Rascal Flatts to Disband After “Farewell Tour” in 2020

Rascal Flatts to Disband After “Farewell Tour” in 2020

Country trio Rascal Flatts—comprised of Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney—announced they will hit the road this summer for their Rascal Flatts Farewell: Life Is a Highway Tour.

The trio visited CBS This Morning on Jan. 7 to make the announcement. The guys revealed they will disband after the tour to tackle individual projects, but they left the door open to reunite.

“When we started out 20 years ago, we could not imagine all of the people, places and gifts we would encounter,” said Gary. “The greatest feeling ever, is being told that our music has been the soundtrack to their lives . . . That’s why we create music and the reason we can’t wait to celebrate this incredible 20 year journey all year, with our fans who we love dearly. I don’t know what God has in store for the future, but I am excited to see what He has planned!”

“We’re really looking forward to getting to spend this entire year loving on our fans, and thanking them for allowing us to have the most amazing career over the last 20 years,” shared Jay. “While it is of course bittersweet, it is so important to us to celebrate what our music has meant to their lives, as well as what the fans have meant to us. There is no sadness here, just new chapters, new journeys, and new beginnings. Rascal Flatts’ music will live on forever, because of our fans, and this year is all about them.”

“Dreams do come true . . . and we are three walking examples of this truth,” said Joe Don. “I’m most proud of the fact that we’ve pursued our dreams together and with courage, hard-work and dedication we’ve been able to cultivate our dreams into reality—it’s simply incredible! There’s no doubt we have been blessed way beyond belief and we can’t wait to spend the rest of 2020 expressing our love and appreciation to all of our devoted fans, music industry friends and our families for believing in us and playing a major role in our path to here. And, I personally can’t wait to shine a light on my brothers Jay and Gary this year, and make another mountain of new memories with them.”

The Farewell Tour will kick off on June 11 in Indianapolis, making additional stops in Chicago, Dallas, Atlanta and more.
