– Brad Paisley announced his Tour 2021, launching on June 5 in Panama City Beach at Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam, the first large-scale festival in the world to take place in 2021.
His second stop will be Nashville's 4th of July celebration, Let Freedom Sing!, which is expected to be Music City's first major event of the year.
Special guests on the tour dates will be current ACM New Male Artist Jimmie Allen and Columbia Nashville newcomer Kameron Marlowe.
Sidelined like all musicians due to COVID-19, Paisley has partnered with Vanderbilt Health in a national public service announcement to encourage fans to get the COVID-19 vaccine - "Be a Fan. Take the Shot."
"It's been a real difficult year, a nightmare for anyone who makes their living with a group of people. I feel very passionate about the chance we have for normalcy right now with the vaccine. There's light at the end of the tunnel. I have a band and crew just waiting to get back out on the road. The more of us that Take the Shot the safer it will be for all of us to gather."
Fans can purchase tickets for all dates now at www.bradpaisley.com. Live Nation is the official promoter of the tour.
A portion of all ticket sales will go to The Store, a nonprofit free-referral based grocery store co-founded by Paisley and his wife, Kimberly Williams-Paisley. The Store opened for in-store clients on March 12, 2020, following the March 3 tornado that devastated parts of Nashville. The Store was open for only four days when the COVID-19 pandemic became widespread, and it was obvious in-store shopping was not going to be feasible. A new plan was put in place with home delivery for the elderly and curbside pick-up. The weekly deliveries are currently capped at 450 households and curbside pickup is at 200 per week. This is six times the initial projection and equals to over 1.3 million meals distributed.
