Rascal Flatts were actually a success right from the start too. Their debut single, “Prayin’ for Daylight,” was an instant hit, for instance, and another track – “I’m Movin’ On” – from their first record won the Song of the Year at the 2000 ACM Awards. The years since have seen them go from strength to strength as well. So if by chance you decide to go and see them perform live, expect a packed-out stadium.
But let’s get back to the McInnis wedding. So the couple’s family friend Tammy knew how much the newlyweds adored the band and spotted an opportunity. She explained her plan in a video that was later posted to the Rascal Flatts Facebook page. In it, she says, “I knew that Rascal Flatts was up at Country USA, and I thought, ‘You know what, wouldn’t it be really cool if they could stop [by].’”
