Rascal Flatts Believe Opening Acts Important To Shows


(Nashville, TN) -- Rascal Flatts' Joe Don Rooney says it's not just the headliner that makes a great concert. The country star explains that the opening acts matter as well.


Rascal Flatts is currently on their "Rewind" tour, which features Sheryl Crow and Gloriana as the openers. The group was forced to take an unplanned break from the road last weekend when singer Gary LeVox became sick. But they'll resume their trek this weekend with shows in Arizona and California.
