Palm Harbor, FL – World-class golf will once again meet chart-topping country music at the 2016 Valspar Championship presented by BB&T when Rascal Flatts brings their harmony-filled sound to the Second Annual Valspar LIVE! event.
The trio of Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney, the best-selling country vocal group of the past decade with 15 No.1 singles, will perform on the Osprey Driving range at Innisbrook after the conclusion of play on Thursday, March 10 at approximately 7 p.m. The concert is free of charge to everyone attending the Valspar Championship, Tampa Bay’s PGA TOUR golf tournament, that day.
Currently nominated for “CMA Vocal Group of the Year”, Rascal Flatts has sales of more than 22.8 million albums, over 29 million digital downloads and six consecutive wins as the Country Music Association’s Vocal Group of the Year. Their top hits include “My Wish”, “God Bless the Broken Road”, “I’m Movin’ On” and “Life is a Highway.” The most recent Rascal Flatts album is “Rewind” which was released in 2014.
“We are thrilled to be able to once again bring a huge musical act to our tournament fans,” says Tournament Director Tracy West. “The concert just reinforces that the Valspar Championship is ‘the place to be in Tampa Bay’ during tournament week. It’s going to be a great night with Rascal Flatts and we would like to thank Ruth Eckerd Hall for helping make it possible.”
Last year’s first Valspar LIVE! was a huge success, drawing a crowd of more than 8,000 to see The Band Perry.
In addition to the PGA TOUR event with 144 of the world’s best golfers, Valspar Championship Week, has many other fan-friendly events besides Valspar LIVE!. New in 2016 is the kickoff event, The Par4Miler, a timed race on the Copperhead Course on Sunday, March 6. A celebrity pro-am follows on Monday, the official tournament Pro-Am will be Wednesday and the tournament begins on Thursday, the 10th with an expanded Family Fun Zone and numerous hospitality locations.
The winner of last year’s Valspar Championship was Jordan Spieth who counted the tournament as the first of five victories en route to winning the FedExCup and PGA TOUR Player of the Year honors. Spieth went on to win 2015’s first two major championships, The Masters and the U.S. Open, and finished the year with record winnings of more than $22 million.
