Rascal Flatts will be releasing a new seven-song EP called How They Remember You on July 31st. The project includes their brand new single, which is the album's title track, as well as their version of Kenny Rogers' hit "Through The Years," which they performed during CMT's recent tribute to the late icon.
None of the the three had a hand in writing the song "How They Remember You," but Jay DeMarcus tells us it immediately reminded him of another one of Rascal Flatts' big hits. ["It’s just a masterpiece. I felt much the same way listening to this song as I did when we heard ‘Broken Road’ for the first time. It’s a timeless message that will inspire people, and it’s about what kind of mark you leave behind when you leave this world. What kind of legacy do you have? And for me, when I heard it, I first went ‘What are people going to say about me when I’m gone?’ It’s a song that I believe will challenge listeners when they hear it and they’ll wonder about what their life’s legacy is going to look like once they’re gone. And I think it’s a wonderful thing. I really do, and a timely message for right now.”] SOUNDCUE (:28 OC: . . . for right now.)
The EP commemorates Rascal Flatts' 20-year anniversary.
Their performance of the song from the stage of the Grand Ole Opry aired during NBC's Today show yesterday (Monday, June 22nd).
