Image Courtesy Big Machine RecordsRascal Flatts launch their nine-show Vegas Riot! residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas on February 25, and the guys are turning the trip into a family affair. Lead singer Gary LeVox plans to bring his family out for the first week, but his 14-year-old daughter, Brittany, wants to hang out in Sin City for the entire run of the show.

Looking back on his conversation, Gary recalls telling his daughter, "Do you want daddy to get arrested? You have school. There's education. You might grow up and be a musician one day. Get you a job, baby."

Flatts bass player Jay DeMarcus plans to bring his family out for the last week of their residency. Mostly, Jay is glad to escape the cold temperatures in Nashville this time of year.

 "I'm really looking forward to just being into some warm weather so I can play some golf," Jay says. "That's what I'm looking forward to the most."

Rascal Flatts' Vegas Riot! residency will continue on select weekends through March 14. Tickets are available at AXS.com/RascalFlattsVegas.
