A growing trend in country music recently seems to be getting back to the roots and the heart of the genre. Rascal Flatts have done just that with their tenth studio album Back to Us. The ten track LP features the trio's signature dynamic harmonies on uptempo songs that will fit perfectly into the bands' energetic live show.
Back to Us is the band's latest single “Yours If You Want It." The catchy chorus will have fans singing along:
"And every bit of love left in this beat up, banged up, scarred up heart / That's been waitin' on a girl like you / I know it ain't much, but it comes alive with every touch / Every kiss already feels like you own it / Baby, it's yours if you want it." The single is currently climbing its way up the country Billboard charts.
A highlight on the LP is "Are You Happy Now," a duet with Lauren Alaina who just had her first number one hit with “Road Less Traveled." Alaina's powerhouse vocals are a perfect match for Gary LeVox who is known for his incredible vocal ability on the song, which covers a popular break up theme:

“What goes around comes back around / it's been that way forever / baby just look at you now / barely holdin' it together / we were so in love / but you gave that up just look around / are you happy now?"
The album as a whole is catchy and upbeat, country music fans who have loved Rascal Flatts for years will appreciate the throwback sound Back to Us showcases. Even the slower moments are tender, touching on familiar stories of heartbreak. After seventeen years as a band, they prove with this project that they know exactly what will draw their listeners in and the ingredients for a successful album.
