Rascal Flatts is coming off a number one single last year. That’s pretty cool. These guys are now going into their 18th year, I think, in country music. I remember back in 2000 when I bought their first record. It seems like a long time ago.
They’ve been able to do something pretty rare in country music and that is to keep making popular music. They have stayed true to their sound while also changing with the times. It’s a delicate balance. I don’t know the secret. Maybe they don’t know it either, but whatever they’re doing it’s working.
Here is their next single off what should be a new album for 2017. It sounds like a hit to me.
Yours If You Want It – Rascal Flatts
It’s just a pretty straight ahead love song about a guy that’s ready to give all of himself to the girl he loves. Everything he has including his love and affection is all for the girl if she’s willing to take the jump with him.
This is obviously a pretty uptempo song. It fits right in with many songs that Rascal Flatts have done in the past. It actually has a little bit of an arena rock feel to it. Maybe that’s just me being weird, but it sounds like something that Journey would have released back in the ’80s.
Anyway, it’s a great song for the Flatts. They just keep on going with their career and it’s great for country fans. They have their longtime fans and I’m sure they’re still picking up new ones with each new single.
