NASHVILLE, TN (October 10, 2016) – CMA Awards Vocal Group Of The Year Nominee Rascal Flatts wrapped their wildly successful headlining RHYTHM AND ROOTS TOUR this past weekend, in a trek that saw the superstar trio play to packed houses across the country throughout the summer and into the fall. A summer stacked with highlights, the tour also saw the trio celebrate a major milestone of 10 million tickets sold to date, as critics and fans alike relished in the group’s ability to execute standout performances year after year.
“The ‘Rhythm and Roots’ tour [crowd] was dressed for a good time…And that’s exactly what they were in for when award-winning country trio Rascal Flatts took the stage.”
“After 16 consecutive years on tour: They have this live performance bit down to a science without losing any of the enthusiasm or heart.”
“They commanded the stage from the first song all the way to the end of the encore. Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney entertained everyone, from those in the front all the way to the lawn seats.”
“[The crowd] got what they came for and have come to expect from the country-pop trio: an always energetic, very entertaining 90 minutes or so of hits and banter.”
“The fun continued throughout their set, but so did the hits…High energy tracks ‘Summer Nights,’ ‘I Like the Sound of That’ and ‘Banjo’ kicked off the show before the group slowed things down with a medley of their piano-based ballads including ‘Come Wake Me Up,’ ‘I Melt’ and ‘I Won’t Let Go.’”
This summer also marked Rascal Flatts’ 16th #1, with the infectious hit-single “I Like The Sound Of That,” which was recently certified PLATINUM by the RIAA. The news comes after the trio announced they will release THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL, their first-ever Christmas album on October 21. The much-anticipated 10-track collection was produced by Rascal Flatts and features moving and powerhouse performances that the trio is known for, while offering personal touches to some fan-favorite staples of the festive season. The album is available for pre-order now at RascalFlatts.com.
