Rascal Flatts announces plans to embark on farewell 'Life is a Highway' tour in 2020

Life is a highway and Rascal Flatts wants to ride it one last time.

The best-selling country music trio announced Tuesday plans for a farewell tour in 2020, marking the end of a two-decade run for the "What Hurts The Most" outfit.

The tour kicks off June 11 in Indianapolis, wrapping Oct. 17 in West Palm Beach, Florida. The run does not include an announced Nashville "farewell" date.

Formed in 2000, the trio — featuring Gary LeVox, Joe Don Rooney and Jay DeMarcus — scored 31 top 10 hits on Billboard's country airplay chart, including 14 No. 1 singles. With a signature sound blending country tradition with a pop spirit and arena rock, the group sold an estimated 23 million albums during 20-year run.

Hit singles include "I Like The Sound of That," "Bless The Broken Road," "Fast Cars and Freedom" and celebrated cover "Life Is A Highway."

One of the most-awarded country music groups this decade, Rascal Flatts joined the Music City Walk of Fame in 2010 and the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2012.

" When we started out 20 years ago, we could not imagine all of the people, places and gifts we would encounter,” singer Gary LeVox said in a news release. "The greatest feeling ever, is being told that our music has been the soundtrack to their lives."

Ticket information plans to released at a later date. Find out more at rascalflatts.com.
