Rascal Flatts member Jay DeMarcus will release his first book, called Shotgun Angels: My Story of Broken Roads and Unshakable Hope, on April 30th. The memoir is described as giving “readers a backstage pass to the unlikely journey that led DeMarcus from small-town Ohio to some of the world’s largest stages.”

Jay said, “I’m really looking forward to sharing a pretty personal look at my path so far, as that isn’t something I’ve done yet. In Shotgun Angels, readers will hear never-before-told stories and get a glimpse into what it was like for me coming from Columbus Ohio and my journey to Nashville. My ultimate goal is that the book will encourage people that no matter where they are in their lives, they can find hope, comfort and strength in their faith.”

Jay is expected to head out on a multi-city book tour upon release.

In the meantime, he and his Rascal Flatts partners, Gary LeVox and Joe Don Rooney, have released a new single called “Back To Life.”
