The Greatest Gift of All
It's the big things - and sometimes the little things - that make Rascal Flatts' Christmas album "The Greatest Gift of All" stand out. On the macro level, the country vocal trio put a little funk - well, as much funk as three Nashville guys can muster - into "Go Tell It on The Mountain."

Don't worry. Just because Rascal Flatts' Gary LeVox sings, "Try to talk to George Strait into givin' us an encore" on the hit single and title track doesn't mean that the traditional country giant is all of a sudden a cornerstone for the trio that has been front and center of the pop country sound.

Concert Review: Underwood keeps it world class
There are different levels of fame. There are quite a few artists who go by a mononym; no one asks "Sting or Bono "who?"
And then there is an artist whose surname is used as a verb. Being "Underwooded" is a slang phrase used to describe car vandalism. That's American Idol's best-selling artist fame.... »»»
