It all begins when the lights go down. For Gary LeVox, Joe Don Rooney and Jay DeMarcus, it has been that way since they were playing for a handful of people in a club in Nashville's Printers Alley. These days, of course, they play for thousands of screaming fans a night, drawn by state-of-the-art production and sound, and by spectacular vocal harmonies in service to an ever-expanding catalogue of hits. In between, it was the magic of those performances that catapulted Rascal Flatts into the front ranks of entertainers in all genres.

A lot of people might look at this band, and wonder why they're on New Release Tuesday. You're right, their music isn't OBVIOUSLY Christian. They don't spend all their time singing "How Great Is Our God," or, "Holy Holy Holy." They sing about love, drinking (in a few of their songs), and leaving. But they reach people through that. Sure, you might not like them, but someone needed to hear their song What Hurts The Most. Someone needed to hear It's Not Supposed To Go Like That. Maybe not you, but someone. And their music is a lifeline for me too. I've had dry spells in my faith, where their music kept me from losing it completely. So don't judge them without listening to the songs like, He ain't the leaving kind and Unstoppable.
