RASCAL FLATTS Releases Own Version Of KENNY ROGERS' "Through The Years"
Superstar country group Rascal Flatts paid tribute to one of their idols as they released an emotional rendition of the late Kenny Rogers' hit "Through The Years”.
The trio of Gary LeVox, Joe Don Rooney, and Jay DeMarcus originally performed the song as part of the special CMT Giants Kenny Rogers: A Benefit for MusiCares last April.
In a statement, LeVox said "'Through The Years' is a perfect love song, and it only felt right that this was the song we chose to pay tribute to Kenny."
"We're honored to be able to keep shining Kenny's light on the world in this small way. Music is healing and I think it's important for us to keep embracing the power of music right now. Kenny would have wanted it that way," he added.
