2013 Cattle Baron's Ball co-chairmen Mary Gill and Brooke Shelby have been working since July to secure the band — which has won nearly every country music award known to man — as entertainment for the 40th anniversary ball, and last night's announcement party made it official. Undoubtedly, Rascal Flatts will help "Spur On! The Fight Against Cancer" — although Blake Shelton's rain-soaked croonings at last year's fete will be one tough act to follow.
Look for an announcement party recap in our next "People Watching" column. In the meantime, follow us on Twitter for of-the-moment event coverage: @watchwithus.
