In the past five years, Rascal Flatts have raised more than $3 million for the Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. Because of the band’s determination to make a difference, the hospital named their pediatric surgery center the Rascal Flatts Surgery Center. Now, more attached to the hospital’s children than ever, the band is jumping into its next project.

“This year, we’re actually getting ready to start a new thing with a different wing over there with the neonatal center,” says band member Gary LeVox, according to his label, Big Machine Records.

“‘Cause, you know, it’s the only thing, medically, that they just have no clue on why children are born premature,” he continues. “So we’re going to do what we can to help try to find out and see if we can’t just be a small part of trying to change history a little bit.”

All their philanthropic endeavors have not slowed the band musically in the least. Right now, they’re gearing up for their April 3 record, ‘Changed,’ and they’re also busy touring through January and February.
