Rascal Flatts ' catalog features stone cold country songs like "Mayberry" as well as the more pop/rock vibe of "Life Is a Highway" and "Easy." The band's Joe Don Rooney loves that all of those different sounds fit in today's country music landscape.
He tells The Wichita Eagle , "We’ve been around when country has changed more than at any time in its history. You can add different elements to it, and that just didn’t happen in country a generation or two ago."
That freedom to bring in elements of other genres keeps things interesting for Rascal Flatts too.
"I think that makes it more fun," Joe Don says. "It’s definitely been good for us.”
Rascal Flatts will play a ton of their diverse hits Thursday, August 15 in Detroit.
