Why Wait

2 Aug, 2010

The band releases, Why Wait, from their album, Nothing Like This. DeMarcus:

Right when we heard ‘Why Wait,’ it instantly caught my attention as we were listening down through literally hundreds of songs on our [compilation] CDs. I kept going back to that one, because it’s such a unique melody and such a unique feel for us. It’s actually a shuffle, and we’ve never recorded a shuffle before. I remember I had a phone conversation with Gary [LeVox, Rascal Flatts’ lead singer] and I said, ‘Man, the second song on this comp, Why Wait, is really, really different for us and really catchy, and I think it could really showcase our harmonies.’ So when we went into the studio, we knew instantly that it was something special for us, and it was going to be a showcase piece on the album. Didn’t know it was going to be the first single by any means, but as we listened back through to some of the songs as we started to get the vocals on them, it just rose above the rest, and it became a no-brainer.
