Rascal Flatts share new single ahead of farewell EP

“Quick, Fast, In A Hurry” features Rachel Wammack

Superstar vocal group Rascal Flatts is giving fans another teaser for their upcoming How They Remember You EP, releasing the charming new track “Quick, Fast, In A Hurry” featuring newcomer Rachel Wammack. Co-written by Kelly Archer, AJ Babcock, Pete Good and Brandon Ratcliff the engaging urgency of the track is amplified by LeVox’s and Wammack’s harmonies. “Quick, Fast, In A Hurry” is from the trio’s forthcoming farewell EP, dropping July 31st via Big Machine Records.

“As soon as we heard this song, we knew we had to cut it,” shares Jay DeMarcus. “The chorus is so hooky and we instantly fell in love with it. And I just love how Gary and Rachel’s voices sound together on it. We’re excited for people to hear this one.”

Rascal Flatts just revealed the news that they will be releasing new music. A seven track project, the new EP will also include the trio’s new single and title track “How They Remember You” and a heartfelt rendition of Kenny Rogers’ “Through The Years.” The vocal group’s new single is already being praised as “the harmony vocals are arguably the finest they’ve ever recorded” (Music Row) with the track debuting at No. 24 on the Billboard Country Airplay and No. 31 on Mediabase/Country Aircheck charts and continuing to gain momentum.

With the trio co-producing tracks throughout the collection, Rascal Flatts’ beloved harmonies and innate ability to share universal messages is palpable on each song. Known for cherry-picking songs that define so much for so many, the EP also boasts a notable calibre of songwriters with tracks co-written by Thomas Rhett, Rhett Akins, Josh Osborne, Jesse Frasure, Ashley Gorley and more.

All told, the band has posted 17 No. 1 songs and sold more than 23 million albums since their founding in 2000, leaving an impact which outshines even their wildest ambitions. Their signature sound was like no other, with LeVox’s voice one of the most recognizable and dynamic of its era, while the rock-solid musicianship of DeMarcus and Rooney infused country tradition with a fresh new, arena-ready energy – helping pave the way for a wave of crossover appreciation still building today, as well as opening doors for so many other artists who followed.

“We opened the door for a lot of new artists doing the kind of music that you even hear today, twenty years later, ’cause there was no sound like the sound that we had when we came in in 2000,” the band shares during the broadcast.

The trio was set to embark on their final Rascal Flatts Farewell: Life is a Highway Tour, but was canceled due to COVID-19. The most awarded group of the past decade was set to kick off the trek in June to celebrate its 20th year together. Guests Chris Lane, Chase Rice, Avenue Beat, Caylee Hammack, King Calaway, Matt Stell and Rachel Wammack were set to join for the run that was to last through October.
