Rascal Flatts is taking time out from their just-launched Rewind tour to honor soldiers who have given their lives in service to their country. Band member Jay DeMarcus is a self-professed history buff, so he spends quite a bit of time thinking about those sacrifices.
"I think that all too often we go about our lives here in America, taking things for granted that have been paid for in blood by so many people that have come before us," Jay says. "And I hope that we never get to the point to where we’re so complacent that we forget those people that are over there putting their lives on the line for us, day-in and day-out."
Rascal Flatts is currently working to raise funds for the Civil War-era film, To Appomattox . For more information, check out the film's Kickstarter campaign .
