Brad Paisley to Open for the Rolling Stones in Nashville
Brad Paisley has been a headlining act for much of his career, but he's about to happily return to opening act status. The country music superstar has been tapped to serve as the opening act for the Rolling Stones when their 2015 Zip Code Tour hits Nashville.
The West Virginia native previously joined the Stones at a show in Philadelphia in 2013, for a performance of the legendary group's "Dead Flowers." That tour also included appearances by Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and Taylor Swift.
"They are a great country band," Paisley says of his fascination with the iconic group. "There's this fluid sort of thing, where Mick does what he does, Ronnie does what he does, and they both look so effortless. It's just fluid. It's just this thing. It is literally a waterfall, and it's like you're caught up in that."
The Rolling Stones' Nashville show, featuring Paisley, is set for June 17 at LP Field. The concert falls in the middle of Paisley's 2015 Crushin' It World Tour and only a couple of nights after Paisley's June 14 performance, also at LP Field, as part of the 2015 CMA Music Festival.
Paisley's latest single, "Crushin' It," is currently in the Top 20 and climbing. The musician created the song's video entirely on his own, drawing and animating a "Country Super Hero Team" that features Darius Rucker, Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Urban, Jason Aldean, Underwood, the Zac Brown Band, Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley, Florida Georgia Line, Little Big Town, Rascal Flatts, Eric Church, George Strait, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.
