The band releases, Payback, from, Rewind. DeMarcus:
We didn’t write the song, we found the song, or it found us. It’s revenge driven in a funny way. What he’s saying is basically, ‘Let’s dance together at this club tonight. We’ll take some pictures and put them out on the Internet and he’ll see it and it’ll piss him off and he’ll wonder.
The band releases, Banjo, from their album, Changed. DeMarcus describes the song meaning as:
A sentiment about getting away from it all, getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and sort of breaking out and finding a spot way out in the country and drivin’ and drivin’ and drivin’ until you go so far you start to hear a banjo.
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.
The band releases, Every Day, from, Still Feels Good. DeMarcus:
I think the simple message of that song is what attracted me to Every Day. It’s one of those simple yet profound lyrics. When you hear that chorus and he says, ‘Every day you save my life,’ it hits you like a ton of bricks. There are so many people that come in and out of your life that you feel that way about. So many people have stood behind me for so long. I immediately thought of my mom and how encouraging she was to me over the years, struggling in Nashville, and I wanted to give up and come back home and get an ordinary job somewhere. That song really moved me when I thought about those people that are in my life that I lean on so heavily. My wife, my family, it’s just a really great song.
