Hometown Heroes Save the Day
When the little rascals (Rascall Flatts) pulled out of their show at the tonight’s Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo, three cowboys rode in to save the day. Apparently, the lead singer for RF had sumfin’ wong wif his wittle fwoat. Joe Nichols along with Houstonians Jack Ingram and Clay Walker stepped up to the challenge of a last second call and delivered in fine fashion.
Joe Nichols started things off with some of his hits and a few of the lesser known tracks, but sound issues early on hurt the performance. Jack Ingram shocked the house by turning in the best performance. It was obvious that he was excited to have the opportunity to play at the rodeo in front of his hometown… excited enough that despite being in New York City at 1:30 PM, he still made it in plenty of time to rock the house. The night ended up with Houston favorite – Clay Walker. As usual, he turned in a fine performance, and as usual, the fans loved it.
By the end of the evening, I don’t think there was a person in the stadium who remembered the name Rascall Flatts.
