Paisley announces '20 tour

Tuesday, February 18, 2020 – Brad Paisley announced his 2020 World Tour, which kicks off May 15 in Concord, Cal. Special guests on the U. S. tour dates will be Jordan Davis and Gabby Barrett.

Additional 2020 tour dates will be added soon.

A portion of all ticket sales will go to The Store - a nonprofit free-referral based grocery store that Paisley and his wife, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, in partnership with Belmont University, are spearheading in Nashville. It will be a year-round free grocery store allowing people to shop with dignity for their basic needs.

Davis, a native of Shreveport, La., graduated from LSU and briefly pursued the path of his degree working as an environmental consultant, but moved to Nashville in 2012. Jordan's debut album, "Home State," yielded his current hit single "Slow Dance In A Parking Lot" and the hits "Singles You Up" and "Take It From Me." He just released a new collaboration with Julia Michaels, "Cool Anymore." They wrote it with Nicolle Galyon, Ross Copperman and Emily Weisband.
Barrett, a top three finalist on American Idol, gained radio play with "I Hope." She has recorded her debut album with producer Ross Copperman. The Pennsylvania native began singing in her local gospel choir at nine years old.

CD reviews

Wheelhouse CD review - Wheelhouse
Brad Paisley isn't content to keep doing the same old. In fact, this is probably the least traditional country outing in his career. Yet, a few things remain intact - great guitar playing and singing and a sense of humor without being too kitschy. In fact, Paisley manages to combine the ultra serious with his typical sense of humor. The seriousness is never more apparent from Paisley than on the controversial Accidental Racist with LL Cool J, who helped write and perform it. »»»
Hits Alive CD review - Hits Alive
Brad Paisley's new live hits CD is a bit of a tease. That's because it only goes half way in replicating the true live Paisley experience. Watching the accompanying concert videos at a Paisley show, whether the venue screen is showing Andy Griffith during Waitin' on a Woman or the montage of recently-deceased celebrities that accompanies When I Get Where I'm Going, reveal how Paisley simply must be seen to be fully enjoyed. Nevertheless, Paisley in concert and captured on »»»
American Saturday Night CD review - American Saturday Night
Brad Paisley has grown up on his eighth album. Yes, the West Virginian maintains a sense of humor, but apparently aging has left its mark on a maturing singer who has never forsaken his country roots. That is ever so apparent in songs like Anything Like Me and Oh Yeah, You're Gone. The former finds Paisley looking at the passage of time through his son's life in a tender, but not sappy look. On the latter, he's a five-year-old boy who doesn't get what he wants, which his grandfather notices. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: The Lil Smokies provide the perfect antidote – On a night when the world to be falling further apart thanks to coronavirus (this would be the night the NBA postponed the season), there stood The Lil Smokies to at least in some small measure save the day.

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music – John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia. But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
