Rascal Flatts may be one of the busiest bands in country music today, but even while preparing for their upcoming winter tour, Thaw Out 2012, the guys still make time to support America's troops at home and abroad.
The Insider's Kevin Frazier sat down with the band before they performed for injured war vets at the Bush Center Warrior Open, a golf event held by former President George W. Bush.
Speaking on the band's recent visit to Iraq to perform for the US troops, singer Gary LeVox said, "It was great, and I think for the three of us it truly changed our lives because it was the first time that we got what it cost to live in America and that it wasn't free. we got to actually visually see what the home of the brave and the land of the free stands for. We got to live it and the true price of freedom was right in our face."
Rascal Flatts' upcoming tour Thaw Out 2012 begins on January 12, 2012 in Charleston, West Virginia.
