Country music sensations Rascal Flatts have been honored for their charity work.
The band – which is part of the Red Cross National Celebrity Cabinet and have been honored by the Make-A-Wish Foundation – were honored by Nashville mayor Karl Dean during their show at the Grand Ole Opry this week.
“This is such a privilege to be here tonight to thank you in person for all that you do for the community and for the children in this city,” said Mayor Dean.
Some of the charity work the band has been involved in this year includes a campaign with The Jason Foundation to prevent youth suicide, and the My Country: Smash Hits charity album for the Fisher House Foundation. The band received the 2008 Academy of Country Music/Home Depot Humanitarian Award for their $2 million donation to the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville.
