Brad Paisley is teaming with Cracker Barrel for the first leg of his 2013 trek. The Beat This Summer tour, sponsored by the restaurant chain, kicks off May 9 in St. Louis, Mo., with openers Lee Brice and Chris Young. The highly anticipated journey takes its name from the singer-songwriter's latest single, which he co-wrote with Chris DuBois and Luke Laird.

"This song is about that feeling we've all had at some point in our lives – when you're young, you've fallen in love, maybe you're on the beach or working near the boardwalk," Brad says. "You're thinking there may never be a summer to compare."

In addition to bring a good time to fans across North America, the tour will also help those in need. One dollar from every ticket sold will be donated to Live Beyond, a non-profit organization that provides medical care, clean water and nutritional support to impoverished communities in Haiti.
