Over the last decade, Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus, and Joe Don Rooney of Rascal Flatts
have become the most-awarded vocal group in country music. With more than 20 million
albums sold, 25 million digital downloads, and six of Billboard's Top 100 Country
Albums of the Decade, Rascal Flatts continues to shatter concert-attendance records
and produce award-winning songs. At their core is the three-way friendship and musical
partnership dedicated to making records they would want to listen to and putting
on shows they would want to attend.
"There's never been a method to our madness," says Joe Don. "We just cut the best
songs we can, and through the years we get better at what we do."
"It's just beyond measure," says Gary. "We get to touch people's lives through music.
There's no greater gift in the world, and we love it today more than when we got
the record deal in '99. We're planning to be around for a long time."
Born into one of New Orleans' most celebrated families, Aaron was the first Neville
to burn his way up the national charts. His vocal talents and musical stylings have
earned him two Grammys® in duets with Linda Ronstadt, "Don't Know Much" and "All
My Life," both top-ten hits, as well as 16 Grammy nominations in categories as diverse
as country and western, pop, R&B, and gospel. His most recent work draws its inspiration
and power from the events happening around him, most notably in New Orleans.
"This is a strange moment in my career," muses Aaron. "Since Katrina I've devoted
months and months to benefit concerts—and that's been a blessing. My profile and
the profiles of my brothers have been raised by the storm. People all over the world
see us as the face of New Orleans. They want to hear us play. They want to feel
that we've survived the storm. They want to be assured that life goes on."
