Rascal Flatts Is Doing a Farewell Tour, But They’re Not Going Away for Good

RASCAL FLATTS announced yesterday on “CBS This Morning” that they’re launching a farewell tour this summer.  But when asked what “farewell” means, they didn’t give a straight answer.

GARY LEVOX said it means they haven’t had a break in 20 years, and JOE DON ROONEY called it a “thank you for all these years.”

JAY DEMARCUS did open the door a little, saying, “We make music, and that’s what we do.  And we may do it again someday collectively, [but] we’re not gonna sign some pact that says we’re never gonna tour again or anything like that.”

So, no, this isn’t the end.  Anyway, the “Rascal Flatts Farewell:  Life Is A Highway Tour” will kick-off June 11th in Indianapolis, and wraps October 17th in West Palm Beach, Florida.  They’re also releasing new music this year, but no word when.
