As far as I'm concerned, Brad Paisley is part of summer just like pools, watermelon and frozen custard. The man is a touring machine each and every summer. Even if his show doesn't change that much from year to year, it barely needs to – the man is a born entertainer. Here's the proof.

Brad Paisley is either an extremely easy shoot or an extremely hard shoot, it just depends on how you look at it. For one, he always has a thrust that splits the shooting area – you can either go along the right or left side of the stage, but you're pretty much stuck there. Paisley moves around quite a bit, so you have to be OK with just playing zone defense or running around a lot to try and catch him when he goes to the left or right extremes of the stage.
On the bright side, there are spotlights tracking Paisley's every move, so he's pretty much lit up like a candle for the entire show.
