Exclusive: 'CSI' books Rascal Flatts

CSI is about to go a little bit country: The Ausiello Files has just learned (exclusively, to boot) that Rascal Flatts has signed on to appear in an episode to air sometime next year.

In “Unshockable,” which exec producer Carol Mendelsohn points out is “a riff off [the group’s] hit album, tour and song… [they’ll] be playing themselves. One of the guys – and tear out my fingernails, but I won’t say who – will become the victim of a crime. The other two ‘Rascals’ will be suspects… thus, jeopardizing the future of the band.”

Neat. But shouldn’t the show let them sing a little, too?

“Of course, there will be lots of music,” Mendelsohn promises, “and perhaps, even a new original song.”

Well, OK then! So what do you think, folks? Will Rascal Flatts soar or fall… well, flat? Speak your piece below, with or without a twang. Your call.
