Me and My Gang finds Rascal Flatts again drawing on many of Nashville's finest writers, including Jeffrey Steele, Neil Thrasher, Tony Mullins, Wendell Mobley, Jason Sellers and Monty Powell. The group has also co-written three of the CD's songs, with Joe Don contributing "Cool Thing," Jay "To Make Her Love Me" and all three "Pieces." They continue to up their level of musical involvement, with Jay playing bass throughout and Joe Don playing every guitar part on the record.

Led off by the Jeffrey Steele / Steve Robson-penned smash, "What Hurts The Most," Me and My Gang finds the trio yet again reaching new heights. "Working with Dan Huff (producer) brought us to a new level," says LeVox. "Collectively we feel this is the strongest album we've done to date," says Rooney. "Lyrically, melodically and emotionally this record took us to another place. We are excited to bring this new music to the fans."

This bonus edition features Flatts' smash hit from the Cars> soundtrack "Life is A Highway."

Muze PNote Nashville-based country-pop superstars Rascal Flatts can seemingly do no wrong. Their first three albums sold remarkably well on the strength of the band's streamlined, commercially oriented sound and penchant for swelling, heart-tugging ballads. ME AND MY GANG, the group's fourth release, delivers more of the same, which promises to suit the band's legions of fans just fine.
Muze PNote The album's lead-off single, "What Hurts the Most," is a case-in-point for Rascal Flatt's winning formula: a ballad-tempo number with a lilting verse, sweetened by the group's patented harmonies, that segues into a soaring, heartrending chorus about love and loss. "Along the Broken Road," a tale of love's difficulties, strikes a similarly familiar emotional and stylistic chord. That Rascal Flatts' songs sound as comfortable on mainstream pop radio as they do on country stations is a testament to the band's crossover appeal, and ME AND MY GANG delivers on that appeal in spades.

Bio

Rascal Flatts

By any measure, Rascal Flatts is in elite territory. In 2005, the group earned its third consecutive ACM and CMA Vocal Group of the Year awards, and added Billboard and R&R Artist of the Year trophies as well. The trio also picked up its first three Grammy nominations, and their "Bless The Broken Road" received the Grammy for Country Song of the Year. Rascal Flatts was the most played artist on country radio in 2005, spending ten weeks at #1 on the radio singles charts.

As they have grown musically, they have continued to reach personal milestones. Gary is married, with two daughters, Brittany, 6, and Brooklyn, 2. Jay married a former Miss Tennessee in 2004, and Joe Don has wedding plans this year. Their growth as people is reflected in the ever-increasing depth of their music, and they are enjoying both the effort and the rewards.
