Award winning country music group Rascal Flatts will spend the first half of 2013 on the road in continued support of their “Changed” album, released April 3rd of 2012.
The Farmers Insurance Presents “Changed Tour” starts 2013 off in Green Bay, Wisconsin on January 10th and finishes up in Tupelo, Mississippi on March 2nd.
A Historic Career
The band, which made its debut in early 2000, has had fourteen number-one singles, sold 21 million albums, and sold 7 million tickets on their way to becoming the most awarded country group of the past ten years.
Formed in a club in Nashville, it wasn’t long before the trio had earned a record deal, assembled an impressive body of work, and became known for their state of the art, high energy performances.
“We knew right away we had something special,” says Jay DeMarcus (bass, keyboards, and vocals).
In 2002, Rascal Flatts had their first number-one single — “These Days” — and had a little controversy, having the video for “I Melt” banned for partial nudity. By 2009, the band had nine number-one hits under its belt and became the first country group to perform in Chicago’s Wrigley Field.
Rascal Flatts received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the fall of 2012, as well as hosting the CMT Artists of the Year and their own 14th Annual A Home for the Holidays with Rascal Flatts.
A Powerful Draw
Rascal Flatts features lasers, pyrotechnics and many other special effects in their shows, and has enjoyed a lot of success as a touring band, being named the top selling artist in 2006.
The group has a strong following among youth ages 18-25, as well as being one of the most popular acts among 10-12 year olds. This is mainly due to their upbeat, enjoyable music and their fun and exciting shows, giving them an uncommon popularity with these groups for a country music act.
Rascal Flatts will be bringing their unique show and music to towns all across America, and tickets are on sale now, so if you want the best in family music and fun, pick up a few tickets and enjoy the best in country music today.
