Brad Paisley to Perform at WVU as Part of College Tour

By 2010, Paisley had won more than 60 awards, including three Grammys.

Brad Paisley will perform a free concert at West Virginia University next month.

WVU says in a news release that the country music star will perform Sept. 9 in a parking lot outside the WVU Law School. West Virginia’s football team plays Youngstown State on Sept. 10 in Morgantown.

The performance is part of Paisley’s Country Nation College Tour that also includes scheduled stops in Orlando, Florida, on Sept. 4 and Columbus, Ohio, on Sept. 15.

Paisley is a native of Glen Dale. Earlier this month he made an initial donation of $250,000 for a home-building project for West Virginia residents whose residences were destroyed in late June flooding.

In addition, his crowdfunding website campaign for flood relief has nearly $700,000 in donations toward a goal of $1 million.
