Brad Celebrates Two No. 1s
Brad Paisley celebrated the success of two of his recent No. 1 hits, "Welcome to the Future" and "American Saturday Night," at an industry party at Nucci's Italian Ice & Gelato in Franklin, Tenn., March 22.
Brad chose the unusual location because "Italian Ice" is mentioned in "American Saturday Night" and Brad wished to have a connection with one of the songs. It's also a favorite spot for Brad and wife Kimberly Williams-Paisley, who was on hand for the celebration. Before the party, Brad told reporters that the two songs have a common bond. "These songs are pieces of my life and it's interesting that both are observations about the world," Brad explained. "They are similar in the sense that they are larger than personal relationship songs." Brad also talked about his upcoming H2O World Tour presented by Chevy, which will kick off this summer. "We were talking abut the upcoming summer tour," Brad noted. "The idea was having 'Water' as the next single from the album and we wanted to have it peaking by summertime. And I think my agent said, 'Why don’t you call it the H2O Tour?'" A portion of the tour proceeds will benefit Hope Through Healing Hands, which aims to provide clean drinking water for countries around the world.
