Brad Extends 'The Paisley Party Tour' Into 2009

After securing his eighth consecutive #1 single, the fifth off his current album 5th Gear and the twelfth of his career, with "Waitin' On A Woman," Brad Paisley has announced the last leg of The Paisley Party tour which will extend into early 2009.  Paisley has invited fellow Opry member Dierks Bentley to be his very special guest on the 24 day tour starting in January with Darius Rucker opening January dates and Crystal Shawanda February dates. Current CMA and ACM Male Vocalist of the Year, Paisley received his first Grammy Award this year for Country Instrumental, "Throttleneck," and has just garnered his twelfth #1 single of his career with "Waitin' On A Woman." The Paisley Party has played to over 502,000 fans so far this year and last year's Bonfires and Amplifiers Tour was ranked #2 in total attendance for country tours by Pollstar.  Play - Paisley's highly anticipated guitar-driven mostly-instrumental album will be released November 4 and includes special guest vocals and collaborations with B.B. King, Keith Urban, Steve Wariner and Buck Owens.  His next single is "Start A Band" with fellow guitar-slinger Keith Urban. Photos from The Paisley Party Tour by Ben Enos
