Rascal Flatts Likes the Sound of Another No. 1 Hit

Rascal Flatts Likes the Sound of Another No. 1 Hit

It was time for a party on Wednesday afternoon (July 13) when the boys of Rascal Flatts—Gary LeVox, Joe Don Rooney and Jay DeMarcus—headed over to First Tennessee Park, home of the Nashville Sounds minor league baseball team, to celebrate their No. 1 song “I Like the Sound of That.”

Rascal_Flatts_Single_I_Like_Sound_ofthatGary, Joe Don and Jay, along with songwriters Shay Mooney of Dan + Shay and Jesse Frasure, gathered onstage to thank all those who helped in the making of the song. Pop star Meghan Trainor, who also co-wrote the song, was not in attendance.

Prior to the party, the hit-making trio answered questions about their 13th No. 1 song, the album Rewind and selecting this song for the album.

“This album Rewind has been really special for us because it luckily won’t go away,” Joe Don said. “We had a little dip there but we had this song on the back burner for a long time—for the life of the project—“I Like the Sound of That.” Once we decided to go with it everybody was on board, everybody believed and it’s amazing what’s it done for us.”

Congratulations to all!

 

 

The trio is currently on their Rhythm and Roots Tour with opening acts Kelsea Ballerini and Chris Lane. For more information you can check out the schedule HERE.

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

If you’ve been to lower Broadway in Nashville over the last several years, you know country music artist owned honkytonks having been sprouting up all along Music City’s famous strip.

Jason Aldean, John Rich, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Alan Jackson all already have venues…but now there’s another name being thrown in the mix, and it’s a first!

Miranda Lambert will be the first female country artist to have a downtown venue. Miranda’s place will be located at 308 Broadway, and looks to be named “Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa.”

Miranda was perhaps encouraged to move into this new venture by a 2018 Nashville Business Journal poll. When music industry pros were asked, “Which female country star should open a downtown bar?” — Miranda garnered the most votes.

Miranda is partnering with TC Restaurant Group on the new place, and it looks like even more details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
