Rascal Flatts' newest album, Changed

Rascal Flatts' newest album, Changed, hit stores on April 3rd. The trio, comprised of singer Gary LeVox, bassist Jay DeMarcus and guitarist Joe Don Rooney, have evolved after being in the spotlight as some of country music's biggest superstars.

Changed is their eighth studio album and their first with brand new material in two years. Since their musical debut in 2000, the band has sold over 21 million albums, 25 million digital downloads and delivered 13 #1 singles to the top of the charts!
Changed is full of the band's high-gloss harmonies, songs that speak to our hearts, and above all, their desire to push themselves to bring more to the table with each record.
I have been a Rascal Flatts fan for many years.  I first saw them live when they were still an opening act.  And while I didn't actually see the headliner of that concert (it was Toby Keith) because I was pregnant, hot and end up feeling too awful to stand up to see from our fabulous main level seats, I thought Rascal Flatts stole the show.  
And all these years later (about 10 to be exact) I still love them and this album is no exception.  It took me a couple listens for this one because I tried listening to it at work and have to keep it turned down real low.  But once I was able to crank it up some...love!  I think this is a no brainer if you're a fan.  They just have a sound that you either love or...well I don't know what else there is. You SHOULD love them!! They are fun but they also have some great lyrics to go with their catchy tunes.  Whether you're in love or heartbroken, you'll find something you can identify with on this album.  This is a perfect roll the windows down and crank up the radio while you drive around kind of album.  
The only thing that could be better is if I could see them in concert again.  Check out the Rascal Flatts Tour Dates to see if they are coming to a city near you.  I was sooo jealous when I found out they would be at Blissdom.  Especially since I said this was the year I was going to go...maybe next year I'll make it to Blissdom.  Racal Flatts will also be hitting SummerFest this summer but I just don't think I'll be making it.  So maybe next year for them too....

How about you are you a die hard Rascal Flatts fan?
