Rascal Flatts Celebrates a Decade Together


Rascal Flatts has a lot to celebrate in 2010. The new year marks the tenth year the trio has been together in which they have taken home numerous awards, topped many charts, traveled all over the world and have sold out venues like Wrigley Field.  

Band members Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney joined in 2000 when they released their first single, “Prayin’ For Daylight,” and self-titled debut album. According to a news release, within ten years the three heartthrobs put 11 No. 1 singles on the charts and have more songs on Billboard’s Top 100 Songs of the Decade than any other group in the format.
Rascal Flatts has sold more than 20 million albums and 25 million digital downloads. In addition, all six of their albums have made Billboard’s Top 100 Country Albums of the Decade and two, Me and My Gang and Feels Like Today, have made Billboard’s All-Genre Top 200 Albums of the Decade.
The Ohio natives received more than 40 trophies in the last decade from the Academy of Country Music, American Music Awards, Country Music Association, People’s Choice Awards and more and have performed for the President as well as appearing on shows like American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah.
On the road, the band has had more venue attendance records than any other Country act and has a ticket tally close to 6 million. They are the first and only Country music act to sell out the Wrigley Field.
