Paisley notches ninth number one

Monday, January 12, 2009 – Brad Paisley notched his ninth consecutive number one single with Start a Band, the song he did with Keith Urban, which will be officially at the top when the charts are released later this week. Paisley assumes the top slot from Sugarland's Already Gone.

No other artist has achieved this in the 19-year history of Nielsen BDS-monitored airplay. This is Paisley's 13th number 1.

The reigning ACM and CMA Male Vocalist of the Year launches the final leg of the Paisley Party Tour this weekend with shows in Memphis, Little Rock, New Orleans and Pensacola. Fellow Opry member and friend Dierks Bentley will be his opener on the 25-day tour with a third act as well. Darius Rucker opens January dates and Crystal Shawanda February dates.

The Paisley Party Tour will have played to more than 60 cities when it plays the final show in Nashville on March 14. More than 200,000 tickets have been sold so far for the remaining 25 shows. "People are buying tickets and coming to shows, especially in this economy I know they've made a choice between my show and something else. I really want to give them their money's worth. I want to be as creative as I can. It's about going out there and doing my best and giving them the biggest, coolest show we can," said Paisley.

CD reviews for Brad Paisley

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.

Nevertheless, Paisley in concert and captured on ...
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.
