Why Do Country Fans go Crazy for Rascal Flatts? Rhythm and Roots Tour 2016 -- Chicago

Why Do Country Fans go Crazy for Rascal Flatts? Rhythm and Roots Tour 2016 -- Chicago

So I’m recently, within the last two to three years, a country fan. One band I’ve never really gotten on board with is the Rascal Flatts.  I mean, their songs are fun but never felt the need to buy their music or go to a concert. 

Well this summer I bought the Mega Pass to country concerts at the World… ugh fine, the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre if we are being “correct.”  The pass included tickets to some of my favorites like Florida Georgia Line, Miranda Lambert, and Dierks Bently. 

The pass also included tickets to see Rascal Flatts.  My sister and friend are both pretty big fans. Side note- Jamie would like to know why they didn’t feel the need to play Mayberry.  An answer would be great.

rascal 2Well I’ve heard loud crowds before. Top ones?  On July 5th, 2014 at the 4th celebration in St. Louis when the Fray sang How to Save a Life and when Tim McGraw sang Humble and Kind at the 2016 Windy City Lakeshake.

Well during the Rascal Flatts concert, fans were loud. A lot. I don’t blame them, I was singing right along with them!

But I was wondering why they had such a draw.  Why do fans go so crazy over this band and their music?

They have been around for a LONG time, 16 years to be exact, but I don’t’ think that’s the answer.

Ahh.  Let’s put How to Save a Life, Humble and Kind and Racal Flatts songs like Life is a Highway, Bless the Broken Road, and My Wish all in one category.  What do they have in common?

They are all good intentioned songs with positive messages.  They are kind.

With all the shit going on around us right now, it’s nice to know that goodness still prevails somewhere. Not everyone is spewing hate for their neighbor.  A lot of these artists are spreading good messages and love.

It helps that the three guys seem to be genuine and kind.  So maybe they got me tonight.  I guess you can call me a fan.  That’s the most amazing thing about live music though, right? You get a whole different perspective about bands you’ve never thought twice about before.

Thanks for a good show guys and see you next time you’re in town!
