Brad Paisley brings the guitar slingers to Charlotte

Nearly one year ago, Brad Paisley performed in Charlotte and brought a party with him. While past shows have highlighted his humor, Friday night at PNC Music Pavilion was different. Paisley brought a couple of guitar slingers with him to show a bit more of the rock side of today's pop-country landscape. Usually, Dustin Lynch would fit right in on a "country" lineup, but he was the odd man this time around. The night got started with Lindsay Ell, who found time to provide a couple of shredding moments. Next up, Chase Bryant conjured up his rock 'n' roll soul to win over the crowd. Lynch's heartfelt lyrics were a slight curveball to what was to come - a nearly two-hour set from the guitar slinger himself, Paisley. His humor was out, he had two bars on stage, but his fretwork was front and center a bit more after the acts he followed. The opening acts on this night weren't only a warmup, they were a precursor of what was to come.
