RASCAL FLATTS: BILLBOARD’S BEST

Rascal Flatts has become the first group in history to be named both the No. 1 Top 200 Artist of the Year as well as the Top Country Artist of the Year by Billboard magazine.

This is the second consecutive year that Billboard has tapped Rascal Flatts as Country Artist of the Year. Only two other country artists, Garth Brooks and LeAnn Rimes, have been named Billboard’s No. 1 Top 200 Artist of the Year. In addition, the trio—Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney—was selected as the No. 1 Top Country Album Artist and Top Country Duo or Group.
