In just six years, Rascal Flatts has become country music’s premier young headlining group, with an album that sold more than 8 million units and a truckload of awards from 2005.

Rascal Flatts — the trio of Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney — will be the featured act in a big country show at Alltel Arena on Friday, March 24, with Blake Shelton and Keith Anderson also on the bill. Tickets are $47.50 and $26.75 through all Ticketmaster outlets or the arena box office.

Such hits as “These Days,” “I’m Moving On,” “I Melt,” “Mayberry,” “Bless the Broken Road” and “Fast Cars and Freedom” have propelled Rascal Flatts to the elite category of country sellers. Also, Rascal Flatts is the reigning 2005 Vocal Group of the Year in all the major country music awards. The band has played the White House, become the national spokesmen for the American Red Cross and been the host of a farewell tribute to country supergroup Alabama, the band that most people liken Rascal Flatts to.

Rascal Flatts’ tour in 2004 was the No. 2 country tour of the year. This one, with Shelton and Anderson, is dubbed the “Me and My Gang Tour.”

Shelton’s newest album, “Blake Shelton’s Bar & Grill,” has already been certified gold and spawned the single “Some Beach,” which spent four weeks at No. 1 on the country charts. The next single was “Nobody But Me.” Shelton first rose to country prominence with the No. 1 hit “Austin” in 2001. He was the first male country artist to debut simultaneously in the top spot of both the Hot Country Singles and Tracks chart and the Top Country Singles chart.
