Rascal Flatts broke onto the country music scene in 2000 with pop-flavored songs that hit a home run with young audiences: “Prayin’ for Daylight,” “This Everyday Love” and “While You Loved Me” made the Top 10, and “These Days,” the first single from their second album, hit No. 1. More top hits followed, along with a slew of awards, top-selling albums and a hit version of “Life Is a Highway” from the animated movie “Cars.” The trio, which has a new album due out in November, stops in the Valley with guest artists Kellie Pickler and Chris Young.
