Friday Favorites: Rascal Flatts

I just mentioned on here the other day that I love music. It can bring me out of a funk, calm my soul, and infuse me with energy. And, as the weather gets warmer, the music pumping through my house and car becomes more frequent. And louder. And, oh I just need to go dancing!

While I pretty much love most types of music, I’ve always been a country girl at heart {hello, born & raised in Northern Michigan}. You can have your boy bands. Give me a country band and a little banjo. And it doesn’t hurt that this particular country band is made up of some fine looking fellows.

I had the privilege of seeing Rascal Flatts perform live while at Blissdom in Nashville. They were ah-mazing! Although I wish they had performed longer. I could have stood at the front of the stage gazing up at them for a few more hours.

They captured me way back in 2000 with “I’m Moving On” (released again in 2008). Again in 2004 {like most women across the country} when they released “Bless the Broken Road“. And then my girls decided they were super awesome when they sang “Life Is A Highway” for Disney’s Cars.

So, when Rascal Flatts released their latest album, Changed, earlier this month, well of course I knew I was going to love it!

Banjo” is the perfect Summer day, windows down, feet on the dashboard kind-of a song. “Come Wake Me Up” makes me fall in love with them all over again. And “Next to You, Next to Me” (available on the Deluxe Edition on iTunes)? Oh my word, it takes me instantly back to high school. Sitting in my bedroom, listening to Shenandoah, mending a broken heart and “falling” in love.

How they managed to wrap all of that into one album…amazing.

If you were a fan of Rascal Flatts before, you’ll definitely love Changed. If you have yet to experience Rascal Flatts, what are you waiting for… go download this album. Now. And, if you’re sitting there pretending that you don’t like or listen to country music, then you’re a fool. Yup. I said it. Your loss.

Now, for those of you who are fans, you’ll want to check out this fun contest! Two lucky fans will get to see Rascal Flatts during their American Band tour this Summer (includes airfare, hotel, tickets, meet & greet passes). Be sure to enter before April 30th. Or don’t enter…because that’s better odds for me {kidding. kind of. not really.}

Again, Changed is available now (in-store and online). Go, rock out! You’ll love it!
