Brad Paisley plots ‘Beat This Winter’ tour

, Staff

After a successful summer outing, Brad Paisley has revealed plans to return to the road in early 2014 in support of his latest album, Wheelhouse. The cleverly titled “Beat This Winter” tour will make two stops in New England, with shows scheduled for Connecticut and New Hampshire. He’ll be joined by special gusts Chris Young and Danielle Bradbery.

Paisley will first visit Uncasville, Connecticut for a performance at the Mohegan Sun Arena on Friday, February 14. Tickets for the Valentine’s Day show will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster for $65 and $85. The following night, Paisley will travel north to New Hampshire for a show at the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $37.75 to $97.75, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.

Wheelhouse, Paisley’s ninth studio effort and follow-up to 2011’s This Is Country Music, debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 after its release in April. Recorded in Tennessee at his home studio, the West Virginia-native solely produced the album for the first time and also wrote or co-wrote each of its sings. Wheelhouse features singles “Southern Comfort Zone”, “Beat This Summer” and “I Can’t Change the World” (see him perform the song on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” below). Paisley also collaborated with several guests artists on the album, including Dierks Bentley, Roger Miller, Hunter Hayes, Mat Kearney, Charlie Daniels, Eric Idle of Monty Python and LL Cool J (on the controversial track “Accidental Racist”).
