Jay and Allison DeMarcus Welcome Baby

A little birdie has told me that Jay and Allison have welcomed Madeline Leigh to their family.  Allison gave birth today to their beautiful baby girl after a short labor.  Maddie has dark hair and blue eyes and made her way into the world December 17, 2010 a little before 5pm weighing in at 6 pounds 9 ounces.  Mother and child are doing well and Jay is reported to be very excited about the birth. What a wonderful Christmas gift for the DeMarcus family.

Congratulations Jay and Allison!
Happy Birthday Maddie!

Where Discovery Brings Hope

As many of you know Rascal Flatts holds the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt very near and dear to their hearts. Their involvement with this wonderful facility has brought awareness that many would not have experienced otherwise.  Pediatric hospitals are not where parents want to be, however it is a blessing to have such advanced medical institutes that specialize in the care of children. Vanderbilt is more than a hospital, it is a beautiful, caring and somewhat whimsical home at one time or another for so many very sick children and their families. 

The following presentation was aired December 10, 2010 for viewers in Nashville, Tennessee and the surrounding areas. The wonderful staff at Vanderbilt has made this available for all through you tube. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did and please share it with your friends.

Last, I know times are difficult for many but if you can give anything to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital or if there is a hospital in your home town that is dedicated to making a difference in children's lives, please do what you can, no matter how large or small, your contributions can help to brighten a day or save a life.

Children and their families turn to the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt for hope and healing from some of America's best physicians. But there's more to the story than that. Join Rascal Flatts for a look inside how Vanderbilt doctors and scientists are researching solutions to childhood cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity and the effects of premature birth. Find out how you can be part of giving hope to all children through these discoveries.

    Rascal Flatts Receive Decade Award

    The following is straight from the News page on Rascal Flatts Fan Club. I can't begin to tell you how happy I was for Rascal Flatts; Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney when they received this honor. To see the standing ovation and to feel a genuine happiness that they were receiving long overdue recognition for their contribution to country music touched me.
    Add to the honors received at the American Country Awards; the success Rascal Flatts is having with Nothing Like This debuting at #1 on Billboard's Country Album list (six albums in a row ~ amazing!) and Why Wait declared #1 on Billboard's Country Singles list is proof that there is so much more to come.  Rascal Flatts, your fans are all looking forward to the next 10 years!!

    Congratulations Rascal Flatts!!!
