With 16 career No. 1s to their name, superstar vocal group Rascal Flatts are continuing their reputation for infectious anthems, as USA TODAY offered the exclusive first listen of their new single, “Yours If You Want It,” highlighting the “sure-fire smash” for “its intense verses, rousing choruses and upbeat message.” Co-written by Andrew Dorff and Jonathan Singleton, the immediate sing-along was produced by Rascal Flatts, and spotlights the trio’s flawless harmonies throughout the altruistic ode.
The track, which is available everywhere today (Jan 6th), premiered on iHeartCountry Radio Stations nationwide. As fans have fervently anticipated new music from the trio, the refreshing track is the lead single taken from the group’s much-awaited forthcoming studio album.
The track follows the success of their summer anthem and Platinum-certified No. 1 hit “I Like The Sound Of That,” from their ninth studio album Rewind (Big Machine Records) which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart, making them one of only four acts during the SoundScan era to have eight consecutive studio albums debut in the top spot.
“We all felt like ‘Yours If You Want It’ was the perfect way to introduce our fans and radio to the new music we’ve been making,” said Jay DeMarcus. “We’ve been working really hard and we’re very proud of this track and what’s more, the late Andrew Dorff is a writer on it, and we are so honored to be a small part of making sure his legacy lives on. We have a special angel watching over it, for sure.”
Rascal Flatts is kicking off 2017 hot on the heels of the success of their first-ever Christmas album, The Greatest Gift Of All, that saw Chicago Sun Times declare that the group “put its signature stamp on a slew of Christmas classics” that “oozes rollicking holiday spirit.”
