Brad Paisley reprised his 2004 hit “Whiskey Lullaby” at a recent concert in Raleigh, N.C., with his opening act, Mickey Guyton, flawlessly stepping in for Alison Krauss, who sang the tune with Paisley on his 2003 Mud on the Tires album.
“Whiskey Lullaby,” which was written by Bill Anderson and Jon Randall and released as a single from Mud on the Tires, was Paisley’s first platinum-selling hit.
“So ready to watch @MickeyGuyton sing,” Paisley tweeted before opening night, along with a picture of the two of them.”She is so talented. #crushinit”
Guyton is one of Paisley’s opening acts on his 2015 Crushin’ It World Tour, which will hopefully be an easier gig for Guyton than her first radio tour was earlier this year.
“I was scared out of my mind about the radio tour,” Guyton tells Billboard. “Everybody prepared me for just how awful it was going to be. I walked into the stations like a deer looking into the headlights because I was so scared, but people were really cool and wanted to hear the music. I put myself completely out there and tried to be as thankful and as grateful for the opportunity.”
Paisley will take a break from his tour in June to serve as the opening act for the Rolling Stones when they perform in Nashville. His 2015 Crushin’ It World Tour, which also includes Justin Moore as an opening act, has shows scheduled through early October. All of the tour’s upcoming stops are listed on Paisley’s website.
