Friday To-Do: Brad Paisley and Darius Rucker

Posted By on Fri, Nov 19, 2010 at 5:46 AM


7:30 p.m., Verizon Arena. $25-$59.75.

Brad Paisley had a good week last week. He co-hosted the CMA Awards, where he debuted a new, sure-to-be-anthem, "This Is Country" ("It ain't hip to sing about tractors, trucks, little towns, and mama, yeah that might be true / But this is country music and we do"). And after being nominated five times prior, Paisley finally took home the ceremony's coveted entertainer of the year award. In fact, it's been a pretty good recent career for Paisley. In less than five months, he's played for more than 750,000 fans on his H20 tour. In a little more than 10 years, he's sold 10 million and landed 25 singles on the Billboard country charts, including 10 straight number ones.

In 2008, former Hootie and the Blowfish front man Darius Rucker became the first African-American singer to top the country charts since Charley Pride in 1983. He's done it three more times since, most recently with "Come Back Song," the first single off his recently released sophomore album.

Poyen, Arkansas native Justin Moore has plenty to draw from in his anthems about country livin': his grandma's name was Faynette, he grew up on 100 acres, he was on a deer stand before he was one. He's sure to get a rousing welcome from the hometown crowd in the opening slot. Double date and save some dough: four pack tickets are available for $79.00 and $199.00.
