Well, he did say list my "favorites", so... I did. And since I can NEVER single out a single favorite, I listed all of the things i like equally... which is a lot of things. xD

And yes, I listen to Rascal Flatts. Their songs are inspiring.

Btw, SGR, If you like Rascal Flatts, then I would particularly recommend Mumford and Sons, really similar in style to R.F just generally in a higher tempo. :)
