Rascal Flatts frontman, Gary LeVox, paid a visit to a West Tennessee grocery store on Monday (Oct. 17) to lend a helping hand to customers and fans.
When shoppers arrived at the community-run and operated store, Save-A-Lot, they weren’t expecting to run into LeVox behind the counter. Word of his appearance began to spread quickly on social media, drawing in more fans who hoped to catch a glimpse and maybe even meet the country star.
“I didn’t really believe it at first, but then everybody started saying it. Then we started seeing it on Facebook, and so we thought, ‘Yeah. We’ll go up there and check it out.’ Big fan of his music,” one shopper said in a video captured by WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News.
She added, “Breathtaking. It was amazing, you know, because you never get this close to someone like that. And when you do, it’s a dream come true.”
In a recap video posted to his Instagram, LeVox was seen posing with customers in the Lexington, TN store, which filled up with excited fans from the community. He was in the store for about an hour and a half, making sure to meet as many fans as he could.
His caption read, “I got the chance to stop by a local @savealotfoodstores on Monday and met so many of y’all. Y’all sure showed me how you #GetDownLikeThat in Lexington, TN!”
In the post, LeVox also teased that he might be “coming to one near you next 👀🙏”
Not only did the award-winning singer take the time to snap a few photos with fans, but he also signed autographs on grocery bags and handed out gift cards.
“It was pretty awesome. I’ve been a huge fan of Rascal Flatts for a really long time, and I have several of their albums and never really got to see them in concert. So it was really cool to be here today and get a picture with him. At first I was like, ‘I’m not going to get a picture with him, I’m just going to take a picture.’ But he did get a picture with me. It was really cool,” said another shopper in attendance.
In another post, LeVox shared that he would be donating $3,000 to First United Methodist Church in Lexington in a further effort to give back to the community.
“Truly an honor to be able to gift First United Methodist Church Lexington a $3,000 @savealotfoodstores gift card to continue their work here in Tennessee. Y’all are changing lives. Thank you for you continued hard work 🙏🙏,” the singer/songwriter wrote.
When Rascal Flatts disbanded in 2020, LeVox made the decision to keep music in his life and began pursuing his solo career. He was officially introduced into the industry as a solo artist when he dropped his debut project, One On One. This collection features collabs with BRELAND, MercyMe, Jonathan McReynolds and LeVox’s own daughter, Brittany.
The singer/songwriter’s newest song, “Get Down Like That,” was co-written by Thomas Rhett, Ashley Gorley, HARDY and Jesse Frasure and serves as a true windows down, celebratory anthem.
“Basically, it’s just about gettin’ out of the city, gettin’ out in the country and kind of livin’ the lifestyle that we live,” he shared via Big Machine. “The one part of the song it says, (singing) ‘Ain’t your fault that you ain’t from a town like that, so let me show you how to get down like that.’ I love it so much. It’s just about what we drive, what we do out here in the country. It’s just a country lifestyle and the way that we love to live.”
Founded in 2000, Rascal Flatts is one of the most successful country groups of all time with 17 No.1 singles and more than 23.4 million albums sold. Rascal Flatts has earned more than 40 trophies from ACA, ACM, AMA, CMA, People’s Choice and more, cementing the band as the most-awarded country group of the past decade. They’re known for massive hits such as “Bless The Broken Road,” “Life Is A Highway,” “What Hurts The Most,” “My Wish,” “I Like The Sound Of That” and more.
Gary LeVox is next slated to perform on Nov. 5 in Orlando, FL.
