Brad Paisley is back on campus with another Country Nation College Tour. He will bring his free concerts to a new group of IMG College partners this fall with support from presenting sponsor Frontier Communications.
The tour will debut with a free show on Sunday, Sept. 4, in downtown Orlando, Florida, ahead of the Camping World Kickoff Game featuring Ole Miss vs. Florida State. Paisley will then travel to two IMG College partner universities during the month of September.
Paisley returns to his home state for an on-campus show at West Virginia University on Friday, Sept 9, in advance of the Mountaineers’ match-up with Youngstown State the following day. He will also perform at The Ohio State University on Thursday, Sept. 15.
Additional stops on the tour will be announced later this month. More than 120,000 fans attended Paisley’s free Country Nation College Tour concerts in 2015.
“Frontier is excited to be partnering with Brad Paisley and to announce the first stops on the tour,” said Cecilia McKenney, EVP and Chief Customer Officer of Frontier Communications. “Music and college sports are a winning combination, and we’re thrilled to help bring this experience to fans across the country. Sponsoring the Country Nation College Tour is the perfect opportunity for us to show appreciation to our customers.”
Paisley’s “Country Nation” single debuted in 2015, and was written by Paisley and his longtime collaborators Chris DuBois and Kelley Lovelace.
IMG, which serves more than 200 universities nationwide, is a division of WME | IMG, which also represents Paisley and brokered the college tour deal.
