Known for its pleasing harmonious sound, Rascal Flatts was originally formed by two Columbus natives Jay DeMarcus (born Stanley W. DeMarcus Jr. on April 27, 1971) and his second cousin, Gary LeVox (born Gary Wayne Vernon Jr. on July 10, 1970), who both shared the same profound interest in music as they grew up together in this capital city of Ohio. The idea to establish a band first came into Jay's mind when he managed to flourish a productive musical career with Christian pop group East to West besides being a session musician following his relocation to Nashville since 1992. Feeling that Gary could help materializing his dream, he then approached the guy and successfully convinced him to leave his job at the state's Department of Mental Retardation to begin working on the concept hand in hand by the year 1997.
