I've written before about the "business" of country music... about the myriad of ways to make a buck... from tours and merchandise to recording and endorsements. It's all hard work and, if you're lucky, it pays off in the end. If you're in demand, smart, creative, and a little lucky, the sky is the limit on what can carry your brand, and what can fill your bank account.
Rascal Flatts have been tied to JC Penney’s American Living clothing brand in the past, but now the trio wants to create their own line of clothing. CMT Daily Roundup quotes Rascal Flatts as saying, “We’re right now in the design phase, but it’s definitely something we want to do. We’re looking for the right partner to help us implement those things right now.” The guys credit their stylist, John Murphy, for their style and have been working with him on some concepts for a possible clothing line. Next on the schedule for Rascal Flatts, a performance with Natasha Bedingfield and Lionel Richie on the CMA Awards next week.
You can hear Rascal Flatts every day on KIXS 108.
