More Info

Brad Paisley: Brad Paisley is country music's reigning lyricist, guitarist, and vocalist. With hits like "Ticks", "Alcohol", and "Online", Paisley has proven time over time that he knows how to write a catchy song with an amusing hook. Brad Paisley tour dates are currently scheduled nationally with the country crooner as the headlining act on the "H20 Tour 2011".

Paisley hails from West Virginia, he taught himself to play the guitar at eight, and by 12 years-old, he had already written and performed his first single on the radio. Unlike other country stars, Paisley's talents were uncovered at a relatively early age and he perfected his songwriting craft through the paid support of ASCAP. He moved to Nashville and attended Belmont University on a fully-funded ASCAP scholarship and he interned with Atlantic Records. Paisley graduated from Belmont with a degree in Music Business and he immediately signed a songwriting contract with EMI Music Publishing. He immediately had a hit on his hands when he penned David Kersh's single "Another You", in 1996 when the single reached the top five of the country singles charts.

After early success with his songwriting career, Paisley was signed to Arista Nashville for a recording contract and he debuted his first single "Who Needs Pictures", and album of the same name in 1999. The album featured the #1 country single "He Didn't Have to Be", and it was eventually certified platinum by the RIAA, not bad for a debut album. Paisley also made his premiere at the Grand Ole Opry in 1999, and at the age of 28 he was the youngest member ever to join Country Music's biggest stage.

In 2000, he was named the Best New Male Vocalist by the Academy of Country Music and was nominated for Best New Artist at the Grammy Awards. He released his follow-up in 2001 and won a CMA award for Music Video of the Year for the single "I'm Gonna Miss Her (The Fishin' Song)". The video featured a cameo from his future wife, Kimberly Williams, who would go on to be the inspiration for several of his other hits including "Then". In support of the album, Brad Paisley tour dates were scheduled across the country and he served as the opening act for Lonestar.

Paisley had his biggest commercial success with the album, "Mud on the Tires", which featured the platinum duet with Alison Krauss, "Whiskey Lullaby"; The song was also named Song of the Year by the Country Music Association. The album went on to be certified double platinum and remains Paisley's biggest selling album. He released his fifth album, "5th Gear", in 2007. Ever since 2007, Paisley has been awarded the Male Vocalist of the Year title at the Academy of Country Music, and was again crowned in 2011.

Paisley went on to release several more albums and headline more tours in the latter part of the 2000s. He won his first Grammy award in 2008 for "Best Country Instrumental" for the single "Throttleneck". Brad Paisley tour dates were announced on a national headlining tour entitled "The Paisley Party". For 2011, Paisley has a new album "This is Country Music" set for release in May, 2011.

All in all, Paisley has charted 25 singles on the Billboard country charts, 16 of them have hit #1 and he holds the record for the most consecutive #1 singles with ten #1s in a row. He has headlined several tours and is gearing up for his latest national tour, "H20 II: Wetter and Wilder World Tour". This 2011, the Brad Paisley concert schedule includes stops at the America's largest venues and will be supported by country stars: Darius Rucker, Blake Shelton, Jerrod Niemann, and Sunny Sweeney. Don't miss out on the ACM's Top Male Vocalist four years running when he comes into town. Use Eventful as your source for Brad Paisley concert dates and venue information.

