Rascal Flatts 

The trio Rascal Flatts has emerged as the top-selling country act of the early 21st century, with a quartet of platinum-selling releases and a pop style that The New York Times recently reviewed as 'wholesome." Like the majority of new Nashville talent, its country cred is expressed by token signifiers like a pedal steel or a slight twang. Its sound is actually soft, ballad-based arena rock (with plenty of bluesy guitar acrobatics) aimed squarely at the heartland, with gentle, pretty harmonies that evoke more Crosby, Stills and Nash than Flatt and Scruggs. The latest album, Still Feels Good, came out late last year. Rising country vocalist Kellie Pickler, who dresses for Nashville Star but evokes Dolly Parton, opens. Tickets $49.75. — Alison Fensterstock
