Barrett Baber, a member of Blake Shelton’s team and Top 4 finalist on Season 9 of The Voice, has been chosen by Rascal Flatts to be their opening act during their upcoming residency in Las Vegas, titled Rascal Flatts Rhythm & Roots.
One of the things that first attracted me to country music was the "realness" of the artist. For the most part, country music artists seem to be the kind of people it would be fun to hang out with. And, they truly do care about the fans that care about them.
When Rascal Flatts first met, things didn't go all that well. Sure, Jay DeMarcus and Gary LeVox are cousins, so they were cool. But LeVox wasn't very kind to Joe Don Rooney. Then, something happened that set them on a course for superstardom. Do you know what it was?
Bristol Palin, the daughter of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, is engaged, and she has Rascal Flatts to thank. The trio gave Sgt. Dakota Meyer an assist as he dropped to a knee during one of their shows at the Joint inside Las Vegas' Hard Rock Hotel.
For the first time in three years Rascal Flatts find themselves in the Vocal Group of the Year category leading up to the ACM Awards. The trio admit that throughout the 2000s they'd gotten used to being included, so being back after a two-year absence is very sweet.
