Brad Paisley celebrates with 500,000 friends

Wednesday, August 20, 2008 – Brad Paisley will celebrate another milestone this coming weekend with a sold out show in St. Paul, Minn. on Friday night - selling his 500,000th ticket for 2008.

The combination of the final leg of "The Bonfires and Amplifiers Tour" and "The Paisley Party" have made 56 stops around the country and selling more than 502,000 tickets January to August. "The Paisley Party" includes tour mates Jewel, Chuck Wicks and Julianne Hough.

"This number means more to me this year than ever knowing how strapped people are economically these days," said Paisley. "The fact that fans are willing to both buy tickets and the gasoline necessary to come to a show is the ultimate compliment and I am so thankful."

"The Paisley Party" has added a second leg for January through March, 2009 with details being released soon.

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. ...
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.
