Rascal Flatts Rename 2012 Tour to Support ‘Changed’ Album

A few weeks ago, we announced Rascal Flatts’ American Band Tour dates. But as of today, the American Band Tour is no more. But fear not, ticketholders! Rascal Flatts will still be delivering their great get-down country tunes this year — they’ve just changed the tour name to the Farmers Insurance Presents Changed Tour. The tour’s new name honors the band’s eighth studio album release by the same name.

For the first time on a Rascal Flatts headlining tour, the opening acts will be all country bands, with no solo performers. Look for Little Big Town, Eli Young Band and Edens Edge to take the stage, with Thompson Square replacing EYB at a few stops. The five-month tour kicks off on June 15 in Hartford, Conn., and will hit approximately three dozen cities before it ends in October.

On Sunday, the Flatts took the stage at the 2012 Academy of Country Music Awards, where they were joined by Steve Martin on banjo as they performed their latest single, ‘Banjo,’ appropriately. The live stage show was meant to honor the late Earl Scruggs, who passed away on March 28, 2012 at the age of 88.
