Rascal Flatts Celebrate Latest No. 1

Rascal Flatts lead vocalist Gary LeVox joined his co-writers, Neil Thrasher and Wendell Mobley, to celebrate the group’s most recent No. 1 single, “Fast Cars and Freedom.” Rascal Flatts guitarist-vocalist Joe Don Rooney also attended Wednesday’s (Aug. 17) festivities at ASCAP’s office on Music Row in Nashville. “Fast Cars and Freedom,” from the album Feels Like Today, enjoyed a three-week run at No. 1. LeVox thanked Thrasher and Mobley, acknowledging they should get all the credit for the song. Executives from Major Bob Music, the company that published the song, presented the writers with car hoods specially painted to commemorate their achievement. Rascal Flatts return to the road Friday (Aug. 19) in support of its Here’s to You tour. This is the second weekend of tour stops since the band returned from a USO tour of the Persian Gulf.
