Rascal Flatts Wrap Up First Leg Of Nothing Like This Tour And Announce Chris Young & Luke Bryan To Join Second Leg In 2011

Rascal Flatts wrapped the first leg of their “Nothing Like This Tour” this past weekend in Irvine, California closing out the year with 650,000 fans attending 56 shows. This tour, along with previous 2010 “Unstoppable Tour,” helped to bring in these year-end totals. The “Nothing Like This Tour” will continue with a second leg in 2011 with special guests Chris Young and Luke Bryan. 2011 tour dates to be announced soon.

The tour showcased the last ten years of Rascal Flatts music, taking the fans on a musical journey since their first single, “Prayin’ For Daylight,” in 2000.  Critics and fans exclaimed it was a tour to remember. “Their easy rapport on stage- and Gary LeVox’s voice- makes it so great to see this band live,” shared the Palm Beach Post.  The Oklahoman said, “Grace and poise dominated the expanded set list, which rolled on for nearly two hours.”  The Cleveland Plain Dealer praised the show’s production, “one of the most impressive stages of the Blossom season,” as did the Dallas Morning News with “the show staging was impressive, with huge multiple screens flanked by even larger images of the trio.”

The band will devote the remainder of this year promoting their soon-to-be released album, Nothing Like This, due in stories on November 16 on Big Machine Records, and new single “Why Wait,” their 24th Top Ten career hit. The band has planned appearances on numerous television shows surrounding the album’s release plus the upcoming CMA Awards on Nov 10 and nominations at the American Music Awards November 21 and the American Country Awards on December 6.
