Rascal Flatts Breaks Up
Back in early 2020, Rascal Flatts announced that they would be calling it quits after 20 years in the business together.
The trio broke the news in the form of a farewell concert titled, Rascal Flatts Farewell: Life Is A Highway Tour.
In a press release, Gary, Jay and Joe Don reflected back on the past 20 years:
“When we started out 20 years ago, we could not imagine all of the people, places and gifts we would encounter. The greatest feeling ever, is being told that our music has been the soundtrack to their lives.
What greater gift can an artist receive than to be told ‘I got married to “Bless The Broken Road,”’ or ‘We played “My Wish” at my graduation.’ That ‘“What Hurts The Most” is the song that made me love country music for the first time,’ or ‘“I’m Movin’ On” helped me get sober’ or even that ‘“Changed” made me call my family again after not talking to them for years.’
That’s why we create music and the reason we can’t wait to celebrate this incredible 20 year journey all year, with our fans who we love dearly. I don’t know what God has in store for the future, but I am excited to see what He has planned!”
They announced a farewell tour, however the COVID-19 pandemic broke out shortly after the announcement, interrupting the tour.
