Feels Like Today (Lyric Street, 2004)

Rascal Flatts

Reviewed by Rick Bell

Rascal Flatts has accomplished a lot with just two records to their credit - awards, a fan base and a career on the upswing.

Album number three only adds to an already stellar stable of pop country songs. From the flat-out, wind-in-your-hair feel of "Oklahoma-Texas Line," written by the Rascal Flatts trio of bassist Jay DeMarcus, lead singer Gary Levox and guitarist Joe Don Rooney, to pity thyself ballads like the incredibly weepy "Holes," the band is primed for another round of awards and headlining their first arena tour.

The trio's harmonies are as unique and tight as ever, and Mark Bright's production backs each song with the right dose of strings. Rascal Flatts adds a sing-along ballad - Marcus Hummon's tender "Bless the Broken Road." And Levox pulls it off to the hilt, virtually going solo and milking every meaningful word for all it's worth.
