A cover of Tom Cochrane’s "Life Is a Highway", from the soundtrack to the 2006 film Cars, also entered the country music charts from unsolicited airplay. Their longest-lasting Number One is "Bless the Broken Road" (late 2004 early 2005) at five weeks, while their biggest crossover single is "What Hurts the Most", which topped both the country and Adult Contemporary charts in 2006, and was a Top Ten pop hit. Rascal Flatts was founded at Fiddle and Steel Guitar Bar in Nashville, Tennessee. Gary Levox and Jay DeMarcus are second cousins from a musical family. DeMarcus’s brother-in-law, James Otto, is also a country music artist. DeMarcus moved to Nashville in 1992, earning his first record deal as part of a Christian group called East to West. In 1997, he finally convinced LeVox to leave behind his job and pursue a career in music. DeMarcus soon joined Chely Wright’s band, and there he met JoeDon Rooney. DeMarcus and LeVox were working in a Printer’s Alley nightclub, and when their part-time guitarist could not make it one night, DeMarcus invited Rooney to sit in. The crowd’s reaction was a positive one, and many asked the trio what their band’s name was. They told the crowd that they did not have a name, and according to Gary, a man approached them and told the trio that he had a garage band when he was younger, named Rascal Flatts. The trio liked the name, and began performing together, getting signed to Lyric Street Records in late 1999.
