Rascal Flatts unveiled "Changed," the outfit's eighth studio album, in April via the indie label Big Machine. The 11-track collection, which follows the platinum-selling outfit's 2010 effort, "Nothing Like This," peaked at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 and at the top of the magazine's Top Country Albums chart.


Late last month, "Changed" exceeded sales of 500,000, giving it gold certification from RIAA.


"We are so appreciative of the many blessings our fans and country radio have given us," lead guitarist Joe Don Rooney stated at the band's website. "This is another amazing accomplishment that we're able to celebrate because of so many others' loyalty."
