February 25, 2010 at 1:30 PM (PT)
LYRIC STREET/NASHVILLE group RASCAL FLATTS gathered YESTERDAY (2/24) , during CRS 2010 (COUNTRY RADIO SEMINAR), to thank Country radio for supporting them throughout their 10 years together. A party was held at NASHVILLE’s RENAISSANCE HOTEL to relive the band’s favorite memories with Country radio and celebrate the hundreds of programmers and on-air talent who have been part of their ascension on the charts over the last decade.
RASCAL FLATTS gave a special acoustic performance for the more than 300 assembled radio guests. The set included a rendition of “Church On Cumberland Road” with GRAND VISTA/NINE NORTH artist MARTY RAYBON along with their own version of “Jessie’s Girl” called “Bubba’s Girl,” which they created during their thirteen-week radio promo tour in 2000.
The group honored several Country radio stations and programmers who have given them support over the last 10 years. Celebrated for most radio airplay overall were CLEAR CHANNEL Country WQIK/JACKSONVILLE, FL, CLEAR CHANNEL Country WTQR/GREENSBORO, and CITADEL Country KUBL (K-BULL 93)/SALT LAKE CITY. CLEAR CHANNEL Country WCOL/Columbus, CLEAR CHANNEL Country KNIX/PHOENIX and CITADEL Country WKHX/ATLANTA were honored for the most spins for the band’s first single, “Prayin’ For Daylight” while WILKS BROADCASTING Country KBEQ/KANSAS CITY received the designation of being the first radio station in the country to play their debut single. All honorees received a custom Rascal Flatts 10-year commemorative LES PAUL guitar.
