    March 6, 2014 By “Compass” To Be Included On Country Supergroups’s Forthcoming Studio Album This May 0 Comments

    A new Rascal Flatts song entitled “Compass” will be featured in the upcoming Sony Pictures film “Heaven Is For Real,” which opens nationwide on Wednesday, April 16, 2014. The song will also be included on Flatts’ forthcoming Big Machine Records album, REWIND, available May 13, 2014. The album is now available for pre-order at RascalFlatts.com

    Based on the #1 New York Times best-selling book of the same name, “Heaven Is For Real” brings to the screen the true story of a small-town father who must find the courage and conviction to share his son’s extraordinary, life-changing experience with the world.

    The film stars Academy Award® nominee and Emmy® award winning actor Greg Kinnear as Todd Burpo and co-stars Kelly Reilly as Sonja Burpo, the real-life couple whose son Colton (newcomer Connor Corum) claims to have visited Heaven during a near death experience. Colton recounts the details of his amazing journey with childlike innocence and speaks matter-of-factly about things that happened before his birth ... things he couldn't possibly know. Todd and his family are then challenged to examine the meaning from this remarkable event.

    As the best-selling Country vocal group of the past decade, Rascal Flatts (Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney) have sold over 22.5 million albums and over 28 million digital downloads since their musical debut in 2000. The Superstar group has delivered 14 #1 singles to the top of the charts and have the distinction of being one of only four acts during the SoundScan era to have seven consecutive studio albums debut at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart. Rascal Flatts have earned over 40 trophies from the ACAs, ACMs, AMAs, CMAs, People's Choice Awards and more. In 2012, they reached a new career milestone with over 7 million concert tickets sold and will hit the road again this Spring with the REWIND Tour 2014. In anticipation of their next Big Machine Records album this summer, fans will get a taste of the fresh sound and rewind back in time with some previously released tunes on March 4 with the release of a Walmart exclusive EP. Their new single “Rewind” is currently rising in the Top 15.

    Known to go “big,” the Big Machine Label Group showcased the first round of stellar talent at Marathon Music Works last night (2/18) during their annual party to kick off Country Radio Seminar (CRS) week in Nashville. Co-hosted by CMT Radio, the capacity-crowd was treated to performances by Superstars Tim McGraw and Rascal Flatts. Hot newcomers The Cadillac Three introduced radio programmers from across the country to the rocking sound of their first single entitled “The South.” Eli Young Band’s Mike Eli, Thomas Rhett and Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley joined the trio for their southern-themed anthem. The Eli Young Band had the crowd singing at the top of their lungs with their most recent #1 hit “Drunk Last Night.”

    BMLG President/CEO Scott Borchetta welcomed invited VIP guests then handed the mic to the evening’s host, CMT Radio’s Cody Alan. Music execs mingling and noshing on delectable nibbles included: Republic Nashville President/BMLG EVP Jimmy Harnen; BMLG COO Andrew Kautz; Big Machine Records SVP Promotion Jack Purcell; CMT’s SVP of Music Strategy Leslie Fram; Red Light Management’s Coran Capshaw, Spalding Entertainment’s Clarence Spalding and Clear Channel’s EVP Country Programming Clay Hunnicutt.

    Halfway through the night, party attendees were asked to raise their “shot glass necklaces” for a massive toast with Florida Georgia Line’s signature favorite: Fireball Whisky.

    To help them get a good night’s rest after the bash, all attendees were gifted a luxury pillow from Comfort Revolution.

    The party will continue tonight with performances by Danielle Bradbery, Justin Moore, Brantley Gilbert and Motley Crue.
