While the track Changed was not the first single to be taken from the Rascal Flatts 2012 album of the same name, it does still have a lot of meaning to the band. Guitarist Joe Don Rooney has opened up about the single Changed, claiming that it is the perfect song to represent what the album means and where the band are.
Rooney explained, "It’s the perfect title for a song at the right time for us. We’ve been through a lot of changes during the history of the band — us becoming the men we are today, becoming the husbands and fathers we are today and having a career in this crazy music business."
He added, “We’ve learned so much along the way and gone through so many experiences we’ve been fortunate to have, and then taking all that and throwing into the (‘Changed’) album, basically. I think (the song) takes that all into account, which is why it was so perfect."
The album Changed is the eighth studio album by the country trio Rascal Flatts and also the seventh consecutive number one country album for the band. The single Changed was released to a critical reception, receiving praise from fans and critics alike.
