Rascal Flatts Gets Back to Basics With New Album, “Back to Us”

Rascal Flatts—Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney—made a visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show this morning (March 3) to announce the release of their 10th studio album, Back to Us, and to perform the album’s lead single, “Yours If You Want It.”

The new album, set to drop on May 19, is the follow-up to their successful hit-producing album, Rewind, which featured the chart-topping “I Like The Sound of That” and Top 5 hit, “Rewind.”

“With this being our 10th album, we knew we wanted to be careful and deliberate in how we approached it,” said Gary in a statement. “This time around, the three of us have been able to really focus and work together on what we want to say at this point in our careers. We’ve all been so energized by the process of making this album and we still have a lot more music to make and we still actually like each other . . . for now.”

According to Jay, Back to Us, will bring us back to the early days of Rascal Flatts, with a collection of songs that focus on the groups standout harmonies and upbeat hits.

“There was a nostalgic feeling between the three of us while in the studio for this record, a feeling that was more reminiscent of our first albums,” said Jay. “The journey we’ve all been on together is unreal and I can honestly say I’m even more excited about what is ahead for us. Back To Us is not only a title of a song on the album, but a feeling that has been building around this new music. It just fits in so many ways.”

The album is available for pre-order here. Check out Gary, Joe Don and Jay performing “Yours If You Want It” on Ellen.
