They may not have listened to country music before Rascal Flatts chose their school as the site of a $40,000 deluxe playground, but now the children and staff at Princeton Alternative Elementary are their biggest fans.

On Wednesday, the Grammy Award-winning group spent the day at the West End school helping more than 150 volunteers from Home Depot and the community build a KaBoom! playground.

The country hitmakers - Jay DeMarcus, Gary LeVox and Joe Don Rooney - got their hands dirty by shoveling mulch, helping paint a mural and doing other tasks necessary to build the playground in one day. [More]
