– Brad Paisley performed with his full tour set up for his first in-person live music concert since mid March in the first ever Live Nation U.S. drive-in concert series, Live From the Drive In with sold-out all three stops, St. Louis, Nashville and Indianapolis.
Darius Rucker headlined his show on the final night of the weekend in Nashville, complete with a "Only Wanna Be With You" sing-a-long with the crowd. Jon Pardi headlined in Nashville on Friday and Indianapolis on Saturday.
The 90-minute concert by Paisley was filled with career hits such as "Mud on the Tires," "American Saturday Night," "Then," I'm Still A Guy," "Ticks," and his current single, "No I In Beer."
"It's not lost on us how big a blessing it is to play music in these times," Paisley said. "Thank you so much for giving us this memory tonight. I hope we've given you a memory too. You were amazing."
On Paisley's socials, he posted, "This was our weekend. The back row of cars was over a quarter mile away, but somehow I've never felt closer to an audience. Everyone went the extra mile to make this work, and somehow, safely, we played live music again. Thank you St Louis, Nashville, and Indy. These are the moments we will never forget.

The Nashville performance from Nissan Stadium parking lot was live streamed on Paisley's Facebook page and has garnered more than 640,000 views. While the Facebook live was free for fans to watch, they had the option to donate to The Store, a nonprofit free-referral based Nashville grocery store co-founded by Brad and Kimberly Williams-Paisley. During the livestream, fans donated over $25,000.
