Vince Gill Invites Rascal Flatts to Join The Grand Ole Opry.
During a performance at the Grand Ole Opry, Tuesday, September 27th, Rascal Flatts was surprised on stage by Vince Gill. Gill popped up between songs, and definitely took the boys, Gary Levox, Jay Demarcus, and Jon Don Rooney off guard! The boys of Rascal Flatts were even more surprised when they realized that Vince Gill was their to extend an invitation to join the iconic Opry! The reactions from all three are pretty priceless, and it is more than evident how much the invitation means to each of them. When Levox regained his composure and found his voice, he let the audience in attendance know that the invitation is more than just an invitation.
“You know, we’ve gotten to do a lot of amazing things in our career like going to Iraq and visiting our soldiers, selling out arenas, and doing a lot of magnificent things that … you can’t even dream that big. But all three of us grew up listening to the Opry: Jay with his grandfather, me with my grandmother, and Jon Don with his entire family. You can’t even put into words what this means to us. When we first signed our record deal in 1999, our main goal was to play the Grand Ole Opry and someday be members of the Grand Ole Opry. Thank you so much for being here.” – Gary Levox
The group will be formally inducted on Saturday, October 8th during the Opry’s 86th birthday weekend. The show will air live at 8pm (CT ) on GAC.
