Rascal Flatts talk about Duet with Natasha Bedingfield

Today Big Machine Records (the "All Eyez On Them" record company that just accomplished the Unicorn feat of a million-selling week for label mate Taylor Swift) drops a new musical effort: Rascal Flatts.  It is the superstar group's seventh studio album, but the first for this label-- prophetically named Nothing Like This.  One of the true standout tracks will no doubt be the Flatt's first pop-crossover hit:  a duet with Natasha Bedingfield called "Easy".   It is something that we love to call in this business as a One Listen-- like platinum first weeks, these are also freakin' Unicorns to behold.  They almost never happen.  

The guys in the band recently spoke about their collaboration with UK diva Natasha, who blended seamlessly with them on Easy, and revealed that they have the same feeling we do when listening to it: WHOA, we have something here.  Yeah wish I had the mp3 of the actual song but alas, this is just a short interview piece about the song.   Slap me. I know I'm wack right now. 

Meanwhile, expect a much more pop version of "Easy" to appear stripped on Natasha's current album, the aptly titled "Strip Me" in 2011.

I can't leave ya hangin with no music....check out piano wunderkid Brian Kennedy (who co-produced "Easy" for the Rascal Flatts with Dann Huff) all the way live in a collabo with Natasha earlier this month at the Roxy.
