Little Kids Rock with Rascal Flatts

Friday, February 20, 2015 – Rascal Flatts announced a CMA Foundation grant of $150,000 to national not-for-profit Little Kids Rock on Wednesday during a special visit to Miramonte Elementary School in Los Angeles.

The band spent time with the children at the school, playing music and brought with them a surprise delivery of musical instruments. Miramonte Elementary School is one of nearly 1,300 public schools across the country supported by Little Kids Rock, which donates teacher training, instruments and educational resources to public school districts facing budget cuts and elimination of music programs.

"With all three of us having children ourselves, organizations like Little Kids Rock really resonate with us," said Joe Don Rooney. "To be able to give back to young music makers and to do it with our friends at the CMA Foundation is really humbling and the best part of what we do."

Next week will see Rascal Flatts embark on Rascal Flatts Vegas Riot! the first ever country residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel beginning Feb. 25. The trio invited The Voice winner Craig Wayne Boyd to join them.

And then, the cool little bass line introducing "Let It Snow" helps differentiate this act's version from possibly millions of other versions. Much of "The »»»
Rewind CD review - Rewind
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. In fact, they make it quite clear from the second the play button is struck with the hard rocking "Payback" thanks to lots of electric guitar and rocking vocals from LeVox. »»»
