Brad Paisley announced that he will be the first country artist to play Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series this year at the new location of Central Park in New York City. The performance will help boost interest in the album launch for his upcoming June 30 release, American Saturday Night.
This week Paisley is in studio putting the finishing touches on this upcoming album but will spend a very American Saturday Night at a White House Correspondents’ Dinner, as the guest of CBS News’ Chief White House Correspondent Bob Schieffer. Paisley and Schieffer met in the Fall of 2008 at a special Grand Ole Opry show at the Ryman Auditorium during Belmont University’s Debate ’08. Several Hollywood celebrities and Washington elite, including President Barack Obama, are scheduled to attend the dinner.
Paisley’s current single, “Then,” is number six on the singles charts after only seven weeks at radio. This is the fastest rising single of Paisley’s illustrious career – so far.
