Rascal Flatts will release a brand new single, titled “Banjo”, to Country radio today for airplay impact beginning January 17. The song will serve as the first single off the band’s forthcoming album due out this spring. Listen to “Banjo” HERE!
Jay explains the song as, “a sentiment about getting away from it all, getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and sort of breaking out and finding a spot way out in the country and drivin’ and drivin’ and drivin’ until you go so far you start to hear a banjo.” Joe Don feels like the song taps into a bit of a different sound for the band but he loves it and he thinks the fans will too because “it’s got that raw countriness to it that’s just so fun.” And he also thinks once Rascal Flatts starts playing it live the fans will latch onto it. “I think everybody by the first chorus will get it, they’ll be singing along to it and it’s just fun stuff.” “Banjo” will officially hit radio on January 17th, although it will be available beginning January 9th.
Fans will get the chance to hear their favorite band live as the guys hit the road this week on their winter tour, Thaw Out 2012, which kicks off in Charleston, West Virginia, at the Charleston Civic Center Coliseum with Sara Evans and Hunter Hayes.
