Rascal Flatts are spending the weekend in Florida. The trio went to Universal Studios in Orlando where they are taping The Ellen Degeneres Show. The show will air on Friday, April 2. I love to see our country artists visit Ellen.
She’s a great interviewer and always seems to be able to make her guests feel comfortable – and they pretty much open up and talk to her about anything. They will also be singing their current top 20 song, “Unstoppable.” (Photo Credit: Kevin Winter at 35th Annual People’s Choice Awards)
Have you been to their web site lately? They’ve got a video up on their home page, and it’s a a lot of the scenes from their C.S.I. episode. And if you missed that show, they also have a link to CBS, where you can watch the entire episode. I enjoyed seeing them on C.S.I. I don’t think those performances are going to win any of the guys an Emmy. They really aren’t great actors – but that isn’t why I watched. They’re great singers, and I’m a big fan, so I really enjoyed the show.
Whenever I visit an artists web site, I always check two things there — “News” and “Tour”. What I found for Rascal Flatts is that they don’t have any kind of summer tour scheduled right now. They do have a few dates up, one in Lake Tahoe, Nev., on July 16, and one at the Indiana State Fair in Indianapolis on Aug. 7. I’m sure we’ll be seeing them a lot of other places during the summer months.
The Ellen Show was the only thing under “News” that is coming up. They did have an interview with People.com linked. That was Joe Don’s interview about Tiffany’s pregnancy, and the second baby for the couple due in September.
Do you all remember the Birdhouse Auction? A lot of country artists painted a birdhouse, which was auctioned off to raise money for the W.O. Smith Music School. The house that our guys painted sold to the highest bidder for $1010.00. The auction ended on March 23, 2010.
I’ve got things to do today – looks like it’s going to be a very nice Saturday. I hope you all enjoy your day, too! Thanks for all the email, I love hearing from each of you.
