Everyone Wants Brad Paisley's Stone Freebies + Why Blake & Miranda Won't Tour Together

Since Brad Paisley found out he’s opening for the Stones in Nashville June 17, his dad’s getting a lot of calls from strangers asking for tickets. Carrie Underwood also wants some and Brad says she stands a chance if she’ll duet with him at the show. Brad adds anyone not in his immediate family or band probably won’t be getting on his guest list for that show.

Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert have no plans in the near future to do a co-headline tour because Miranda says it would take too much compromise as they each have their own way of doing everything.

A fan tweeted to Jake Owen that he was his favorite artist writing, “but WHY are your tickets $150 for a show, I can't afford that!” Jake replied, “I wouldn't pay $150 to see me either. Tell me when you wanna come and I'll hook u up.”

Kenny Chesney’s the top-grossing tour right now of all genres with ticket sales over $19 million. The only other country star in the Top 10; Brad Paisley at #5.

Finally – speaking of Brad, his opener, newcomer Mickey Guyton has her debut EP out today.
