Rascal Flatts Being Honored With Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
Rascal Flatts have won an armload of major accolades, from ACM and CMA Awards, to People’s Choice Awards — and even a Grammy. But the sweet-voiced country trio will take their career to a new height on Sept. 17, when they are slated to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will present the group — consisting of lead singer Gary LeVox, bassist and singer Jay DeMarcus and guitarist and singer Joe Don Rooney — with a star in a ceremony that begins at 11:30AM. Rascal Flatts’ star will reside in front of the Sergeant Supply Store at 6664 Hollywood Boulevard, according to Country Music Is Love.
The group, whose current album ‘Changed’ has revitalized their career, have seen their last seven albums debut in the top spot on the Billboard charts and have placed 12 No. 1 singles, including ‘These Days,’ ‘Fast Cars and Freedom’ and ‘Bless the Broken Road.’ The Flatts routinely rank among the top touring acts in the music business, and are currently embarked on their 2012 Changed Tour, which also features Little Big Town, Eli Young Band and Edens Edge.
Rascal Flatts will perform their new single, ‘Come Wake Me Up,’ on ‘The Tonight Show With Jay Leno’ the night of their Walk of Fame ceremony. Earlier this month, Vince Gill was also honored with his own Walk of Fame medallion.
