Country starsRascal Flatts have been praised by the mayor of Nashville, Tennessee for their charity work in the city.
The Life is a Highway hit-makers are enthusiastic supporters of the Jason Foundation, which raises awareness of teen suicide in their adopted hometown. They also work to raise the profile of a children's hospital in the city.
During the group's appearance at the Grand Ole Opry on Tuesday, Nashville mayor Karl Dean delivered a proclamation in honor of their work for good causes - and the musicians were delighted with the praise.
Bassist Jay DeMarcus said, "We love calling Nashville home and thank everyone in this city who have (sic) helped us help the community and for being a part of our career."
Rascal Flatts have previously been presented with the Make a Wish Foundation's Shining Star Award and the Nashville Symphony's Harmony Award in honor of their philanthropy.
