Paisley sells out Live From the Drive-In Shows

Monday, July 13, 2020 – 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. Live Nation Concerts #allinthistogether #livefromthedrivein."

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.

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.

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.

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. »»»
