ACM Awards Vocal Group of the Year Nominee Rascal Flatts revealed the official track list for their highly-anticipated tenth studio album BACK TO US (Big Machine Records) today. The collection is reminiscent of the trio’s distinct sound that catapulted their status as international superstars, while maintaining an edge that has kept them at the forefront of the genre. Rascal Flatts will release a 10-track standard album to all retailers, while a 13-track Deluxe album is available now for pre-order exclusively on Amazon.
With 12 of 13 tracks produced by the group – with bassist Jay DeMarcus taking the reigns – the album explores the powerful emotions of relationships with songwriting credits from the trio throughout, adding a personal depth to the release.
Stacked with multiple standout moments, including the vocally-driven collaboration with Lauren Alaina, “Are You Happy Now,” the trio also called upon songwriting powerhouses and friends Dan + Shay, alongside Cary Barlowe and Jesse Frasure for the optimistically, upbeat “Hopin’ You Were Lookin’” and Chris Stapleton, joined by Luke Laird, for the effervescent “Vandalized.” “Hands Talk” also welcomes red-hot producer busbee, who co-wrote and produced the track for the deluxe album.
Rascal Flatts will perform the album’s lead single, “Yours If You Want It” at the 52nd ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS airing live from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 2 on CBS at 8:00P ET. The infectious song is turning heads as “one of the fastest moving singles on country radio charts” (Entertainment Weekly) while Rolling Stone proclaims it “showcases the band’s vocal harmonies and knack for sing-along hooks.”
