Rascal Flatts is an American country music group formed in Columbus, Ohio in 1999. The band is composed of Gary LeVox (lead vocals) and second cousins Jay DeMarcus (bass guitar, keyboards, background vocals) and Joe Don Rooney (electric guitar, background vocals). DeMarcus is a brother-in-law of country singer James Otto, and formerly one-half of the Christian music duo East to West.
On April 8, 2013, Jay DeMarcus tweeted that Rascal Flatts was working on a new album The lead single, “Rewind”, was issued in January 2014, for the album of the same name, which was released on May 13, 2014. Rascal Flatts admitted they were lip-syncing to a recording of their song “Rewind” during Academy of Country Music (ACM) awards show on April 6, 2014. In response to the controversy, Rascal Flatts communicated afterwards that lead singer Gary LeVox had lost his voice and so they made a last minute decision to lip-sync. Rewind has produced three more singles: “Payback”, which peaked at 21, “Riot”, which peaked at 20, and “I Like the Sound of That” released to country radio on September 14, 2015.
