Rascal Flatts paid a special visit to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt recently.

The group, which has been longtime supporters of the hospital, visited with families, signed autographs and posed for photos. In addition, the band and its label, Big Machine Records, held a special charity auction last week that netted Children’s Hospital more than $12,000.

The auction included custom-made, hand-painted guitars that Rascal Flatts played on-stage during its Brickyard 400 performance at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
