Rascal Flatts has been around for quite a while, what since like 2000…almost 17 years now and this is the VERY FIRST Christmas album they have ever done. They told Billboard “We had enough time off in the summer that it worked out perfect,” guitarist Joe Don Rooney reveals. “We were between country projects.” He goes on to explain that they hired conductor and arranger Tim Akers to help them with the project and to go into the studio with “no rules.” “We were taking a no-holds-barred kind of approach,” Rooney continues. “He sent us back little work tapes, of just him on the piano and some charts…[and] it was exactly what we wanted to do.” The Greatest Gift of All is available now.
Here is one of the songs off their Christmas Album- Joy to the World, that they performed at CMA Country Christmas a few weeks ago.
