County music stars Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus, and Joe Don Rooney make up the group Rascal Flatts. Rascal Flatts have a slick-feeling sound and are appealing to a more youthful demographic...leaping them to superstardom.
Jay DeMarcus met Joe Don Rooney when they both landed jobs with Chely White’s band. All the while DeMarcus and LeVox were doing minor gigs in Nashville bars when their regular guitarist could not make it for a show one weekend. It was then that DeMarcus asked Rooney to fill in. It was at that moment that DeMarcus loved the resulting sound.
They signed with Lyric Street and would send three songs into the Top 10 in early 2000. Their careers are young and fresh, having accomplished a lot in just a few years. With sell out tours and fans lining up Rascal Flatts have an outstanding sound…and their live performances are real and exciting.
