Brad Paisley to headline Countryfest at Gillette

, Staff

Brad Paisley will headline Gillette Stadium this summer as part of the 7th annual New England Country Music Festival. The festival is scheduled for Saturday, August 21. Joining the reigning CMA and ACM Male Vocalist of the Year, will be fellow country favorites Jason Aldea, Darius Rucker, Sara Evans and Easton Corbin. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $29.50 to $82.50, go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. though Ticketmaster.

Paisley will take over for 5-time headliner Kenny Chesney, who has decided to take a break from his extensive touring in 2010. Toby Keith headlined the inaugural New England Country Music Festival, which has sold out Gillette Stadium in each of its six years.

Paisley continues to tour in support of his seventh studio album, American Saturday Night, which was released last summer. The highly acclaimed album debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 and has been powered by the success of hit singles “Welcome to the Future”, “Then”, and “American Saturday Night.”
