After an extraordinary week that included a record-breaking seventh consecutive Vocal Group of the Year win at the Academy of Country Music Awards, the release of their sixth studio album, Unstoppable, media appearances in the eastern and pacific time zones and more than 27 hours of interviews with country radio, Rascal Flatts’ Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney awoke this morning to learn their latest single “Here Comes Goodbye” leapt from #6 to #1 to become the most played country record in America on the Billboard/R&R and Mediabase/Country Aircheck charts. “Here Comes Goodbye” is the band’s tenth chart-topping single.
“With everything this past week has brought we are blown away to have our tenth #1 single with ‘Here Comes Goodbye’” said Jay DeMarcus “and are so thankful to country radio and the fans for all their support.”
Rascal Flatts is also poised to score another #1 this week as their new CD Unstoppable is in position to debut at #1 on both the Country and Top 200 sales charts. Living out their new album’s title, Racal Flatts will appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on April 13 and Dancing With The Stars on Tuesday, April 14 plus the Late Show with David Letterman and Fox News Channel’s Hannity on Thursday, April 16.
Unstoppable, co-produced by Dann Huff and Rascal Flatts, is the band’s first studio album since 2007’s multi-platinum Still Feels Good.
