Rascal Flatts Readies “Greatest Hits” Album in Celebration of 20th Anniversary

Rascal Flatts will continue to celebrate their 20th anniversary this year with the release of a new album, Twenty Years of Rascal Flatts The Greatest Hits, on Oct. 2.

In January, the trio—comprised of Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney—revealed they will disband this year to tackle individual projects, but they left the door open to reunite.

The 20-song collection features a number of fan-favorite hits, including “These Days,” “Fast Cars and Freedom,” “Bless the Broken Road,” “My Wish” and more.

“When we were putting together the track listing for this, it was an emotional but nostalgic feeling getting a chance to look back during this anniversary year,” says Gary. “We hope that our fans feel the same way when they listen to it. This release and this year as a band is all a huge thank you and celebration for them.”

While the COVID-19 pandemic put a kibosh on their Farewell Tour this year, the trio released a seven-song EP, How They Remember You, in July.

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.”
