friends that are gay, too, and I know that this song has inspired them," lead singer Gary LeVox tells CMT. "I know that coming out was tough on their parents and on them and the whole entire family. For a long time, some of them didn't get to hear 'I love you' from their dads or be accepted in that way ... It's helped a lot of our friends."

"That's what's cool about our music," guitarist Joe Don Rooney adds. "You can interpret [it like] that. If you get that -- it's perfect. If you are someone who's gay or someone who's straight, you still feel something from the song, and that's what we want."

"We don't judge anybody's lives," said bassist Jay DeMarcus.

The group's thoughts on the subject seem to echo those of fellow country artist Martina McBride, who, as we recently reported, spoke to gay publication Out.com on the subject of tolerance toward others and the need to "embrace each others' strengths and differences and uniqueness and beauty."

Rascal Flatts' 'Unstoppable' will be released on April 7.
