Brad Paisley is known for pranking his opening acts. He’s also known for treating his opening acts to nights out. He’s rented out entire movie theaters and has taken them go-karting. Why does he give his opening acts the royal treatment?
“This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to tour and only get these acts out one time, and I like to try to make it really hard for another headliner to give ‘em a better time, you know?” Brad still remembers the artists who treated him well on the road, including Brooks & Dunn, who would rented out a club near the venue they were playing so they could just chill out and play music with the opening acts, including Brad and Rascal Flatts at the time.
Who knows what’s in store for Parmalee and The Swon Brothers on the ‘Country Nation Tour’, but we’re sure there will be stories. Brad and the crew hit The Pensacola Bay Center on Friday (January 23) for a Cat Country Big Show!!
