Brad Paisley‘s new song, “City Of Music,” rang true Sunday night as the streets of downtown Nashville were packed with a massive crowd of 350,000, all celebrating the return of Music City’s 4th of July celebration. Paisley headlined the annual event, which was cancelled last year due to COVID-19, and brought in the holiday weekend in spectacular fashion.
He opened the show with his new single, which acts as his love letter to Nashville and a tribute to its dream seekers, and filled his 90-minute set with No. 1’s, fan favorites, and old standards. Special guests during the evening included blues rock guitar master Joe Bonamassa and Kelsea Ballerini who joined Paisley to perform her hit song, “Hole In The Bottle.” CNN’s Fourth In America aired four of Paisley’s songs live before and during its broadcast of the country’s largest fireworks display.
On tap for Paisley during his busy summer include an appearance on the Grand Ole Opry tonight (July 6) along with a slate of shows this weekend and beyond as he continues his 2021 tour running coast-to-coast through October 9.
Additionally, on Aug. 13, Brad Paisley’s Shark Country will air on Discovery Channel during the network’s famed Shark Week. For the special, Paisley and comedian JB Smoove travel to the Bahamas where Dr. Austin Gallagher helps them put Paisley’s musical talents to the test in shark-infested waters as they see how sound can attract or repel sharks.
