Rewind is the ninth studio album by American country music group Rascal Flatts. It was released on May 13, 2014 via Big Machine Records. The album was produced by Rascal Flatts, Howard Benson and Dann Huff. A deluxe edition is available at Target with four bonus tracks.
Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic rated the album four stars out of five, writing that "it's hard not to succumb to Rascal Flatts' smooth touch." At Country Weekly, Bob Paxman graded the album a B+, stating that "Rewind is a great-sounding album that brings Flatts back to country's forefront." At USA Today, Brian Mansfield rated the album two-and-a-half stars out of five, remarking how "The trio retools its style with mixed results", yet it's "High-flown ballads remain a strength, and Joe Don Rooney fans will thrill to his guitar work": however, "Elsewhere, the group just sounds as if like it's trying to keep up with the times."
The album debuted on its release at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the Top Country Albums chart with sales of 61,000 in the US. As of August 2014, the album has sold 165,000 copies in the US.
