Rascal Flatts’ Joe Don Rooney is celebrating his 45th birthday today (9/13). Did you know that in addition to the electric guitar, Rooney plays the acoustic and bass guitars, as well as mandolin & banjo? His influences include guitarists Chet Atkins, Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck.

The trio just released a new EP called How They Remember You. The trio cancelled their final tour which was scheduled in 2020. No word on whether or not they will tour again as a trio.

Let’s celebrate Joe Don with  a Rascal Flatts gallery.
