Rascal Flatts Changed
The best-selling country vocal group of the past decade, Rascal Flatts, continues their run as their second album on Big Machine Records, Changed, debuts at #1 with sales nearing 130,000. With this #1 album debut, Rascal Flatts has the distinction of being one of only four acts to have seven consecutive studio albums debut in the top spot on the Billboard Country Albums chart during the Soundscan era. 
The guys launched the record with numerous television appearances including the 47th Academy of Country Music Awards, Dancing With The Stars, Ellen DeGeneres Show, Good Morning America as well as a very special one-night only in-theater movie event.
The first single off the new album, "Banjo," is already a Top 10 Country radio hit and rising.
Changed was produced by Dann Huff and was recorded in the home studio of member Jay DeMarcus. The album contains five co-written songs by the members of Rascal Flatts.
Since their musical debut in 2000, the band has sold over 21 million albums, 25 million digital downloads and delivered 13 #1 singles to the top of the charts. Rascal Flatts is the most awarded Country group of the past decade, earning over 40 trophies from the ACAs, ACMs, AMAs, CMAs, People's Choice Awards and more. As one of the hottest-selling acts on tour in any genre, they’ve sold over 6 million concert tickets, and counting.
On June 15, they will kick off their summer tour, Farmers Insurance Presents “Changed Tour,” with Little Big Town, and Big Machine Label Group labelmates Eli Young Band and Edens Edge. For tour dates and album updates, visit
