This time around, the band has teamed up with JC Penny as stylists for their tour. The band’s clothing stylist, John Murphy, spoke with the Entertainer about the band and their signature style.
Murphy began his career as a wardrobe stylist after moving to Nashville in 1997. His first job in the industry was as a wardrobe assistant on a Garth Brooks video. John works with a variety of actors and entertainers for Red Carpet Events, Award Shows and Magazine Editorials. Some of his current and past clients include Rascal Flatts, Sharon Stone, Britney Spears, Jeremy Piven, Colin Farrell and JoDee Messina.
Interestingly John was a pre-med in college and was taking a semester off when he met another stylist from Nashville. He moved there two weeks later and was introduced to a few people who offered him his first job. He’s also worked in LA, styling artists. He says, “I was able to work with a lot of different people in LA when I was there for five years, but really enjoy working in the music industry. I’ve had so many amazing opportunities in the past 8 years working for Rascal Flatts.”
The band and JC Penny came together to launch their American Living Collection two years ago and now “the guys incorporate affordable brands from JC Penney in their red carpet and tour wardrobe”, says Murphy.
If you’re looking to dress like the band, consider Murphy’s description of each of the guys: “Joe Don’s style has a little but of that rock star edge to it. Gary tends to lean more toward a country inspired looks more and Jay has that cool, casual thing going on.”
Rascal Flatts has released six studio albums and a greatest hits album. The band has released Rascal Flatts (2000), Melt (2002), Feels Like Today (2004), Me and My Gang (2006), Still Feels Good (2007), and their newest album, Unstoppable, released on April 7, 2009. All their albums have been certified Platinum. Most of which are double, or even 5 times multi-platinum.
