When I think back to the country music I loved in 2000, two words say it all: Rascal Flatts.
I’d never heard of them, and then voila, I couldn’t stop hearing about them.
Their debut single “Prayin’ for Daylight” seemed to come out of nowhere. It was so cool to watch a brand new band become kind of an overnight sensation.
“We were just hoping ’Prayin’ for Daylight’ wasn’t a complete flop,” he said. “Selling a million records wasn’t even in our wildest thoughts.”
But it wasn’t until about a year and a-half — and three singles later — that DeMarcus felt really confident in the group’s future.
“I remember when ’I’m Moving On’ came out and we got the response we did, I thought, ’Man, this could be for real,’” DeMarcus said. “That was the first time it dawned on me what we had.”
