When we visited with American Idol contestant Jacee Badeaux on GMA last week, his mom Lana said the experience was incredible but she and Jacee wished that her whole family could have been more involved in some of the things Jacee had done. Jacee is one of four children of Lana and Walter Badeaux and he is a big Rascall Flatts fan. He performed the Rascall Flatts hit "God Bless the Broken Road" on the Ellen Show last week. So GMA's Tracy Wirtz contacted her friends at 97.3 The Dawg and enlisted their help. Rascall Flatts will be playing a show at the New Orleans Arena on Sunday night. (There are a couple of ironies involved here. First, Jacee auditioned for Idol at the New Orleans Arena. Second, Rascall Flatts was originally slated to perform in New Orleans in early February but was forced to rescheduled due to the ice storm that hit the state.) With the help of The Dawg's Program Director Bruce Mickells and Music Director Stephanie Crist, they were able to secure VIP tickets for all of Jacee's family as well as passes for Jacee to meet the members of Rascall Flatts before the show.
