With all the talk of Jason Aldean and Taylor Swift pulling their music from online streaming service Spotify, it's only natural to ask other artists what they think.

Rascal Flatts held out for a while before putting their album "Rewind" on the service, but did eventually give in and start streaming it. Broadway asked Rascal Flatts' Joe Don Rooney whether Flatts might remove their music in the future from the site. His answer may surprise you.

"Spotify is one of those things for us it's been a pretty good mechanism to have people listen to our older stuff and then also the newer stuff," he said.

"We're just at a place where right now we're not moving or anything right now, we're just kind of staying where we're at."

Despite seeming to be on Spotify's side, the singer says he understands the other side of the argument and thinks that the better experience for fans is to actually buy the whole album. Check out JDR arguing both sides of the topic below.
