Finally, unable to close his eyes, he went to the window and looked outside. A herd of sheep was passing below him. Bells had been hung around their necks.
LeVox, who owns a farm, isn't exactly a stranger to barnyard animals, but it threw him a little to see them outside his hotel.
"The countryside was really beautiful there," he added. "It was amazing terrain."
LeVox said the band would be returning to Europe for more shows in 2014, following the release of the upcoming record.
"It's a different kind of record for us," he said. "We went with producer Howard Benson for this one. He's more known in the rock world. We just wanted a different set of eyes and ears for this one."
The new record will still be pure Rascal Flatts, but he said it has a slightly different flavor.
"We can't wait to get it out of our hands into our fans' hands," LeVox said.
He added that even though this tour is winding down, they're still feeling pretty strong and very blessed for all the success they've had. In the last couple of years, along with racking up more Country Music Television and American Music Awards, the band was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry and received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
"We're the most awarded band in country music history," LeVox acknowledged, but said they'd never really gone after that kind of acclaim. "It's awesome to be able to work and be recognized for it."
After Rascal Flatts finishes their tour, their next record and the various one-off engagements, LeVox said he was looking forward to spending a little time at home and doing a little bit of hunting.
He's been doing a little bit lately since Rascal Flatts's tour schedule has slowed since the summer.
"It's bow season right now," he said. "I got three deer last week. The population (of deer) is pretty big this year. You can take three doe a day."
