Hollywood Chamber to honor Rascal Flatts with star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce proudly announces that Hollywood will go country when Rascal Flatts is honored with a star on the famed Walk of Fame on September 17, 2012 at 11:30 a.m. “Fans from all over the country have been anxiously awaiting for their favorite country band to get their star!” stated Walk of Fame producer Ana Martinez.

Rascal Flatts began their musical journey in the year 2000 when they released their first album. It was just a couple of years earlier when Gary LeVox (lead vocals) and Jay DeMarcus (bassist and background vocals), cousins from the Columbus, Ohio, and Joe Don Rooney, from Picher, Oklahoma, teamed up in a club in Nashville's Printers Alley.  It was in that club, the Fiddle & Steel Guitar Bar, where they discovered they had a vocal sound that was something special.

That sound quickly earned the band a record deal and talent, drive, and great song selection did the rest. Their now impressive list of career accolades includes more than 21 million albums sold and 25 million digital downloads.  They have seen 14 singles hit the top of the charts, spending more than eight months collectively at #1. They have won more than 40 major awards, including seven ACM trophies for “Vocal Group of the Year” and six trophies for CMA “Vocal Group of the Year.”

Recently they added a Grand Ole Opry membership and the prestigious Country Radio Seminar 2012 Artist Humanitarian Award to their list of accomplishments for their charitable endeavors with the Monroe Carell Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, where they have donated more than 3 million dollars, the Make A Wish foundation, The Jason Foundation and The American Red Cross.

Their list of hits constitutes one of the great bodies of work in modern country music, with "Bless the Broken Road," "What Hurts The Most," "My Wish," "Take Me There," "Here Comes Goodbye," “Life Is A Highway,” “I Won’t Let Go,” and many more.

Rascal Flatts new album CHANGED, released earlier this spring, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart, giving them the distinction of being one of only four acts to have seven consecutive studio albums debut in the top spot.

Their performances are state-of-the art, house-rocking extravaganzas, sold-out excursions that have resulted in more than six million career concert tickets sold. The tally will continue with this year’sFarmers Insurance Presents “Changed Tour” currently running across the US and Canada this summer and fall.

Looking Back: Rascal Flatts 2011 Recap

As the new year begins, Rascal Flatts fans eagerly anticipate new music, events and milestones from their favorite group in 2012.  While waiting to see what the future holds, it is the perfect time for us  to reflect on Rascal Flatts previous year's accomplishments.  In 2011 Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney had what has become the norm for the trio since beginning their journal together in 1999, this has been another fast paced, jam packed year.  Rascal Flatts started the year with the winter leg of their Nothing Like This Tour kicking off in January and ended with Gary, Jay and Joe Don as the host to the America’s Opry Weekend Year-End Special.  In between some of the MANY events included...

A huge milestone for Rascal Flatts and one that I am sure must top their list ... Induction into the Grand Ole Opry. 

I Won't Let Go became their 25th Top 10 Hit and their 13th Number 1 Hit

An amazing 29 city Flatts Fest Tour (many of which were sold out!) along with several other appearances such as several Grand Ole Opry appearances, CMA Festival, Stagecoach Country Music Festival and the Houston Rodeo.

Rascal Flatts teamed up with Best Buy and the Grammy Foundation donating $5,000 to Centennial High School in Franklin, TN and surprising the students with an appearance 

They were also the receipants of the Tony Martell Lifetime Entertainment Achievement Award for their philanthropic efforts to help raise awareness and funds for innovative cancer research.

There were various TV performances including 

  • Nothing Like This Special 
  • The Today Show
  • CMA Awards
  • CMA Country Christmas
  • The Oprah Winfrey Show's "Farewell"
  • CMT Awards Show

There were various performances included among them singing the National Anthem at The Brickyard 400 and Rascal Flatts also performed at and participated in the Bush Center Warrior Open golf tournament held by former President George W. Bush for soldiers who had been severely wounded during their tours in Iraq and Afghanistan

I Won't Let Go and Easy were both certified as Gold for 500,000 digital downloads in 2011.
Rascal Flatts was featured as cartooned participants in the Facebook game CMT Platinum Life: Country

Some other TV appearances included CMT Insider, GAC Headline Country, E! News, Fox News, Inside the PGA and an episode of West Coast Customs revolving around the design and build of their Rascal Flatts Red Camaro. 

There were tons of radio specials and interviews!!

And there were the individual appearances during their down time such as Jay performing at year end with his dad, Gary taking part in a Christmas event for church and Joe performing at a pro-am golf event.   

Of course Gary, Jay and Joe Don made some well deserved and I am sure precious time for relaxation and fun ... golfing, hunting, traveling and spending time with family and friends.

These three do so much, I am positive there are many things omitted from my list however I am sure you get the idea, they were busy! 

So here's to you guys!  Thank you for all you have given to us, it's been a wonderful year... we love you!  

Happy New Year!!
