Rascal Flatts, Journey Will Sing at CMT Music Awards

Rascal Flatts and rock legends Journey
will team up for the first time at the CMT Music Awards on Wednesday night
(June 6).

At rehearsals on Tuesday, Rascal Flatts’ Jay DeMarcus told a CMT crew, “I’ve got to tell you, tonight was
amazing because we’ve dreamed about collaborating with Journey forever. So to be up there onstage with those guys who
are heroes. You hate to say ‘heroes’ growing up, but as kids of the ’80s, their music was iconic for that era. I was such
a huge fan, so to be able to stand onstage beside some your heroes is the best feeling on the entire planet. You can’t describe
it. You can’t put it into words — and it’s nerve-wracking!”

Joe Don Rooney added, “It is a little nerve-wracking,
but what’s cool is to see that these guys are as hungry as ever to perform and to play and to make music. It’s so cool with
[lead vocalist Arnel Pineda] in the band now. It’s been this injection. This guy’s got serious energy. He’s got serious pipes.
He can really, really sing and really bring it. It’s good to see these guys 30 years in the business, and they’re still just
dying to get on stage and make music for the fans. I think it’s exciting for us to see that.”

Gary LeVox concluded,
“As a band, they’ve made some of the most timeless music in music history. So to be able to share the same stage and sing
and play with those guys is just a dream come true.”
