Rascal Flatts will celebrate its 20th anniversary with a farewell tour. The country trio announced its Rascal Flatts Farewell: Life Is a Highway Tour during an appearance Tuesday morning (Jan. 7) on CBS This Morning. While the band skirted the question of saying goodbye for good, they instead said the tour is simply a thank you to its fans.

“We make music and that’s what we do,” Jay DeMarcus said during the band’s visit to CBS This Morning. “We may do it again someday collectively. We’re not going to sign some pact that says we’re never going to tour again … we all still do love each other, but we do make music and we will probably make some music individually, collectively.”

In addition to the tour, the band promises new music is also on the way in 2020. The tour will kick off on June 11 in Indianapolis and run through October. Tickets will be available as part of the Live Nation Country Megaticket. More information will be available at rascalflatts.com in the coming weeks. 

"?When we started out 20 years ago, we could not imagine all of the people, places and gifts we would encounter,” said Gary LeVox. "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!”
