Beat this  summer tour
On Friday, Brad Paisley announced that his new single Beat This Summer from his upcoming album "Wheelhouse" will hit hit radio on Monday. While looking around to see if Brad had also released artwork for the new single that I could add to this post, I realized that Brad's upcoming tour (with Chris Young and Lee Brice) was also going to be called Beat This Summer.

Not sure if I just missed the announcement or if this was something that just a few radio stations and Citi Bank were privy to.

Brad already has a few tour dates posted on his website. You can check those out at

The Back to the Bowery tour marks the first time ALABAMA has announced an extensive run since 2002. To commemorate this special occasion, they have chosen to perform in smaller, more intimate rooms in an effort to create special up-close-and-personal memories for their fans.

"I'm so excited to celebrate 40 years since our first show at The Bowery," says ALABAMA frontman, Randy Owen. "We still love one another, have played music together all these years, and are blessed to still be around. Most importantly, we are ever grateful for the fans, many having been with us since we used to play for tips, so to be able to go back out and play for them will make this a very special year."
