Brad Paisley Announces 2016 Country Nation College Tour
This fall, Brad Paisley will visit college campuses again for his second Country Nation College Tour. Following the success of last year's college tour, where over 120,000 fans enjoyed a free concert, the "Without a Fight" singer has scheduled several new school visits for 2016.
Paisley's Country Nation College Tour will kick off with a free show Sept. 4 in Orlando, Fla., before the Camping World Kickoff Game featuring Ole Miss vs. Florida State.
The singer will then visit two more universities in September, including his former state of West Virginia for a performance at West Virginia University on Sept. 9. and Ohio State University on Sept. 15. The tour is served by Frontier Communications.
“Frontier is excited to be partnering with Brad Paisley and to announce the first stops on the tour,” says Cecilia McKenney, EVP and Chief Customer Officer of Frontier in a press release. “Music and college sports are a winning combination, and we’re thrilled to help bring this experience to fans across the country. Sponsoring the Country Nation College Tour is the perfect opportunity for us to show appreciation to our customers.”
Additional cities will be announced at a later date.
Paisley concerts prove to be eventful. Last week, the singer helped reveal the gender of a couple's baby. After introducing the couple to the crowd, he held the sealed envelope in his hands. “This is the gender of your baby and you want me to reveal it right here?” he questioned as the couple nodded in unison.
Paisley then asked if they had any other kids while opening the envelope. They said they have two daughters.
"Place your bets!” he told the audience. “Wow, that is terrible writing. I’m not kidding. But oh, wow — it’s a boy!"
