Brad Paisley will bring a little country spirit to the Calgary Saddledome tonight. His concert, part of the H2O World Tour, starts at 7:30 pm with opening acts by Darius Rucker and Justin Moore.

Brad is one of my favorite country singers.. His songs are light, funny, and down to earth. Time and time again, listening to his songs reminds me to find joy in the simple things in life. My all time favorite song is “Mud on the Tires”, but I’m also a fan of some of his more humorous songs, like “Ticks” and “I’m Still A Guy”.

There’s no doubt that tonight’s performance will include songs from Brad’s latest album, American Saturday Night. Here are some fun facts about the album.

American Saturday Night is Brad’s eighth album.

The album’s title is Brad’s nod to Saturday night – a night when people can let loose and forget about the rest of the week.

Brad co-wrote every song on the album.

“Anything like me”, a light and amusing song about fatherhood, features a vocal cameo from Brad’s two-year old son, William Huckleberry Paisley.

“Then”, was Brad’s fastest rising single and marked his 10th consecutive non-seasonal chart topper, ranking him up amongst chart legend’s like Alabama and George Strait.

Brad is most proud of the album’s “Welcome to the Future” because it talks about how a world of change and fear can lead to progress.
