“[‘Payback’] is a fun little revenge tune that’s awesome and I think the girls are going to love that one,” Jay DeMarcus said. “We didn’t write the song, we found the song, or it found us. It’s revenge driven in a funny way. What he’s saying is basically, ‘Let’s dance together at this club tonight. We’ll take some pictures and put them out on the Internet and he’ll see it and it’ll piss him off and he’ll wonder.'”
Fans of the ACM Award-nominated Vocal Duo of the Year and Radio.com‘s New Music to Know artists Dan + Shay, Rascal Flatts said they’re impressed by the duo’s talent and call “I Like the Sound of That” a “really cool tune.”
“They’re super talented and so kind when we met them in Memphis, and they told Gary all about how they grew up listening to him sing,” DeMarcus said.
“We think they have a great future ahead of them,” Gary LeVox added.
As for their own upcoming album Rewind, the guys in Rascal Flatts coproduced more than half of it with producers Howard Benson and Dann Huff.
The album contains 13 tracks, and a deluxe Target version will include four additional songs. One of those is “Compass,” which will also be featured in the Sony Pictures film Heaven Is For Real.
