Rascal Flatts Changed CD Review and Flyaway Contest

You may have noticed this widget in my sidebar, and I thought I would let you know a little bit more about why it is there.

I became a fan of Rascal Flatts when I first heard them sing in the First Cars movie:  "Life is a Highway."  I liked the song, and I enjoyed the video.  And, my daughter, became a big time fan of theirs.  So I thought I would check them out.  I bought a CD or two, and I really enjoyed their songs.

Some time after that, I noticed a change I did not like in the group.  Their music did not seem to be of the same caliber.  I noticed that the lead singer became rather heavy (I'm not complaining--I was actually concerned about his health), and his hair stuck up higher and higher each time I saw him.  I also found that every song they were singing featured their lead singer straining to sing notes that were too high for him.

About a year ago (give or take), I heard that they had switched recording companies, and they were now with Big Machine Records, the same company as Taylor Swift.  I began to notice a change.  It seemed that the lead singer had lost weight, and his hair was under control.  Their sound was better, and their song choice was pretty good.  I began to like the songs they were singing.

A couple weeks ago, they performed on Dancing With the Stars, and I was impressed with their song "Changed."  One thing I had initially appreciated about them was that they often sang songs that meant something.  And this was a definite return to that style.  I got on Amazon and instantly ordered their new CD which I have not stopped playing in my car's stereo since it arrived!

Their new CD Changed is a return to what Rascal Flatts does best.  No straining, songs that mean something, and country-infused rock/pop songs!  My favorite song is still "Changed," but I also love "Banjo" amongst others.  

There is also a contest, as I mentioned.  Here's the info about that.

About the Flyaway Contest
One lucky winner and their guest will be treated to two tickets and meet-and-greet passes to see Rascal Flatts on their summer American Band Tour kicking off in June with Eli Young Band, Little Big Town and Edens Edge.
