Rascal Flatts is the first studio album by American country music group Rascal Flatts, released on June 6, 2000 on Lyric Street Records. It sold 2,303,000 in the United States up to May 2009,[2] and has been certified 2× Platinum by the RIAA.

The album produced four singles on the Billboard country charts in "Prayin' for Daylight", "This Everyday Love", "While You Loved Me" and "I'm Movin' On", all of which charted in the Top Ten on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. "Long Slow Beautiful Dance" also charted in the lower regions of the charts based on unsolicited airplay. To date, it is the only Rascal Flatts album of their career not to feature a number one single. While the band's contemporaries, Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney, started with a neotraditional country sound before developing a crossover-friendly country pop sound, the band had a crossover-friendly country pop sound from the very beginning.
