Trivia / Rascal Flatts

  • Chart Displacement:
    • "Prayin' for Daylight" is one of their most enduring songs, despite only hitting #3 at country radio. It's certainly better remembered than "Stand" or "Take Me There", at least.
    • Their cover of "Life Is a Highway" only got to #18 on the country charts, because it was not officially released as a single ("My Wish" was the current single at the time). However, it is one of their more popular recurrents, and it was an extremely popular download due to it being in Cars.
  • Executive Meddling: Lyric Street had pretty much hyperfocused on Rascal Flatts and ignored every other act on the label ever since the band scored its first #1 hit. This meant that several acts on the roster were unceremoniously dropped, had albums endlessly delayed, or were just not promoted.
  • He Also Did: Prior to the formation of Rascal Flatts, Jay DeMarcus has formed a short-lived Christian pop duo called East to West during the mid-1990s. DeMarcus has also produced albums by Kix Brooks, James Otto (his brother-in-law), and Chicago among others.
  • Throw It In!: After the line "Deep in my heart I know that you love me as much as I love you" in "Prayin' for Daylight", one of the other members mumbles, "You know I love you, girl."
  • What Could Have Been...:
    • Both LeVox and Rooney had originally auditioned to be in Little Big Town.
    • "Take Me There" was co-written by Kenny Chesney, but he decided not to record it.
