Rascal Flatts Announce Rhythm and Roots Tour

Kelsea Ballerini, Newcomer Chris Lane Open the Summer Shows

They just completed another successful Vegas residency, but Rascal Flatts are hardly taking a breather.

They’re hitting the road this summer on their Rhythm and Roots Tour featuring two-time ACM nominee Kelsea Ballerini and up-and-comer Chris Lane on most dates.

“It’s really important to us that each year our shows are fresh and exciting for our fans,” band member Jay DeMarcus said in a statement announcing the tour. “We put a lot of thought into how to do that this year, and mixing it up in Vegas was really fun, so we decided to continue with this new change of pace out on the road this summer. We are so pumped because no one has ever seen Rascal Flatts like this before.”
