One of the greatest things about country music is how the artists always find a way to give back to their fans. Rascal Flatts have been one of the best about this, and spend as much time as they can giving back through charity work. It’s no secret that the three boys are great with their fans, and this was the case for a mom and her autistic son.
Traci, the writer of Beneath My Heart blog, met the trio backstage at a recent concert. Although she thought the group was named after Gary LeVox, (thinking his name was Rascal), she made sure she let him know about her autistic son who was a singer and that the group was the only artist that he owned every CD of. She gave him her business card and Gary promised he’d check out her son’s YouTube channel later.
A few days later, Traci had an e-mail from Gary’s assistant asking for her mailing address because Gary had something for her son. She almost deleted it but then realized who it was from. Gary sent Traci and her son, Jonathan, a hand written letter of encouragement for him to follow his dreams of being a singer.
