NASHVILLE, TN (CelebrityAccess) — As touring industry is finally waking up after its year-long slumber, country recording artist Brad Paisley announced plans to hit the road this summer for a tour of North America.
Paisley’s run kicks off on June 5th at Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam in Panama City Beach, Florida, and wraps on October 9th at FivePoint Amphitheatre in Irving, California.
The tour includes a July 4th performance at Nashville’s Independence Day celebration Let Freedom Sing! that will likely be the city’s first major event this year.
For the tour, Paisley will be supported by current ACM New Male Artist Jimmie Allen and Columbia Nashville rising star Kameron Marlowe.
Unlike some artists, Paisley has been a vocal advocate of the vaccine and partnered with Vanderbilt Health for a nationwide “Be a Fan. Take the Shot” PSA encouraging his fans to get innoculated.
“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,” Paisley said.
A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales for the tour will go to support The Store, a nonprofit free-referral based grocery store co-founded by Brad Paisley and 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.
Since then, The Store team pivoted towards delivering food to the elderly as well as curbside delivery pickups. 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.
