The four-hour energy packed show was filled with Rascal Flatts biggest hits, among them “My Wish,” “What Hurts The Most,” “Here Comes Goodbye,” “Bob The Head” and new smash single “Summer Nights.” More great music was showcased when Gill was brought on stage mid-way through Flatts set to perform “Whenever You Come Around” with Gary, Jay and Joe Don. Rucker performed with Flatts during their two finale tunes, Hootie & the Blowfish’s “Hold My Hand” and “Life Is A Highway,” which became an award-winning remake hit for Flatts.
