Keisha Renee Turned Rascal Flatts’ “What Hurts the Most” Into a Soulful Country-R&B Ballad on “The Voice”


Just when you think you’ve heard Rascal Flatts’ “What Hurts the Most” for the last time in your life, Keisha Renee goes on to sing it during the Top 8 performances on “The Voice” and you think to yourself, “this song sounds good. I remember why it was such a big hit now.”

Originally, Mark Wills released the tune in 2003 on his And The Crowd Goes Wild album, but it wasn’t until Rascal Flatts released it in 2006 as the first single from the Me and My Gang album that it went wild. The Flatts version was the group’s fifth No. 1 hit and their first Top 10 hit on Billboard‘s all-genre Hot 100 chart. It also earned the group two GRAMMY nominations.

Keisha’s version of the tune wasn’t perfect, but she took the well known and often covered song and made it her own.

After the show, Rascal Flatts gave the performance their stamp of approval.
