    Camobunga! It sounds like something Bart Simpson would utter, but it's really a rad country tour!

    After recently wrapping his highly successful 2011 tour Brad Paisley has announced his tour for next year – "The Camobunga! 2012 World Tour" presented by Chevy. The tour kicks-off Jan. 12 in Grand Rapids, MI with special guests The Band Perry and Scotty McCreery.

    Paisley's explanation on how he arrived at the tour name:

    "Camobunga :n; : //kam,bunga/ - The name of a live musical tour experience. A mind blowing blend of country, fiery '60s surf guitar acrobatics, futuristic special effects, retro heart and soul, and mind altering liquid beverages. The spirit of the deep woods meets the breakneck excitement of the California coast.

    Etymology of the word Camobunga :

    camouflage - N: /kamfläZH/ -fabric w/ splotches of green, brown, black & tan, meant to make the wearer of this pattern hard to distinguish from the background;(or possibly stand out as a redneck). And Brad Paisley's latest single.

    cowabunga (exclamation): Originated as a greeting by Chief Thunderthud on the '50s cowboy puppet tv program "The Howdy Doody Show", was later adopted by surfers in the '60s."

    Oh that Brad Paisley is too funny! Love him and his breakdown of a Camobunga! It makes us think of camo-pattern pants.
