ACM Awards Vocal Group of the Year nominee Rascal Flatts showcase their comedic chops today for the premiere of their new music video for “Yours If You Want It.”
The group enlisted friend Billy Zabka (Karate Kid, Most), who previously collaborated on their “Why Wait” music video, to direct them in the nostalgia-spirited and hilarious scenes. Gary Levox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney transformed into diner employees as actors Kevin Farley (The Waterboy, Still The King) and Kristy Swanson (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, The Chase) surprise viewers with a whirlwind romance.
Befitting of the trio, who recently announced the May 19 release of their tenth studio album BACK TO US (Big Machine Records), the video shoot offered a full circle moment shooting at The Hermitage Cafe in Nashville. The location marked the spot of Rascal Flatts’ first photo shoot of their esteemed career.
“We had so much fun filming this video, and I think that really shows when you watch it back,” said Gary. “The three of us are always joking around so when our good friend Billy came up with the idea for us to actually work at the diner where Kevin and Kristy’s scene is playing out, we definitely went for it! The atmosphere on set was amazing and hopefully everyone enjoys watching it as much as we did making it.”
A force to be reckoned with in any genre, the upcoming release of BACK TO US comes hot on the heels of the success of Rascal Flatts’ 16th No. 1 hit “I Like The Sound Of That,” from REWIND. The album 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. Known as one of the hottest-selling touring acts in any genre, the trio also recently celebrated a major milestone of 10 million tickets sold, following a rousing year stacked of headlining shows.
