Before he shot to fame as the lead singer of Rascal Flatts, Gary LeVox spent a decade as a social worker helping developmentally disabled people back home in Ohio. He calls that time “an amazing 10 years of my life.”
Gary tells Vegas Seven magazine, “I learned so much from that experience — how to be patient, how to be honest, how to embrace life and have a positive perspective. It was just a wonderful time for me, and it really helped turn me into a man. The lessons I learned from working in that field have helped me in so many other parts of my life.”
Though his job with Rascal Flatts comes with a lot more perks and a much bigger paycheck, Gary adds, “I do miss my old job at times, more often than you might suspect.”
Rascal Flatts launches their Vegas Riot! residency at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas Wednesday, February 25.
