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.
