Country star Paisley to play Charleston Civic Center
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Country music superstar and native West Virginian Brad Paisley will return to the Charleston Civic Center March 1.
The show is part of the Marshall County native's "Beat this Winter" tour, a kind of continuation of his "Beat this Summer" tour. It features performances by Chris Young and Danielle Bradbery.
This is Paisley's first visit to Charleston in half a dozen years, and the time since then has been eventful for the veteran performer. Since his last show at the Civic Center, the 41-year-old has released four well-regarded albums, suffered equipment losses from the ravages of a flood in Nashville and become the center of controversy over the song "Accidental Racist."
Paisley's latest record is "Wheelhouse," released in April of this year.
Young, 2011's American County Awards Breakthrough Artist of the Year, has scored a number of country hits. His latest, "Aw Naw," a single from his record "A.M.," made it to No. 4 on the country charts.
Bradbery, the 2013 winner of NBC's singing competition "The Voice," will release her self-titled debut record Nov. 25. The first single from that record, "The Heart of Dixie," was released in July and went to No. 23 on the country charts.
