Rascal Flatts members Gary LeVox, Joe Don Rooney, and Jay DeMarcus, as well as songwriters Chris DeStefano, Ashley Gorley, and Eric Paslay, were recently honored for Rascal Flatts’ latest chart-topping song, “Rewind.” The Nashville music industry feted the single at ASCAP’s Nashville office Wednesday (June 25). The tune is the title track from the trio’s ninth studio album. “Rewind” is the 15th No. 1 song for Gorley, and the fifth for both DeStefano and Paslay.

“This song has a pedigree with these songwriters,” said Cal IV Entertainment’s Daniel Hill, who thanked Scott Borchetta, Allison Jones, Jack Purcell and Paslay (a former Cal IV intern-turned-hit songwriter and artist), among others.

Big Machine Label Group, as well as publishers Cal IV Entertainment, Sony/ATV Music Publishing, and Warner/Chappell Music Publishing were on hand to celebrate. Warner/Chappell honored the members of Rascal Flatts by making a donation to the Rascal Flatts Pediatric Surgery Center at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital.
