Band Perry Says Brad Makes Tour Feel Like Summer Camp

“He really and truly makes it feel like family,” Kimberly Perry says of the Virtual Reality World Tour.

Sure, singing for tens of thousands of people each night is fun, but it's still work, Kimberly Perry of The Band Perry says.

"There is a particular grind to the road," she tells reporters.

But Brad Paisley is smoothing out that grind better than most on his multi-artist Virtual Reality World Tour, she says.

So far, the headliner has taken everyone—bus drivers and crew members included—to the movies, bowling alleys, even to a go-kart track.

"You know, it's the best time," says Kimberly, who opens with Scotty McCreery, Jana Kramer, Love & Theft and Kristen Kelly.

"I think Brad is one of the best at just tour morale. . . . He really and truly makes it feel like a family," Kimberly says.

And that starts in the morning.

"It feels like summer camp," she says. "Like, we all wake up in the morning and we have breakfast together and everybody's in sweatpants and T-shirts."

Brad Paisley's Feel-Good Summer Camp Sleepover Party rolls into Saratoga, N.Y., on Friday (June 29).
