Sure, Brad Paisley can be a little cheesy on tour with his Big Head Brad and never-ending bag of pranks, but his upcoming Country Nation Tour, sponsored by Kraft Cheese and Dairy brands, promises to be as Gouda as it gets. He’ll probably milk it for all it’s worth. He’s got a lot to provolone this time around.

The more than 40-city trek kicks off May 16 in Camden, N.J., and continues through the summer. Joining Brad on what promises to be worth the cheddar are pals Randy Houser, Charlie Worsham, Leah Turner and Dee Jay Silver.

And speaking of cheesy, check out the videos that Brad and Kraft created at And while you Edam up the hilarity, enter the national Swiss-stakes, uh, sweepstakes for a chance to win a lifetime supply of—what else?—cheese, and a VIP Brad Paisley concert experience. Check out some pretty creamy recipes, too.

Brad Paisley and cheese, it’s like nature’s am-feta-mine.

Alright, you get the Parmesan, er, point.
