    Things are changing, ever-so-slightly, for Brad Paisley's 2012 first quarter tour.

    During the month of December, Mr. Paisley and his band had several days of tour rehearsals and it was during the stage set-up and rehearsals that Paisley realized the tour begged to have a new name – "Virtual Reality World Tour 2012" presented by Chevy. There ya have it, folks.

    "When you see plans and sketches on paper it's one thing but to actually see it in real life is something else, and that's what happened to me when we were in tour rehearsals. When I saw the visuals and how exciting and sometimes mind-blowing they were I just felt the tour name needed to reflect what the fans were going to see," says Paisley. "For two hours each night of the tour they can be taken away from reality - literally."

    The tour kicks-off next week with special guests The Band Perry and Scotty McCreery.
