Flatt Out Fun

By now you know that Columbus is home to a multitude of celebrities, just check our covers every month. However, Rascal Flatts, who touts two members (cousins Gary LeVox and Jay DeMarcus) from our fair city, is certainly at the top of our list of favorites. Lucky for us, the entire band, including Joe Don Rooney, (who adopted Columbus as his second home) will make a stop in their hometown on January 21st at Nationwide Arena.

Founded in 1997 Rascal Flatts' has easily become the top selling Country act of all time. Their studio albums have accounted for more than twenty-six single releases. All of have charted within the top 20 or higher on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, including more than eleven number ones. But, Rascal Flatts’ music spans more than just Country radio. Their songs are also heard on Pop and Contemporary stations, which has only expanded their fan base.

Now the band is in the process of adding fashion designers to their list of accomplishments. The band, who has promoted JC Penny’s American Living clothing brand in the past, has considered creating their own clothing line for a while and plans are now moving forward to make it a reality thanks to their stylist John Murphy. They are currently pitching the designs to local retailers, so maybe by January we’ll be able to be decked out Rascal Flatt gear for the show. But, first you have to get your tickets to the show.