  • A federal judge in New York has set a Tuesday deadline for prosecutors to publicly file documents related to last year’s FBI raid of the home, office and hotel room of President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen. >> Read more trending news In an order filed Monday in the Southern District of New York, U.S. District Judge William H. Pauley gave prosecutors until Tuesday to file redacted copies of the documents after media outlets including The Associated Press, CNN and The New York Times requested the data be released. >> FBI raids office of Donald Trump’s longtime attorney Michael Cohen The information redacted from the warrant and related documents includes Cohen’s phone numbers, apartment number and safety deposit box number, Pauley said. Monday’s order came about a month after Pauley directed authorities to submit relevant documents to the court, citing prior court rulings that found search warrants and related documents can’t be “sealed indefinitely.” >> FBI sought records related to Trump 'Access Hollywood' tape in Cohen raid: reports “The public interest in the underlying subject matter of the materials — which implicates the integrity of the 2016 presidential election — is substantial,” Pauley wrote in a 30-page ruling filed Feb. 7. >> Judge approves Michael Cohen's request to delay prison term until May Authorities seized records and electronics in April 2018 during raids of Cohen’s home, office and hotel room. He was subsequently charged with multiple crimes, including several counts of tax evasion and making false statements to Congress, as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia meddling in the 2016 election.  Cohen pleaded guilty to charges last year and was sentenced to serve three years in prison. He’s scheduled to surrender to authorities May 6 to begin his sentence.
  • With early voting done and Election Day tomorrow, about 12.5% of registered Duval County voters have cast a ballot. That’s less than the Duval Supervisor of Elections Office had been hoping to see- given that Mayor, Sheriff, City Council, and other races are on the ballot- but it’s not necessarily surprising, according to WOKV’s Political Analyst. “Lacking the enthusiasm of one of the major parties not having a candidate on the top of the ticket hurts them [local Democrats], hurts turnout overall,” says University of North Florida Associate Professor of Political Science Dr. Michael Binder. FULL COVERAGE: WOKV’s Duval County Voter Guide The Jacksonville Mayor’s race has three Republican candidates- including the incumbent Mayor- one NPA, and two write-ins, but no Democrats. Binder says Democrats traditionally outperform Republicans in early voting turnout in Duval County, but the Supervisor of Elections Office confirms the GOP has a nearly 3% edge among early voting and absentee ballots that have been verified so far. Binder says that gap shows it was a “blunder” to not run a local Democrat in the race. “For a major party not to run a candidate for Mayor in a county that voted multiple points in favor of the Democratic Gubernatorial candidate just three months ago is mind-boggling to me,” he says. In these elections, if a candidate is able to secure 50% + 1 of the votes, he or she is elected outright Tuesday. If no candidate in a race gets that majority, the top two vote-getters face a runoff in May. Binder says the impact of the apparently lower Democrat turnout could have an impact down-ballot, where there are a few two-candidate City Council races involving a Democrat and Republican facing each other.  It’s likely that several races will get to May, because of the number of candidates involved, including some District and At-Large Council races. Binder says the likely District races are heavily Democrat, which could bolster any Democratic candidate in an At-Large race- if the Mayor’s race is settled on Tuesday. If the Mayor’s race moves to May, Binder expects there would continue to be a good GOP turnout, but if there is no Mayor’s race, Binder says it’s unlikely that Republicans would show up strong in May, because they would likely only be voting for one or two At-Large races. WHAT TO KNOW: Fast facts, links for the Duval County elections For Tuesday’s races, the Supervisor of Elections Office had initially projected voter turnout to be in the 30% range, but now they’re hoping for 24-25%. Binder says it may not even reach that. Chief Elections Officer Robert Phillips tells WOKV they saw early voting numbers climbing last week and, as traditionally happens, the strongest showing was the final day yesterday. Phillips says, while they would have hoped to have higher turnout, he believes this will mean no significant delays at the polls on Election Day Tuesday. “All the equipment has been delivered, all the machines have been tested. We are just ready for 7AM tomorrow,” Phillips says. He expects precincts to be busiest around opening time at 7AM and in the couple of hours leading up to closing at 7PM. Unlike early voting, remember that you have to go to the precinct assigned to you based on where you live if you’re voting on Election Day. You can find that precinct location on your sample ballot or through the Supervisor of Elections website. On Election Day, make sure you bring a photo ID with you, in order to vote.

  • A Jacksonville truck driver is being held in connection to the abduction of two children from Texas. The Winslow, Arizona Police Department says, on Saturday, they were contacted by police in Belton, Texas about two children who had been reported missing on Friday.

  • New guidelines from the American Heart Association are recommending most older adults no longer take a low-dose aspirin every day to prevent a heart attack or stroke. >> Read more trending news Following years of suggesting adults could benefit from a daily 75- to 100-milligram dose of aspirin to help fight cardiovascular problems, the AHA along with the America College of Cardiology released the findings of a clinical trial that found aspirin did not prolong life in elderly adults who do not have the highest risks of heart disease. The findings suggest not only was aspirin not as effective as thought but that it could possibly lead to major bleeding in the elderly. 'Clinicians should be very selective in prescribing aspirin for people without known cardiovascular disease,' according to a statement from Dr. Roger Blumenthal, co-chair of the 2019 ACC/AHA Guideline on the Primary Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease, and professor of cardiology at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. 'It's much more important to optimize lifestyle habits and control blood pressure and cholesterol as opposed to recommending aspirin,' Blumenthal said. Blumenthal said that 'Aspirin should be limited to people at the highest risk of cardiovascular disease and a very low risk of bleeding.'  The guidelines also pointed out that those who have had a heart attack or stroke could still use aspirin to prevent another cardiovascular event. 'Ultimately, we must individualize treatment for each patient, based on their individual situation,' North Carolina cardiologist Dr. Kevin Campbell, told CNN. Campbell wasn't involved in the new guidelines.
