WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.The Spirit of the Old Gold and Black, Wake Forest University's marching band, performed live on stage with Grammy Award winning artists Rascal Flatts tonight at the Greensboro Coliseum.
Approximately 50 students (about half the marching band) played the trio's popular song "Life is a Highway," a tune the Wake Forest band routinely performs at halftime of home football games.
"The Spirit of the Old Gold and Black is grateful to Rascal Flatts for such an incredible experience, which is something we will reminisce about for years to come," said Kevin Bowen, Director of Bands at Wake Forest. "Many of our students have dedicated almost their entire lives to the art of performance, but few of them could have imagined that one day they would be on stage with some of music's biggest stars. It was fun and it was an honor."
