Rascal Flatts: Used by Permission
Superstar vocal group Rascal Flatts yesterday (January 22nd) announced their plans for the Rewind Tour 2014. The most-awarded Country group of the past decade, who has become ubiquitous with massive tours, will hit the road on May 16 with special guest multiple Grammy Award winner Sheryl Crow. Rising hot trio Gloriana has been tapped to open the shows.
“Gary, Joe Don and I are really excited about 2014! Brand new music, and a brand new tour called, Rewind. We’re thrilled to have our good friend Sheryl Crow out with us. Expect some great musical moments and surprises! And we’re proud to have Gloriana opening. This is gonna be a show you don’t wanna miss!” said bassist Jay DeMarcus. Last year, Rascal Flatts played to over one million fans and hit a career milestone with over 7 million concert tickets sold.
In celebration of the new tour and their latest offering, “Rewind,” the guys have been revisiting their beginnings with visits to Country radio stations nationwide and giving Forbes Life magazine a Nashville tour, even stopping by the Fiddle and Steel Guitar Bar in Printer’s Alley where they first played together. The best-selling Country vocal group of the past decade has sold over 22.5 million albums and over 28 million digital downloads since their musical debut in 2000 and have delivered 14 No.1 singles to the top of the charts. Rascal Flatts also have the distinction of being one of only four acts during the SoundScan era to have seven consecutive studio albums debut at No.1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart.
On March 4, fans will get a taste of the fresh sound and rewind back in time with some previously released tunes in advance of their forthcoming Big Machine Records album this Summer. The Walmart exclusive EP will feature “Rewind,” “Why Wait,” “Come Wake Me Up” and the unreleased “Dancing On My Grave.” These songs and more will also be included on the Rewind Tour 2014 setlists.
