Gary LeVox of Rascal Flatts offers the first collection of his solo career, filled with incredible collaborations, breath-taking vocals, and an inspiring message. One on One is available now, May 21st, on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new music.
Gary LeVox is not only the frontman for one of the most influential and successful groups in country music history, Rascal Flatts, but he is also one of the most impressive vocalists and has one of the most identifiable voices in all of music. His name quite literally means, “The Voice” and it couldn’t be more deserving.
Founded in 2000 with bandmates Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney, Rascal Flatts scored 17 No. 1 singles, earned 40+ award show trophies (making them the most awarded country group of the last decade), and sold over 23 million albums and more than 11 million concert tickets. The group celebrated its farewell with Twenty Years of Rascal Flatts: The Greatest Hits in 2020, along with their hit single “How They Remember You”. After a 20 year career with Rascal Flatts, LeVox is pursuing a solo career and has just released his first solo project: One on One.
One on One combines two of LeVox’s biggest passions – music and faith. LeVox’s debut song “The Distance” embodies that mission, expressing the power of belief which is tailor-made for the COVID-19 era. The song is about resilience and LeVox feels the timing of the song is perfect. He shares that, “‘The Distance’ was the first song written for (his) solo chapter… with the struggles and battles so many have gone through this past year and how they’ve taken over people’s everyday lives, it just felt like the true song of hope we need.” Made for fans of both country and contemporary Christian music, “The Distance” is one of five tracks featured on LeVox’s Christian collection.
On the remaining four tracks, LeVox leaned on help from his ‘congregation’ to explore the power of faith and the calling of a higher power. Contemporary Christian hitmakers MercyMe join LeVox for “A Little Love”, GRAMMY-winning gospel talent Jonathan McReynolds for “Never Forget”, LeVox’s daughter Brittany for “While I Wait”, and country-rap trailblazer BRELAND for “All I See”.
On the collection, LeVox shares: “One On One is my passion project and I have wanted to do this body of work for as long as I can remember. I feel so honored to get to collaborate with such greatness throughout this project. BRELAND is a dream to work and sing with, as is the iconic MercyMe. Jonathon McReynolds, one of the greatest singers of our time and my dear friend, wrote a perfect song for us. And for my daughter Brittany and I to get to sing a song that Tauren Wells helped craft just completed the collection. I couldn’t be prouder of this project, and the songs that we recorded. This is gonna be an amazing new season and I just hope everybody enjoys it as much as we did making”
