Music City Walk Of Fame Induction Video

On November 7, 2010 Rascal Flatts was inducted into the Music City Walk of Fame.  It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Nashville, Tennessee and I was fortunate enough to be there that day. 

This video is not the best, there is a lot of movement ~ every time I moved or anyone in the crowd moved near me it caused my camera to move, add to that I was using my zoom a factor that exaggerated the movement. Also, at one point there is a gentleman behind me on the phone that can be heard. Even so, with all the imperfections I wanted to publish this so others would have the opportunity to hear what Jay, Gary and Joe Don said as they each addressed the crowd that was there for this event. 

I know this is not NEW news but I wanted to share it. I hope you enjoy the video of this historic event. :)

Rascal Flatts Red Camaro on West Coast Customs

West Coast Customs has tricked out an awesome Red Camaro for Rascal Flatts.  Joe Don tweeted pics of the car when they were in California making the Justin Bieber video and the car was presented to Rascal Flatts in Nashville during CRS last month.

WCC will air the show about the build on April 17, 2011. Rascal Flatts stated during a radio interview that the car will be given away to one lucky fan at the end of the tour so stay tune for more info on that contest.

Check out the video of the show premier from WCC You Tube.

Also, check out the theme song for WCC.  Great job Rascal Flatts :)

Rascal Flatts Among Contributing Artist On Countrypolitan Duets

Rascal Flatts has contributed back up vocals to You're The Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me featuring Ray Price on the album Countrypolitan Duets by Anna Wilson.

The album is a project by Anna Wilson and her husband Monty Powell that has duets featuring Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum and more.

From GAC's review it states what so many are surely thinking when they listen to this retro country / jazz album.
Though Rascal Flatts’ R&B side shines while providing backing vocal harmonies for Anna and Ray, we’re left wanting to hear Flatts’ frontman Gary LeVox try his hand at jazz and deliver a line solo.
Great album for your collection! Available on iTunes now.
