The boys of Rascal Flatts were actually on stage Sunday night at the 2011 California Stagecoach Festival, when news broke of the death of Osama Bin Laden.

Though many of the 55,000+ in attendance at the country music festival Stagecoach had received news of the death of Osama Bin Laden through word of mouth, text messages and emails and other notifications, the first public announcement of his death at this year's Stagecoach Festival, came in the form of a break in song by Rascal Flatts.

About 30 minutes into the actual concert, the trio stopped the music and announced to the full-capacity crowd that Osama Bin Laden was dead.

Watch as the audience goes crazy when the Flatts made the announcement and then thanked the military and led the chanting of "USA, USA."
