Country superstar trio Rascal Flatts made headlines last month when they announced their Pennsylvania date with the legendary Journey. Due to popular demand of the once-in-a-lifetime show, the groups decided to add a second date in Atlantic City, New Jersey on August 4th at Boardwalk Hall.

Their first date together will be held on August 1st in Hershey, PA. The Voice winner Cassadee Pope will open both shows.

Tickets for their Atlantic City show will go-onsale through Ticketmaster this Friday, May 10th at 10 am EST.

Rascal Flatts and Journey first performed together on the 2012 CMT Music Awards when they closed the show with Journey’s megahit “Don’t Stop Believin’.”  The two groups also participated in a special edition of the critically-acclaimed CMT Crossroads series during Super Bowl XLVII in 2013.

The Band Perry’s “Pioneer” Goes To No. 1

The Band Perry topped the Billboard Country Chart this week with their sophomore album, Pioneer. With 129,000 units sold, the sibling trio also landed in second place on the Billboard 200 chart and were just shy of Justin Timberlake’s sales of The 20/20 Experience by 10,000 copies.

TBP were ecstatic and grateful to hear the big news as they took to Facebook & Twitter:

Wow!!! #Pioneer debuts at #1 Top Country Album AND #2 @Billboard 200!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!

The album’s lead single, “Better Dig Two,” hit number one earlier this year. On track for seemingly similar success is the current single, “Done,” which jumped from 20 to 7 on the Country Digital Sales chart.

If you have not already, make sure you buy your copy of Pioneer! We promise you will not be disappointed.

TBP will also be hitting the road this summer with Rascal Flatts and Cassadee Pope. That is a show you do not want to miss! Visit www.thebandperry.com for more info and tour dates.

Congratulations to The Band Perry! We are huge fans ourselves and are very excited for them.

Rascal Flatts, one of the top selling touring acts in country music today having sold over seven million concert tickets in the last 10 years, will embark on a brand new tour this summer, Farmers Insurance Presents Rascal Flatts “Live & Loud.” The 34-city run will launch on Friday, May 31 in Jones Beach, New York at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theatre with special guests The Band Perry and 2012’s The Voice winner Cassadee Pope.

Rascal Flatts wrapped their “Changed Tour” earlier this month and ended 2012 having played before one million fans.  They are the best-selling country vocal group of the past decade and with the #1 debut of their latest album, CHANGED, they have the distinction of being one of only four acts to have seven consecutive studio albums debut in the top spot on the Billboard Country Albums chart during the Soundscan era.  Since their musical debut in 2000, the band has sold over 21 million albums, 25 million digital downloads and delivered 14 #1 singles to the top of the charts.  Rascal Flatts is the most awarded Country group of the past decade, earning over 40 trophies from the ACAs, ACMs, AMAs, CMAs, People’s Choice Awards and more.

The Band Perry – comprised of siblings Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry –combines classic Country with an eclectic infusion of Rock and Soul that is rounded out by perfect three-part harmonies. The sibling trio’s latest offering “Better Dig Two,” garnered the family band a multi-week #1 and their third ascend to the top of the charts. The lead single has been certified platinum for sales of over one million copies and marks the fastest-rising of their career. They will release their sophomore album, PIONEER, on April 2.
At just 23, Cassadee Pope’s unique vocals and powerful performances stole the national spotlight during Season 3 of “The Voice.”  The reigning star of the NBC hit primetime show wowed from the start with offers from all four judges during the blind auditions before accepting with Team Blake (Shelton). The talented singer/songwriter has already appeared on Today, Live! With Kelly & Michael, The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and performed with Train on New Year’s Eve With Carson Daily. She will release new, original music later this spring.

Cassadee Pope signs with Republic Nashville

Cassadee Pope.

Cassadee, previously released music as part of rock group Hey Monday, and her own solo material. This is her first major country music recording contract.

Cassadee shares:

Team Blake wins second straight season of The Voice

Congratulations to Blake Shelton and his finalist, Cassadee Pope! Team Blake has once again, for the second straight season, and second time in 2012, won NBC’s The Voice. Team Blake actually had 2/3 chances to take the title after two of his contestants made the final. Team Blake was both the champion and the runner-up, dominating this season. All three finalists received a brand new KIA from Cee-lo Green, however, as an early Christmas gift!

Blake had it in the bag after it was announced team Cee-lo came in third place. Cassadee, who started off on the show as a pop-rocker, has turned closer to pop/rock-country under guidance from her coach. It isn’t a stretch t o see her coach continue to be a part of her career, if his past involvement in his acts like Dia Frampton, Gwen Sebastian, and Raelynn are anything to go by.

Do you think Team Blake can do it again next season? Season 4 of The Voice kicks off in March, 2013 (and the blind auditions were already filmed before this season ended!). What was your favorite moment from this season?
