Rascal Flatts' Release Greatest Hits Album
Rascal Flatts were in New York City last month to film the music video for “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” from the band’s recently released Greatest Hits Volume 1. The clip was directed by Shaun Silva.
“I’ll Be Home For Christmas” will make its TV debut on Monday, December 8 and can also be viewed online at outlets including Yahoo, AOL, MSN and RascalFlatts.com
. Starting Tuesday, December 9 fans can purchase the music video at iTunes.
The video was shot at
’s historic Roosevelt Hotel and features Gary, Jay and Joe Don performing in the lobby and preparing to return to their families for the holidays. The overnight shoot started at 11pm and didn’t wrap until 5 a.m. the following morning. Despite the late hour the lobby had to be shut down for filming after fans learned the band was shooting their music video and crowded the hotel.
“I’ll Be Home For Christmas” is one of three limited edition holiday songs on Rascal Flatts recently released Greatest Hits Volume 1. The holiday songs will only be available for purchase through the end of December.
Since their career launched in 2000, Rascal Flatts has sold over 17 million albums, scored 9 #1 singles and 17 top 10 hits and each of their five albums are multi-platinum sellers. They are the reigning AMA, CMT, ACM and CMA Vocal Group of The Year with two, six, five and six respective consecutive wins. They were honored as the 2008 Academy of Country Music/The Home Depot® Humanitarian Award recipients during the recent ACM Awards show in May. This honor, in part, due to their dedication to raising funds for the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, where in the past 4 years they have donated 3 million dollars, as well as their work on the American Red Cross Celebrity Cabinet board.
