Nine years ago today, on Oct. 8, 2011, Rascal Flatts were officially welcomed as members of the Grand Ole Opry. The trio was inducted by Little Jimmy Dickens. After performing “Why Wait,” “I Won’t Let Go” and “Life Is a Highway,” the threesome — Gary LeVox, Joe Don Rooney and Jay DeMarcus — were surprised by a video message from then-president George W. Bush.
