Country Stars’ Real Names: Rascal Flatts’ Gary LeVox
Real Name: Gary Vernon, Jr.
Gary LeVox’s last name means “the voice” in French, but it’s not clear if the singer knew that when he chose the moniker. He grabbed the name from the label of an in-studio console reading “L.Vox.” “L” stood for “lead singer” and Vox is a brand of amplifiers. According to some sources, he was embarrassed to find out it translated to “the voice.” He didn’t know he’d chosen such an egotistical name until it was too late.
