Disney’s country label Lyric Street has launched a brand new website in honor of its artist Rascal Flatts who celebrate ten years in the industry in 2010. The new site reminisces across the past decades with a photo collage, a length history of awards and recognitions and a complete discography.
Also pictured on the site is what appears to be cover art for an album titled 10 Years featuring a large X (Roman numeral for ten) promising a September 2010 release (although October seems like it would be a more obvious choice) along with a host of ways for loyal fans to interact.
