Brad Paisley Taking Chris Young and Lee Brice on Tour?
If the just-announced lineup for the 2013 Baierl Subaru Country Megaticket event is any indicator of Brad Paisley's pending tour plans, it seems as though the 'Southern Comfort Zone' singer has enlisted Chris Young and Lee Brice as touring buddies for his upcoming headlining run.
The eight-day Megaticket event -- spanning from May 18 through Sept. 28 -- features the largest tours of 2013 from the biggest names in country music. Each evening features a comprehensive summer tour roster, except the Paisley date. The superstar has yet to announce his summer tour plans or possible opening acts.
Maybe Paisley, Young and Brice were corralled together as lone artists for the June 1 date, or more likely, the promoters for Megaticket jumped the gun with their announcement before Paisley could release his own.
In any case, we should expect to hear a tour announcement from Paisley soon. The singer has been hard at work preparing his 2013 new album 'Wheelhouse,' which is slated for an April 9 release.
Tickets for the 2013 Baierl Subaru Country Megaticket event at the First Niagara Pavilion in Pittsburgh, Penn. go on sale beginning Jan. 25 10AM ET at the event's website.
