Brad Paisley Invites High School Seniors to Tour Rehearsal
Brad Paisley is well aware that there is a "Last Time for Everything," and he recently treated high school seniors to a very special day. On Wednesday (May 17), the singer invited local high school seniors to his tour rehearsals at Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.
Seniors from Saratoga Springs High School and Averill Park High School were invited to watch Paisley's final tour rehearsal the day before his Weekend Warrior World Tour kicked off at the venue. He filmed a portion of his set on Facebook so fans could also join in on the fun.
"We start here tomorrow night but these guys get to see us make a lot of mistakes tonight because they're in high school and that's all you do," he says. "We're going to have a good time. We're going to play the show for them."

Later, Paisley shared some life advice with the high school seniors.
“This is the ‘Last Time for Everything’ for all of you – high school graduation is one of those moments where you look around and it’s like, ‘We’re going to be friends forever.' No ... some of them you'll see again at a reunion,” he added.
Saratoga Springs High School and Averill Park High School aren't the only high school seniors to be serenaded by Paisley. The singer is offering seniors across the country the chance for him to perform at their graduation. High school graduates can enter the Class of 2017 ‘Last Time for Everything’ Contest, in which one fan will win the grand prize of having Paisley perform for their graduating class. To enter, fans can submit posts on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #BPGrad17Contest with their answers to the question: What “Last Time” are you going to miss most about school? The contest ends on May 25.
Paisley has just released a new album, Love and War, which includes collaborations with Timbaland, John Fogerty and Mick Jagger, as well as Bill Anderson. The album is also available as a visual album.
