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, Rewind, from their album with the the same name. LeVox:
I wish we could rewind remembering some of the special moments ’cause it went by so fast. If we could rewind and maybe slow it down a little bit so that we could have enjoyed some of the moments that flew past us. I would rewind that.

Jingle Bell Rock performance

The band releases, Changed, from their album with the the same name. LeVox:
We really felt like we had something magical on that. The three of us just held the pen and God kind of wrote the whole thing. It talks about how we all screw up and make mistakes and we can all change, but you have to be man enough or woman enough to say, ‘Hey, I’m sorry.’ Because you can’t live your life with regret. It’s time to change and sometimes the hardest thing in life is just forgiving yourself.

Come Wake Me Up performance

Come Wake Me Up
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.
Mary Did You Know performance
Rascal Flatts perform Mary Did You Know on the CMA Country Christmas Special.
Rascal Flatts and Bedingfield perform Easy at the CMA Awards from Flatts album Nothing Like This.
The band releases, Easy, featuring, Natasha Bedingfield, from, Nothing Like This. Bedingfield:
I’ve always had very eclectic and varied tastes in music. I think you’re always going to see that from me, just working with people in different genres. I love it. Rascal Flatts were fantastic; I’ve always been into folk music and Americana, people like Johnny Cash, so I feel that’s quite linked to country music. And I know Rascal Flatts are classified as pop/country, definitely more in that world. So it was like opening a window for me.
I Won’t Let Go
The band releases, I Won’t Let Go, from their album, Nothing Like This.
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 their song, Why, from their album, Unstoppable. Rooney:
It’s a story that you get in your mind as you hear the lyrics. My friend who committed suicide was 17, the summer before senior year. That second verse — “In my mind, I keep you frozen like a 17-year-old” — it’s eerie to me and it’s haunting. At the same time, it’s a poignant message for the youth out there, for the teenagers out there, struggling and contemplating that decision, which they shouldn’t make. That’s why this song’s got a lot of angst in it because it wants to let that [message] out of the bag — that’s not the answer. You don’t have to do that. There’s so much more in your life to live for. There are so many more people in your life that are going to be affected by a decision like that. That’s why I do love that song
