Country singer and musician Brad Paisley has been crushin' it out on the road this year on his Life Amplified World Tour (which continues through 2017). One show was particularly memorable. Paisley's Sept. 9 concert (as part of his adjoining Country Nation College Tour) at West Virginia University in Morgantown, West Virginia will be immortalized with an upcoming PBS special, slated to air Friday (Jan. 27) at 9/8c. Ahead of that broadcast, though, the singer is releasing the entire event, aptly titled "Brad Paisley – Landmarks Live In Concert: A Great Performances Special," on a CD and DVD combo pack next Friday (Dec. 23). Order now on Amazon.
Paisley took to WVU's outdoor stage and performed for more than 15,000 people. His setlist included a cover of John Denver's "Take Me Home, Country Roads" and such hit singles as “Crushin’ It,” “American Saturday Night,” “Water,” “Online,” “Perfect Storm,” “Letter to Me,” “This is Country Music,” “I’m Still a Guy” (with Chris Young), “She’s Everything,” “Ticks,” “Country Nation,” “Old Alabama,” “Then,” “Beat This Summer,” “I’m Gonna Miss Her,” “River Bank,” “Take Me Home,” “Country Roads,” “Southern Comfort Zone,” “Mud on the Tires” and “Alcohol.”
The special is produced by award-winning director Daniel E Catullo III, CEO of City Drive Films and former WVU student. “I am so pleased to be partnering with Brad on the WVU show,” Catullo III shares in a press statement. “Being an alumnus of WVU this show is very special for me. To be able to bring WVU to the world stage is something I am proud to do and I couldn’t think of a better artist to do it with than Brad, who has similar feelings of WVU, having grown up not too far from the campus. It has been a dream of mine to go back to WVU and put on a huge show, free for the students.”
