It was announced today that Rascal Flatts was chosen for a 2011 star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame by the Walk of Fame Committee of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. The band was selected from hundreds of nominations sent to the committee.
“I am at such a loss for words that I can’t even describe how I feel,” says lead singer Gary LeVox. “What a great honor and symbol of accomplishment. “There are only a few things I can think of that are as big of an honor as receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” shared Jay DeMarcus, background vocalist and bass player.
Lead guitarist and background vocalist Joe Don Rooney said, “This is the kind of stuff you dream of growing up as a kid. Having our name on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has to be one of the coolest things that’s ever happened to Rascal Flatts. I’m honored and completely humbled.”
Additional 2011 musical recipients include Melissa Etheridge, Los Tigres Del Norte, the Go-Go’s, Slash, Will i Am, and Bebe & Cece Winans and posthumously Buddy Holly and Louis Prima. And more celebrities from motion pictures, television and live performance theatre were also named.
Date of the presentation for Rascal Flatts has not yet been determined.
