(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) —
Reba McEntire and Brad Paisley will team up to headline a tour this year along with Terri Clark as a special guest. The Two Hats and a Redhead Tour will kick off April 15 in Virginia Beach, VA at the Verizon Amphitheatre. Before its conclusion in mid-June, the tour will cover more than two dozen cities. Due to a scheduling conflict, Clark will not be on the first three dates April 15-17; Joe Nichols will join McEntire and Paisley.
"The two things I love most about touring are getting to perform my music live for the fans, and sharing the stage with friends," McEntire said. "Brad and Terri are each great performers and great friends."
"It is an honor to share the stage with such an icon. I'm a huge Reba McEntire fan and so many of my musical influences have toured with Reba throughout the years," said Paisley. "Now to have the same opportunity is very exciting for me. On top of that, being surrounded by Reba and Terri Clark will make me the envy of many, many, many, many men."
"Having been an avid Reba McEntire fan club member as a teenager, to put it into Canadian terms, I would compare this to a rookie hockey player getting to play a season on the same team with Wayne Gretzky," Clark said. "This is a wonderful opportunity, and if it is half as much fun as the last time I toured with Reba in 1998, I can only imagine what kind of summer this will be."
"This is one of the strongest tour packages going out this year," said Brian O'Connell, vice-president with Clear Channel, the promoters of the concert event. "Reba, Brad and Terri bring a level of professionalism to a live performance that fans truly appreciate. But even better-they know how to have fun." –Jane Cohen and Bob Grossweiner
