Rascal Flatts commemorated their final performance at the Fiddle & Steel Guitar Bar, where they began their career in 1999, with a private concert for SiriusXM listeners. Before joining the Supergroup on bass during their new single, “Riot,” “Today” show weekend anchor Lester Holt sat down with Rascal Flatts to discuss how one fateful night at Fiddle & Steel Guitar Bar – which is slated to close at the end of the year as new construction begins – turned three musicians into the most-awarded Country band of the past decade and how a bar napkin deal lead to the band’s name.
The best-selling Country vocal group of the past decade has sold over 22.9 million albums and over 30 million digital downloads since their musical debut in 2000. Rascal Flatts have delivered 15 No. 1 singles to the top of the charts, including the gold-certified title track from their latest album Rewind, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard’s Country Albums Chart, distinguishing them as one of only four acts during the SoundScan era to have eight consecutive studio albums debut in the top spot. Rascal Flatts has earned over 40 trophies from the ACAs, ACMs, AMAs, CMAs and more. In 2012, Rascal Flatts reached a new career milestone with over 7 million concert tickets sold and recently wrapped their high-octane REWIND TOUR 2014.
