Duh! They make big bucks! It would have been STOOPID to give them up!
The Disney owned Lyric Street Records closed recently, leaving many employees without jobs and many artists with nowhere to go.
However, the band Rascal Flatts were lucky enough to be kept on to finish their new album which is set to be released in September - they just don't have an actual label yet!
Singer Gary LeVox said:
“It will be out on somewhere. We’re still moving full steam ahead and we’re just pumped about the new stuff that we’re cutting. It’s just a sad deal. That was our family for 12 years. It just kind of blindsided us. It was just kind of out of the blue. It’s still a little shocking.”
Bassist Jay DeMarcus elaborates:
“We’ve still got the same radio promo team in place and they’re still working our singles, so you know it’s just business as usual for us. Unfortunately there’s just not as many people around as there used to be.”
12 years? Wow!
Here's hoping they find a new label that they are comfortable on!
