What parents need to know

Positive messages

Nice-guy, good-boyfriend-material stuff like "There's a place in your heart nobody's been...take me there" and sticking-up-for-yourself stuff like "She left that loser in a dust cloud...cried her last tears for that clown/she can see a little clearer now."

Not applicable

Some very mild innuendo: In "Still Feels Good" a long-term couple talks about "the old t-shirt you still wear to bed...the one you ripped off me when we first met," another song is titled "She Goes All the Way" but has no explicitly sexual lyrics.


Nothing stronger than "damn."


No product placement except for the usual ringtone ads on the package.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the new Rascal Flatts album delivers gorgeous harmonies, exquisite production, and nice-guy lyrics that spend a lot of time in boy-gets-girl/boy-loses-girl/boy-regrets-losing-girl/boy-gets-girl-back territory. Though the songs will be most appealing to those with a high schmaltz-tolerance threshold, they are well written and family safe.

What's the story?

Die-hard fans won't be disappointed -- rock-infused guitar work, a strong and solid rhythm section, and perfectionist vocal harmonies, all Rascal Flatts trademarks, rule the day on STILL FEELS GOOD. If the songs here verge on the formulaic, well, it's a formula that has worked really well for these winners of CMA, ACM, CMT, Billboard, and Grammy awards.

Is it any good?


The lyrics are innocuous and family safe, although never brilliant, and the content stays firmly in nice-guy-relationship land. Songs about love, loss, regret, hope, and more love -- heavy on the power ballads -- make Gary, Joe Don, and Jay seem like the kind of guys you'd want to take your daughters to the prom.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about what makes an album "country" or "rock." Rascal Flatts uses a lot of electric guitar and a rock-influenced rhythm section. Why do you think they get played mostly on country radio stations? Do you think they'd be just as successful with rock fans?
