Rascal Flatts‘ Joe Don Rooney revealed to CMT Radio that the group is planning a multi-artist music festival, called “Flatts Fest,” for July of 2011.
“It’s definitely going to be a multiple-artist bill for sure,” Rooney said. “It’s going to be some big names. It’s going to be a lot of fun. It’s just going to be a big party.”
“Country really hasn’t had like a Lollapalooza. There’s a Buzzfest that happens here in Nashville. There’s Ozzfest that happens nationally. … We [thought], ‘Let’s do a Flatts Fest. Let’s invite some big name artists out and just have fun and let the fans enjoy a big day of music, a big night.” While no specific information about “Flatts Fest” has been announced or confirmed, Rooney says, “It’ll be a blast.”
