Rascal Flatts aren’t taking anything for granted. Now 17 years removed from the release of their debut album, they’re releasing Back to Us, their 10th studio album in May, and taking its back-to-basics theme seriously. So in the video for their new single “Yours If You Want It,” the band returns to Hermitage Cafe in Nashville – the scene of their very first photo shoot in the late Nineties.
The video, which stars Buffy the Vampire Slayer actress Kristy Swanson and Kevin Farley fantasizing about “building a life together” after a chance meeting in the diner, features the Flatts’ Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus, and Joe Don Rooney in a comedic turn flipping burgers and getting scolded for singing in the kitchen. The song’s live-life-while-you-got-it message takes on extra poignancy considering its cowriter, Andrew Dorff, passed away last December. The video is dedicated to him.
Back to Us arrives May 19th via Big Machine Records. The Flatts is nominated for best Vocal Group of the Year at the 52nd ACM Awards, which airs April 2nd at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
