Brad Paisley to Open for the Rolling Stones in Nashville
You know it’s a huge show when an artist as big as Brad Paisley is your opening act. The country star has been announced as a very special support act for the Rolling Stones when they perform at Nashville’s LP Field on June 17.
The Stones’ upcoming Zip Code tour will see Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood performing classic hits including “Gimme Shelter”, “Paint It Black”, “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”, “Tumbling Dice” and “It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll”, as well as special selections from their back catalog. The tour marks the first time the iconic group have played North American stadiums since 2005-2007’s A Bigger Bang tour. It kicks off in San Diego on May 24 and runs through July 15, when it wraps up in Quebec.
Paisley previously joined the Stones onstage in Philadelphia in 2013 to perform “Dead Flowers.” He is currently on the road on his Crushin’ It World Tour, which features Justin Moore and newcomer Mickey Guyton as his support acts. The tour takes its name from Paisley’s current single, “Crushin’ It,” from his chart-topping 2014 album Moonshine in the Trunk. He recently released a hilarious video for the song that features his own hand-drawn caricatures of fellow country stars.
Though he’s one of country music’s top instrumentalists, Paisley is no stranger to classic rock. In addition to jamming with the Stones, he also covered Eric Clapton‘s classic, “Layla,” during an appearance on the Bobby Bones Show in March.
