Brad Paisley announced tour plans for his 2021 tour and it includes a stop at the Big E in West Springfield on Friday, September 24th with special guest Jordan Davis.

Like all venues across the country the Big E had to shut down due to the pandemic last year.  Shows are starting to be booked as the COVID-19 cases steadily decline in the states allowing venues to once again book acts as the country slowly tries to return to normal.

Paisley is one of the biggest country stars in the country and will be rocking the Big E Arena this fall.  Paisley has recently branched out and has been using his celebrity to make some extra cash with a side-hustle along with former Colts QB Peyton Manning and their TV campaign for Nationwide Insurance.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
