Rascal Flatts Joke About Getting to Know the Untouchable Kelsea Ballerini on Tour

Rascal Flatts will be busy this summer. The trio are out on the road for their Rhythm and Roots Tour with Kelsea Ballerini and Chris Lane. They say it’ll be a “great summer” — well, as long as they actually get to know their tourmates.

The Rhythm and Roots Tour kicked off June 17 in Charlotte, N.C., and they’ll be getting rowdy on the road through mid-September. When they stopped by to chat with us at Taste of Country Nights, they had some interesting things to say about their female tour partner. They finally got to say hi to her — kind of.

“We finally got past her security and got to say hi to her last week … Well from 10 feet away … It was more like a wave hi. But she seems really sweet as far as we can tell … except for the piercings and the tattoos,” they all chime in between laughter.

Of course they’re joking, but they’re still very much looking forward to the three month run with the “Love Me Like You Mean It” singer and Lane.

“It should be a great summer if we finally have a conversation with her, but Chris is great,” Jay DeMarcus says.

They admit it’s been an “awesome first two weeks,” and there’s lots more to go. Rascal Flatts may be stopping by your city; check out their full list of tour dates for more information.
