Brad Paisley will kick off tour in June

'Feel That Fire' set for release next week

NASHVILLE -- Brad Paisley will begin his 41-city American Saturday Night tour, with special guests Dierks Bentley and Jimmy Wayne, June 5 in Charlotte, N.C.

Booked by Rob Beckham at WMA, Paisley has become one of country's biggest touring success stories. Last year Paisley grossed nearly $25 million and drew almost 600,000 fans, ranking 30th among all touring acts, according to Billboard Boxscore. He continues adding to those numbers with his Paisley Party tour, which runs through February.

Feb. 3 marks the release of "Feel That Fire" on Arista Nashville, the follow-up to 2008's mostly instrumental release "Play."
