Saying Hello to Rascal Flatts

Several years ago I was in New York City on business staying in Times Square.  I woke up early and wandered toward a Starbucks for my caffeine fix.  I ended up in front of ABC's Good Morning America studio on Broadway.  There was a guy out front trying desparately to get people in the studio which was less than half full.  At that time apparently no one cared that Rascal Flatts was about to perform.  I certainly didn't... in fact I had no clue who they were.  On top of that, even though I am a lifelong Texan, I don't particularly like country music. Having a full cup of coffee and a little time on my hands I wandered in to listen.  While waiting I remembered that my daughter had mentioned Rascal Flatts before.  I called her at college, woke her up and explained where I was.  She went from a bleary eyed hello to screaming "OMG you are with Rascal Flatts?!"  She was a fan I so I promised to have my picture made with them.  I stayed to listen and did in fact get my picture made (feeling like an idiot!). Jump ahead to today and I admit, I am a big fan!  I have since gone out of my way to see Rascal Flatts at GMA again when they premiered an album and taken my daughters to a concert.  So needless to say, I am looking forward to the new album coming out April 7th.  They were nice guys, the lyrics are compelling and the music is exceptionally good.  Their new song, "Here Comes Goodbye" is another hit waiting to happen. So take a listen.  Maybe you'll get hooked like I did! Tom
