Spotlight Artist of The Week – Rascal Flatts [VIDEO]
The spotlight artist of the week on KNUE is the multi-talented trio, Rascal Flatts. “Bless the Broken Road” is a song that has been recorded by several American country music artists. It was co-written by Marcus Hummon and members of the country music group Nitty Gritty Dirt Band in 1994, and recorded by Hummon a year later. Since then, Melodie Crittenden, Geoff Moore, Sons of the Desert, Selah, Jamie Slocum, Carrie Underwood, and Rascal Flatts have all recorded the song as well. Of the multiple versions that exist, Rascal Flatts’ version is the highest-charting, becoming a Number One hit on the Billboard country music charts in 2005 and earning the songwriters a Grammy Award for Best Country Song.
