Rascal Flatts‘ Gary LeVox has opened up about the end of the country trio and the departure of longtime member Joe Don Rooney.
In a recent interview with People, LeVox said, “I’ve never been okay with the way that it ended. I was never okay with.”
He then added, “I wasn’t happy that Joe Don [Rooney] quit.”
Last year, LeVox, Rooney and Jay DeMarcus, the trio behind hits like “Bless The Broken Road,” “Life Is A Highway,” “What Hurts The Most,” “My Wish,” “I Like The Sound Of That” and more, appeared on “CBS This Morning” and announced that their 20th anniversary tour would also be the official farewell tour for Rascal Flatts.
However, the tour was canceled due to COVID-19 pandemic and the dates were never rescheduled.
“It kind of came out of nowhere,” LeVox shared. “It was like, ‘Let me try to wrap my head around this.’ And then I certainly wasn’t okay with the pandemic, which canceled everything. I hate the way that it ended. I hate that we didn’t get to do this farewell tour. I can’t stand the fact that it just feels there’s no closure with something that we’ve been so blessed with. That will always be in my heart.”
After the break up, the trio have pursued solo careers, with LeVox releasing the recent Christian album One on One, while DeMarcus released a tribute to his late father with “Music Man.”
