Rascal Flatts On The Song They Regret Passing Up

Rascal Flatts recall the hit song that could have been theirs

While Rascal Flatts have had plenty of number one hits, they could have had more had they not passed on some songs that went on to be number ones for other people.

For example, they were offered the tune “Don’t You Wanna Stay,” which went on to be a hit for Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson. But according to Jay DeMarcus the one song that they totally regret passing on is “Watching Airplanes,” by Gary Allan.

“We thought it was a great song, but we were like, ‘No I don’t think we can do it,’” he says. “And then I heard it on the radio and I was like, ‘Damn.’”
