Brad Paisley Adds Ole Miss to College Tour
Brad Paisley is preparing to visit universities around the country next year with his Country Nation College Tour, and now students at the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) will get to join in on the fun.
The artist announced he will be adding the Oxford, Miss. school to his tour schedule, performing at the grand opening of the school’s Pavilion at Ole Miss, the new home of the school’s basketball programs, Jan. 24, 2016.
Ole Miss is the tenth college to be added to the tour, named for Paisley's recent single “Country Nation,” which has held free on-campus shows at Auburn University, Florida State University, and more throughout the fall. Several of the shows included Eric Paslay as the opener.
Paisley has been heavily involved with college football this season in conjunction with “Country Nation,” including being featured in a montage set to the song during the SEC on CBS broadcast and bringing in a host of college mascots to accompany him on stage during his performance of the song at the CMA Awards, which he co-hosted with Carrie Underwood. The mascots also joined him for the music video for the song, including one unique “Brad Paisley” mascot. The single has reached No. 17 on the Billboard Country Airplay charts.
