Rascal Flatts Recognized for Charity Work in Nashville

Rascal Flatts have been presented a proclamation from the city of Nashville in recognition of the band’s charity work in the community. Nashville Mayor Karl Dean delivered the proclamation during the trio’s Tuesday night (Dec. 14) appearance on the Grand Ole Opry. Rascal Flatts have been active supporters of the Jason Foundation, a nonprofit organization raising awareness of the issue of youth suicide, and the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. They have also been honored with the Make a Wish Foundation’s Shining Star Award and the Nashville Symphony’s Harmony Award. In accepting the latest honor from the mayor, band member Jay DeMarcus said, “We love calling Nashville home and thank everyone in this city who have helped us help the community and for being a part of our career.” Rascal Flatts resume their Nothing Like This tour on Jan. 14 in Sioux Falls, S.D., with opening acts Luke Bryan and Chris Young.
