Country music superstars Rascal Flatts will be hitting the small screen in the next new episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, “Unshockable”, which is set to air on Thursday, March 4. (Spoilers after the jump!)
As CSI Files previously reported, one member of the band gets shocked by his guitar while performing in Las Vegas, and the CSI team has to figure out who is responsible. “It was awesome,” lead vocalist Gary LeVox told The Boot. “The title of it is ‘Unshockable,’ and we don’t want to give too much away, but it was a great opportunity and fun to touch up on the acting skills that we don’t have!”
Bassist Jay DeMarcus revealed that he plays the victim in the episode—but don’t expect to see him on a morgue slab. “No dead Flatts,” he promised. “We considered it but thought it would be too dark.” He added, “I don’t want to give too much of the story away, but obviously from the commercial you can tell there’s an attempt on my life, and it happens during one of our live shows, and the story continues from there.”
“We don’t know who’s done it,” DeMarcus continued, “but it could be one of these guys, it could be my manager.” Bandmate Joe Don Rooney added, “It’s a serious criminal investigation because he’s hurt very badly.” Despite the grim nature of the case, the band had a lot of fun filming the episode. “We had a blast doing that,” DeMarcus said.
