They didn’t get the key to the city.

But Nashville mayor Karl Dean surprised Rascal Flatts with a special proclamation during the Grand Ole Opry last night (Dec. 14).

The boys were at the Opry to wind up a year of celebrating the group’s 10th anniversary when the mayor delivered the last present.

“This is such a privilege to be here tonight to thank you in person for all that you do for the community and for the children in this city,” he said.

That includes raising millions of dollars for a children’s hospital here in town.

Flatts’ Jay DeMarcus said onstage, “We love calling Nashville home and thank everyone in this city who have helped us help the community and for being a part of our career.”
