10 Best Rascal Flatts Songs


With their 20 decades in the spotlight, Rascal Flatts have proven their guts in hit-making. In this article, we’re rounding up the band’s best songs of all time. 

The best Rascal Flatts songs are emotional and adventurous. So be careful in wearing your heart on your sleeve. These songs are most likely to get stuck in your head for weeks. 

1. “Bless the Broken Road”

From ‘Feels Like Today’ (2004)

The top Rascal Flatts song has to be about love. But the band sings about this topic almost all the time. So how did we choose this as the best one? Easy. This 2004 hit still has its resounding mushy highlight at live shows and the fans are still here for it. 

This chart-topping hit gives everyone that somber/loner moment and honestly, this song is cathartic at some point. 

2. “I’m Movin’ On”

From ‘Rascal Flatts’ (2000)

Rascal Flatts bagged their only ACM award, all thanks to this ‘moving on’ anthem. “I’m Moving On” is their 2003 ballad hit that offers the right blend of poignant lyrics and captivating vocals. If we’re honest, the song tells a story of almost every listener out there and that’s the beauty of this piece. 

Aside from this, it’s the song that established the band as a bunch of capable singers ready to take on the center stage with their heartfelt country songs.

3. “What Hurts the Most”

From ‘Me and My Gang’ (2006)

Mark Wills sang this song in 2003. The Rascal Flatts covered it and without a doubt, made it a hit. Talk to any country music lover out there who has to pick a breakup song and this should come up. 

It’s one of the best ones yet, and the country charts agree. It belonged to the Top 10 on Pop charts and it remains at No.1 for multiple weeks in country charts.

4. “Life Is a Highway”

From the ‘Cars’ Soundtrack (2006)

This song isn’t an original. However, “Life Is a Highway” became a Platinum single of the trio. It belonged in the Pixar movie called “Cars.” The song also bagged the award Favorite Song at the 33rd People’s Choice Awards. 

Fans agree that it feels as though the band made the song their own. It proved how they are capable of singing beyond their usual country tunes.

5. “Prayin’ for Daylight”

From ‘Rascal Flatts’ (2000)

It’s their first single and it was a Top 5 hit. As easy as that, “Prayin’ for Daylight” put this trio on the country music map. Even fans outside their niche genre were delighted. After this single, they continued producing singles that always hit the Top 10.

6. “Banjo”

From ‘Changed’ (2012)

If you’re a true Rascal Flatts fan, you’d agree that “Banjo” deserves more. It’s a No.1 song in the charts, but it didn’t always belong in the band’s best songs. Until recently, this song captured audiences into its spectacular rhythm and lyrics. It’s a piece of feel-good country music that would amuse any listener.

7. “Skin”

From ‘Feels Like Today’ (2004)

“Skin” was an album cut. It’s been hidden until a radio DJ has it a few tries for weeks. After that, the rest was history. This song made the top charts and it captivated the audience so much that the band decided to release it as a single. 

Before 2005 closed, almost all country music enthusiasts would have shed a tear or two while enjoying this song. That’s a rough claim but we all know it landed as a top 5 hit.

8. “I Melt”

From ‘Melt’ (2002)

While most of the songs on our list are romantic, sweet, and innocent, this one begs to differ. “I Melt” comes with a steamy MV which fans loved. This Top 5 hit was written in 2003 and at that time, Joe Don Rooney’s bare butt was a sight to watch. 

There wasn’t too much airtime for that particular frame but it was enough to make the song more interesting.

9. “I Like the Sound of That”

From ‘Rewind’ (2014)

The song is from Rascal Flatt’s Rewind album which Shay Mooney and Meghan Trainor helped pen. The song was an easy No. 1 with its arrangement that kicks along as LeVox mesmerized the audience with his long vocals. It’s different from the past Flatts hits especially how the harmonic chorus hit. 

10. “Summer Nights”

From ‘Unstoppable’ (2009)

With its carefree charm and youthful message, “Summer Nights” almost seemed like it was featured in High School Musical. But it’s not. This 2009 Top 5 masterpiece sounded great when it first came out. Country critics would agree that it still sounds great today especially when performed live.

As the trio announced their Farewell Tour back in 2020, the fans had their chance at reminiscing the band’s best hits. However, Rascal Flatts was quick to clarify that they’ll keep on making songs in the future and that the tour was just to thank every supporter through the years.
