This List of Rascal Flatts Songs Will Surely Give You An Emotional Ride

10 Best Rascal Flatts Songs
by

Guess we can all agree that there’s no bigger act in country music than this chart-topping trio composed by Jay DeMarcus, Joe Don Rooney, and Gary LeVox. Rascal Flatts songs are even being hailed to be among the most influential hits in the genre’s history. 

So it was truly disheartening that after two decades, Rascal Flatts announced that they’d be stepping out of the limelight. While the three members revealed that they have individual plans to continue working in music, many fans’ hearts were still shattered. 

With that in mind, we’re giving you Rascal Flatts‘ greatest hits of all time that you should add to your playlist. Keep on scrolling below.

1. “Bless the Broken Road”

From: Feels Like Today (2004)

Isn’t it amazing how heartbreak and disappointment often lead someone to find true love? But for Rascal Flatts, “Bless the Broken Road” led them to their longest-lasting No. 1 single – occupying the top spot of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart for five weeks.

Several artists recorded the song, but it was Rascal Flatts’ version that helped its songwriters earn a Grammy Award for Best Country Song.

2. “These Days”

From: Melt (2002)

Released as the lead single from the band’s second studio album, the bittersweet story about a man running into a past love and confessing that he still thinks of her often turned out to be Rascal Flatts’ first single to reach the No. 1 spot on the charts.

3. “Mayberry”

From: Melt (2002)

This feel-good song will surely make you long for the simpler days. It uses the quiet, fictional town of Mayberry from the 1960s television show, The Andy Griffith Show, to showcase the joy of living a slower pace of life.

4.  “Skin”

From: Feels Like Today (2004)

Rascal Flatts definitely has a knack for stirring up their listener’s emotions, and “Skin” is one great example of that. The poignant ballad tells the story of a high school girl from Kentucky named Sarabeth – who just found out that she has cancer.

5. “What Hurts the Most”

From: Me and My Gang (2006)

Though it was originally recorded by country singer Mark Wills in 2003, it was Rascal Flatts who made it a hit – with Gary LeVox’s soaring vocals bringing it all the way to the top of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. “What Hurts the Most” also peaked at No. 6 on Billboard Hot 100 – making it the band’s first top 10 pop hit.

6. “I’m Movin’ On”

From: Rascal Flatts (2001)

Indeed, music is sometimes all we need to heal our soul. So, it was no surprise when countless fans – whatever challenges they were facing – turned to the inspirational lyrics of “I’m Movin’ On.” 

7. “Prayin’ for Daylight”

From: Rascal Flatts (2001)

The world was first introduced to Rascal Flatts with the release of their debut single, “Prayin’ for Daylight.” Though the song was upbeat and somewhat goofy, it tells the tale of a man who has not been able to sleep since his lover left him.

8. “Rewind”

From: Rewind (2014)

DeMarcus described the song – which they produced by themselves for the first time – as “a good way to bridge the gap between familiar Rascal Flatts and a new era of Rascal Flatts.” The love song tells the story of a man who wishes that he could once again experience the first time he met his lover. 

9. “Take Me There”

From: Still Feels Good (2007)

Co-written by Kenny Chesney, the country star revealed that he dropped the song as “it didn’t feel like it was meant to be on my record.” Rascal Flatts picked it up and took it to the top spot of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.

10. “I Like the Sound of That”

From: Rewind (2014)

Rascal Flatts often reinvent themselves, but they make sure they keep it true to the style their fans enjoy – and “I Like the Sound of That” exemplifies that.

11. “Banjo”

From: Changed (2012)

Written by Rascal Flatts’ frequent collaborator Neil Thrasher and Wendell Mobley, the up-tempo ballad finds LeVox inviting his lover to get away with him to a faraway place that can’t be found on the map.

12. “I Melt”

From: Melt (2002)

This sultry, sexy yet irresistible song comes with a music video that’s even more steamy – and, well, controversial. In fact, “I Melt” was banned by the Great American Channel (GAC) due to nudity.

13. “Me and My Gang”

From: Me and My Gang (2006)

Released as the title track from the band’s fourth studio album – which was the best selling country album of 2006 – this electric guitar-heavy song always gets fans on their feet, especially during live shows.

14. “Changed”

From: Changed (2012)

The band took a roundabout route from their usual kind of song to release this Christian-themed ballad. “Changed” came about from a true story told by its co-writer Neil Thrasher following his daughter’s baptism on the beach.

15. “Stand”

From: Me and My Gang (2007)

Rascal Flatts closed their fourth studio album with this inspiring song about how we all face obstacles in our lives but always conquer them and move on – something we all need today.
