In the “Musical Insights” series, country artists share their thoughts on some of their most popular tunes.

The lead single from Rascal Flatts‘ forthcoming new album, “Yours If You Want,” is special to the band for several reasons.

“A guy named Jonathan Singleton wrote it, and Andrew Dorff,” explains the band’s Joe Don Rooney in a statement from their label.”That song was written like two years ago and we just got it pitched to us this past summer and it’s just awesome. Uptempo and fun, great lyric on that song. So we took it in and recorded it and out of like seven songs recorded so far that’s the one that just went to the top.”
