Rascal Flatts to launch Bob That Head tour; Taylor Swift opens

Monday, May 5, 2008 – Rascal Flatts will launch a brand new tour this summer, the "Bob That Head Tour." The tour starts June 13 in St. Louis with opening acts Taylor Swift and songwriters Neil Thrasher and Wendell Mobley. The tour is named after a song on the trio's current disc.

"We hope our fans look forward to our shows as much as we do," said lead singer, Gary LeVox. "We want to give them an evening of entertainment that can take their minds off of life's pressures and lift their spirits, if just for a few hours. See you on the road."

Rascal Flatts' "Still Feels Good Tour" ranked as the best selling country tour for the first quarter of 2008 according to Pollstar. Since 2006, the vocal group has performed for 2 million fans in 156 cities.

Swift has enjoyed great success with her self-titled debut, topping both the country album and song charts.

Mobley and Thrasher are among Nashville's most successful songwriters. Between the two they have penned songs for Rascal Flatts - "Take Me There," "Fast Cars and Freedom" and "I Melt"; Kenny Chesney - "I Know How Forever Feels," "There Goes My Life," "I Lost It,"; Alabama's "We Can't Love Like This Anymore" plus songs for Trace Adkins, Montgomery Gentry, Pat Green, Lonestar, Reba McEntire, Diamond Rio, Carrie Underwood and Trisha Yearwood.

CD review - 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.
