One band. Ten albums. Seventeen #1 hits. Over 23 million records and 10 million tickets sold.

Rascal Flatts is just as proud of the philanthropic work they have done over the years as their musical accomplishments as the most awarded group of the past decade. Rascal Flatts—Gary Levox, Jay Demarcus and Joe Don Rooney—started donating their talents to help children over 10 years ago when they started working with make a wish foundation. The band hasn’t stopped since and are some of the top wish-granters in the country. Their chart-topping song, “my wish” is also used on ESPN as the soundtrack for its series that follows the make-a-wish foundation as they turn dreams into reality for children with life-threatening illnesses.

Since then, they’ve also contributed countless hours of their time—and $4 million—to Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s hospital at Vanderbilt which is among the nation’s leading pediatric facilities, where the Rascal Flatts pediatric surgery center was named in recognition of the trio’s long-standing involvement.

“We wanted to do something in our community first and foremost, and we had heard great things about this place,” the band said. “There’s just no other facility like it. It is a magical place.”
