Rascal Flatts have been crisscrossing the United States this year, bringing their Changed Tour to thousands of fans. But soon, Gary LeVox, Joe Don Rooney and Jay DeMarcus will be packing their bags for their first headlining performance in Australia in 2013.

The trio, along with the Band Perry, Chris Young, Billy Ray Cyrus, David Lee Murphy, Adam Brand, Catherine Britt and more, have been announced as the first performers for Australia's 2013 CMC Rocks the Hunter. The three-day festival is scheduled for March 15-17, 2013 in Hunter Valley, Australia's Hope Estate Winery. Rascal Flatts will close out the event on March 17.

Now in its sixth year, CMC Rocks the Hunter has a glittering history of headlining artists. In 2012, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill served as the festival's headliners, while Alan Jackson served as the headliner in 2011.

Meanwhile, Rascal Flatts have several tour dates still to go on their 2012 Changed Tour in the States. For a list of Rascal Flatts tour dates, click here.
