It’s the end of the road for “Life is a Highway” singers Rascal Flatts. The iconic country trio have announced that they will part ways after their farewell tour later this fall.
The band broke the news during an appearance on CBS This Morning, where they also revealed plans for their Farewell: Life is a Highway tour. “We’re gonna take 12 months to celebrate our rear ends off with the people who have given us their everything,” frontman Gary LeVox said. “We’re just gonna… spend time with all our fans across the world.”
But the trio also didn’t rule out a possible reunion in the future. “We’re not gonna sign some pact that says we’re never gonna tour again or anything like that,” bassist Jay DeMarcus added. “We all still love each other.”
In a separate statement on their social media accounts, the band reiterated that “there is no sadness” over their break-up. “Just new chapters, new journeys and new beginnings,” they added.
When we started out 20 years ago, we could not imagine all of the people, places and gifts we would encounter. As we head out on the Rascal Flatts Farewell – Life is A Highway Tour, there is no sadness. Just new chapters, new journeys, and new beginnings. pic.twitter.com/IL7Rnw1pv1
