Country trio Rascal Flatts goes from the stage to the basketball court

Now that’s how you do it.

Country trio Rascal Flatts turned in their stage for a basketball court June 9th to sing the National Anthem at Game 3 of the NBA playoffs at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio, and wowed everyone in attendance for the game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors with their amazing vocals and unique harmonies.

Making it that much more special was the fact that Rascal Flatts members and cousins Gary LeVox and Jay Demarcus actually grew up in Ohio as kids. Rascal Flatts joined other music powerhouses such as Usher and Metallica in the singing of the National Anthem during the NBA Finals.

Rascal Flatts has been known to love sports and sing the anthem at a number of widely televised sporting events, including a smattering of NFL and college football games along with the illustrious Kentucky Derby and World Series.

Just a couple days after their performance in Cleveland, Rascal Flatts found themselves back in Nashville, playing the big stage at LP Field in Nashville during CMA Fest on June 11 and announcing plans to open for the illustrious rock group The Rolling Stones on July 4th in Indianapolis.
