Review

LeVox presents a well-delivered collection packed full with messages of truth and comfort that highlight the goodness of God’s love in our lives, which also pours out to others if we let it (because this is how the world will know who we are), as well a trust in God’s faithfulness to keep us devoted to the truth so we will never lose our way–a trust that comes from a track record of God never failing, one that keeps us despite the worst inner struggles and outer circumstances, so that in the end the promise that we will win and overcome is fulfilled in our lives no matter what comes our way.

A comforting and calming work of art with messages that remain timeless.

*Though I offer this review to the public, it’s my opinion and simply that. A ‘thank you’ to Momentum Influencer Network and Big Machine Label Group for a free streamer in exchange for my honest opinion.

● When asked about the role God has played in his musical journey, LeVox said, “I feel like God
graced us with a platform where we can not only touch people’s lives through music, but by being men of God offstage too,” explained LeVox. “At those times when we are with fans that are going through something like cancer, it is so wonderful to not only sing for them but to hold their hand and pray with them. I want them to know that they have a friend in me. I’m not just some guy on the stage. I feel like Christ has put me in this position because He knew I could handle the obligation, which often means
taking the time to lift someone up in prayer.”

About Gary LeVox’s Journey with One On One

His name is synonymous with vocal power. … Literally, it means “The Voice,” and it only takes a few notes to hear where he got it. But for Rascal Flatts’ Gary LeVox, there’s always been a different, higher power at work. Now with ONE ON ONE, a solo debut fusing two of his biggest passions–music and faith–that higher power takes center stage. Arriving May 21 via Big Machine Records, LeVox’s new chapter kicks off withfive soul-mining anthems andthe resilient single, “The Distance.” And according to him, the timing is perfect. “‘The Distance’ was the first song written for my solo chapter,” LeVox explains. “With the struggles and battles so many have gone through this past year and how they’ve taken over people’s everyday lives, it just felt like the true song of hope we need.” As the front man and co-founder of Rascal Flatts–one of the most influential groups in Country history–LeVox has embraced that hope all along. Since their founding in 2000, the group placed spirituality at the center, cultivating a Country style that not only infused tradition with arena-sized pop hooks and stadium showmanship, but also presented faith and fun as a core value. Two decades of sentimental smash hits were the result, including 17 No. 1s, over 23 million albums sold, 35 million digital downloads, 2.2 billion streams worldwide and 4.4 billion streams on Pandora alone. All told, Rascal Flatts sold over 11 million concert tickets and earned more than 40 honors from the ACA, ACM, AMA, CMA, People’s Choice and more, making them the most awarded Country group of the past decade. But the group’s 2020 farewell found LeVox in a new position. With the trio just celebrating a sentimental radio hit together–the reflective “How They Remember You”–he’s now embracing a new phase of his musical journey. ONE ON ONE is an epic expression of the power of faith–one that’s much needed in a pandemic-ravaged world. But these aren’t your typical Sunday-morning singalongs. The Distance was a preview of things to come, wrapping LeVox’s explosive vocal in more energy and purpose than ever. Existing on a different sonic plane from his Rascal Flatts roots, it arrived as a striking mesh of forward momentum and eyes-to-the-sky hope, mixing electronic hooks with intense rock power and spirit-lifting snap tracks. All throughout, LeVox pushed his voice to its stratospheric limits, opening a direct connection between the heavens and Earth–and delivering a simple message for complicated times. “With this song, the message we wanted to share is that our hope is not lost–it’s found on the cross,” he says. “And with God, we can go the distance. Don’t ever give up.” Elsewhere, LeVox leaned on his “congregation” to explore that calling. Contemporary Christian hitmakers MercyMe share in a smiling, open-hearted jam called A Little Love. GRAMMY winning Gospel talent, Jonathan McReynolds, offers a testimony of gratitude for Never Forget, and LeVox’s daughter, Brittany, joins the family business on While I Wait, a steadfast promise of spiritualcommitment. Then, with the reflective All I See, Country-rap firebrand BRELAND helps the superstar keep his eyes on the ultimate prize.

Produced by Matt McVaney, the collection stands now as a modern blast of spiritual pop, created byone of the most electrifying vocalists of his era. But it’s true energy comes from the ONE ON ONE connection LeVox preaches. And that’s something he says the world needs now, more than ever.” One On One is my passion project and I have wanted to do this body of work for as long as I canremember,” explains LeVox. “I feel so honored to get to collaborate with such greatness throughout thisproject. BRELAND is a dream to work and sing with, as is the iconic MercyMe. Jonathon McReynolds, one of the greatest singers of our time and my dear friend, wrote a perfect song for us. And for my daughter, Brittany, and I, to get to sing a song that Tauren Wells helped craft, just completed the collection. I couldn’t be prouder of this project, and the songs that we recorded. This is gonna be an amazing new season and I just hope everybody enjoys it as much as we did making it.”
