Luckily, the guys are headed to Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City in early March, but no stops are planned for this area on the tour set to kick off in June. The closest venue to us would be the PNC Bank Arts Center.

The news was confirmed on the Rascal Flatts website this morning with both Gary and Jay commenting on the band's decision to say goodbye.

“When we started out 20 years ago, we could not imagine all of the people, places and gifts we would encounter. The greatest feeling ever, is being told that our music has been the soundtrack to their lives. What greater gift can an artist receive than to be told ‘I got married to “Bless The Broken Road,”’ or ‘We played “My Wish” at my graduation.’ That ‘“What Hurts The Most” is the song that made me love country music for the first time,’ or ‘“I’m Movin’ On” helped me get sober’ or even that ‘“Changed” made me call my family again after not talking to them for years.’ That’s why we create music and the reason we can’t wait to celebrate this incredible 20 year journey all year, with our fans who we love dearly. I don’t know what God has in store for the future, but I am excited to see what he has planned!”

- Gary Levox

Jay DeMarcus says it's not easy to walk away, but it's time.

“We’re really looking forward to getting to spend this entire year loving on our fans, and thanking them for allowing us to have the most amazing career over the last 20 years,” shared Jay DeMarcus. “While it is of course bittersweet, it is so important to us to celebrate what our music has meant to their lives, as well as what the fans have meant to us. There is no sadness here, just new chapters, new journeys, and new beginnings. Rascal Flatts’ music will live on forever, because of our fans, and this year is all about them!”

- Jay DeMarcus
