News: Country rocker Brad Paisley will play Denver in January with the Band Perry, Scotty McCreeryBy Ricardo Baca | October 28th, 2011 | 1 Comment »
Country music fans in Colorado have had more than their fair share of big concerts in the last few months, from Taylor Swift to Keith Urban to Jason Aldean. Now they can add country rocker Brad Paisley to that mix, as he just announced a Denver date in January.
Paisley will headline the Pepsi Center on Jan. 21, Reverb has learned. As a part of the Camobunga World Tour, Paisley will be supported by some of the hottest names in the game – namely the Band Perry and recent American Idol Scotty McCreery.
The surprisingly reasonably priced tickets — $25-$59.75 — go on sale at 10 a.m. Nov. 4 at tickethorse.com.
An odd sidenote: We’re fans of the Band Perry’s big hit, “If I Die Young.” Surely you’ve heard it, but in case you haven’t.

And you know who else is a fan of the song? Denver ukulele folk act Danielle Ate the Sandwich, who covered the song at this year’s Rocky Mountain Folks Festival in Lyons — and absolutely slayed the audience with the unexpected gem. We like it so much that we’re posting her video here, too.
