In American Idol’s final season, 15-year-old Tristan McIntosh has been burning up the stage with her powerful renditions of country tunes, including Carrie Underwood’s “Last Name,” and now, Rascal Flatts’ “What Hurts the Most.”
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.
Rascal Flatts have conquered the stage, and now they're about to take over your TV, too. The country supergroup will be featured as actors and composers in a forthcoming television mini-series about the Civil War.
Naturally, most people think of Nashville as country music's mecca, but Las Vegas is quickly becoming a second home for the genre. The most recent act to take residency is Rascal Flatts, who are booked for a short run at the Joint, which is located inside the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
Country superstars Rascal Flatts get along, but they don't always agree. There is at least one song on the trio's new 'Rewind' album that didn't initially get a full vote of confidence from lead singer Gary LeVox, but they have a process for working out their differences.
