BRAD PAISLEY takes his American Saturday Night tour to New York City’s Madison Square Garden tonight with DIERKS BENTLEY and JIMMY WAYNE in the opening slots. He chose those two artists for this trek because they’ve all been friends for a while now, and Brad knew they’d deliver every night. He says, quote, “We really wanted to give the kind of show to these fans where they have gotten their money’s worth before I even strike the first note.” Brad’s fans have especially taken to Jimmy. He says, quote, “[I’ve] heard about him in meet-and-greets from a lot of people…Jimmy really relates to these people.”
Dierks can’t wait to perform at Madison Square Garden tonight. He says, quote, “It is one of the coolest places you can play, and it’s always a big deal.” After the New York City show, Brad, Dierks and Jimmy will play a few more dates before wrapping the 2009 leg of the American Saturday Night tour up this Saturday night in Uncasville, Connecticut.

A Massachusetts man is in police custody in Wisconsin after he allegedly kidnapped a Honda car salesman during a test drive and drove the vehicle more than one thousand miles. The Janesville Gazette in Wisconsin reports the 32-year-old suspect was arrested Friday after he was caught speeding and found to be operating a motor vehicle without owner consent.

The Daily Telegraph reports more than 600 volunteer firefighters have signed a petition, objecting to the replacement of dark navy blue outfits with bright yellow ones that become see-through when wet. The women claim the shirts get wet from leaking hoses and even when it rains, and male colleagues can see right through them. A spokesman for Australia’s Rural Fire Service admitted the yellow shirts were made with thinner material and promised the next order would be made with thicker material and include pockets over the chest to prevent any see-through issues.

STUDIO 330 IN THE MORNING SESSION CUT OF THE DAY: BILLY CURRINGTON – CLICK HERE TO VISIT BILLY’S WEBSITE
Billy Currington was raised in Rincon, Ga., about 30 minutes outside of Savannah, Ga. His mother married a man named Larry Currington when Billy was a year-and-a-half old. Through the next few years, Billy experienced the turmoil that alcohol abuse can do to a family. “He’d get drunk and a little crazy,” Currington says. “He eventually died of drinking and cancer.”
Currington auditioned at Opryland USA theme park as a junior in high school but didn’t make it. However, he moved to Nashville after high school to pursue a career in music. His first stint didn’t last long, but he returned after paying his dues at a bar in Georgia. In Nashville, he worked for a concrete company and then part-time as a personal trainer. One of his clients led him to demo work and then writing songs. Shortly after his publisher chose not to renew his contract, he signed to Mercury Records.
His debut single, “Walk a Little Straighter,” tells the story of a child watching his drunk father stumbling through the door and vowing not to make that same mistake when he becomes a father. (Currington wrote the chorus at age 12.) His self-titled album was released in 2003.
In 2004, he memorably swung from a chandelier in the music video for his duet with Shania Twain, “Party For Two.” He parlayed his exposure into a successful second album, Doin’ Somethin’ Right, in 2005. The first single, “Must Be Doin’ Somethin’ Right,” reached No. 1 at country radio at the end of 2005.
