Rascal Flatts Saying Goodbye—For Now—With New 7-Song EP, “How They Remember You”

Rascal Flatts is saying goodbye—for now—with its new seven-song EP, How They Remember You, which dropped on July 31.

In January, the trio—comprised of Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Roone—revealed they will disband this year to tackle individual projects, but they left the door open to reunite. While the COVID-19 pandemic put a kibosh on their Farewell Tour this year, the trio is hoping to keep their longtime fans entertained with the new EP.

The EP includes six brand-new tracks, as well as a rendition of Kenny Rogers’ “Through the Years.” The new EP features songs co-penned by Thomas Rhett, Rhett Akins, Josh Osborne, Jesse Frasure, Ashley Gorley and more.

Rascal Flatts released the album’s title track as their new single on June 19. Penned by Marc Beeson, Josh Osborne and Allen Shamblin, “How They Remember You” is No. 36 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart after six weeks.

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
