A Family Affair
Although all three of the members of Rascal Flatts are from Columbus, Ohio, the band was founded at the Fiddle and Steel Guitar Bar in Nashville, Tenn. Jay DeMarcus moved to Nashville in 1992 and signed his first record deal as a member of the Christian group East to West. Soon after, Jay began producing Michael English's album, Gospel, and convinced his second cousin, Gary LeVox, to join him in Nashville so that he could sing harmonies on the album. DeMarcus was also the bandleader for Chely Wright's band at the time where he met Joe Don Rooney. While Gary and Jay were working at a Printer's Alley club one night, their guitarist couldn't make the show, so Jay asked Joe Don Rooney if he would join them for the set. The group sang Shenandoah's "The Church on Cumberland Road" and felt an instant bond form. Over the years, Rascal Flatts has seen 14 of its 25 singles reach the No. 1 spot on Billboard's Hot Country Songs or Country Airplay lists.
