Rascal Flatts Delight Fans, Receive Honors From CMT During CMA Music Fest

Squeals of delight filled the Fan Fair Hall of the Nashville Convention Center when Rascal Flatts made their entrance at the CMT booth for a Saturday afternoon (June 12) performance and autograph session. Prior to a brief acoustic set that included “Bless the Broken Road” and “Life Is a Highway,” CMT senior vice president of music strategy Jay Frank and CMT Radio Live host Cody Alan presented the trio with plaques commemorating 10 years of No. 1 hits and multiplatinum success. In thanking fans for their continued support, Jay DeMarcus said he and bandmates Gary LeVox and Joe Don Rooney were especially appreciative of those who went out of their way to see them Saturday afternoon. “I got so many tweets from you guys last night about camping out on the sidewalk,” he said. The mini-concert and autograph session coincided with the 2010 CMA Music Festival which continues through Sunday (June 13) in downtown Nashville. Rascal Flatts are scheduled to perform Saturday night during the festival’s nightly concert series at LP Field. The lineup also includes Easton Corbin, Randy Houser, Martina McBride and the Zac Brown Band. View photos of Rascal Flatts at the CMT booth at the 2010 CMA Music Festival.
