Rascal Flatts Tapped for Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Rascal Flatts have been selected to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce’s Walk of Fame committee announced Thursday (June 17). The star will be unveiled sometime in 2011, although a specific date and location have not been confirmed. Others scheduled to be inducted into the Walk of Fame next year include Melissa Etheridge, Los Tigres Del Norte, the Go-Go’s, Slash, Will i Am and BeBe and CeCe Winans. The late Buddy Holly and Louis Prima will be inducted posthumously. “To have only wanted to make music since childhood, this far exceeds any expectations I ever had,” said Rascal Flatts lead vocalist Gary LeVox. Guitarist Joe Don Rooney noted, “Having our name on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has to be one of the coolest things that’s ever happened to Rascal Flatts. I’m honored and completely humbled.” Bassist Jay DeMarcus added, “I am so humbled, filled with gratitude and completely overcome with emotion. … I guess we’ve really done something after all.”
