Brad Paisley Plays to Sold-Out Crowd of 51K at Gillette Stadium

This past Saturday evening, country singer (and husband of Father of the Bride actress Kelly Williams) Brad Paisley played his first stadium show as a headliner to a sold-out crowd of over 51,000 fans at Gillette Stadium in Boston, MA, which is also the home of the NFL's New England Patriots. The 7th Annual New England Country Festival also included performances by Easton Corbin, Sara Evans, Darius Rucker and Jason Aldean. But it was Paisley who capped off the night for a ton of happy, screaming fans.
After the show Paisley beamed, "Early on, my career dream was to get to what I call the level of a tour musician – to have a tour bus, the band and I all pile on and go play a show, get back on the bus and go to another city and play. And to think – now here we are playing Gillette Stadium – the same group of guys that use to pile on that one tour bus. It's beyond my dreams."
See, dreams do come true. Just ask the arena-filling Brad Paisley.
