Brad Paisley

Country music superstar Brad Paisley will host a night of stand-up comedy featuring comedians Jon Reep, Greg Hahn, Theo Von, Sarah Tiana, Keith Alberstadt and more at TPAC’s Andrew Jackson Hall on Thursday, April 16 at 7:30 p.m., as part of the weeklong Wild West Comedy Festival. Year two of the festival is set for Tuesday, April 14th through Sunday, April 19th in Nashville, and brings a full slate of all-star comedians to its lineup. Tickets to the Paisley-hosted evening go on sale this Friday, March 27th at www.wildwestcomedyfestival.com.

As host, Paisley will introduce and interact with each of the scheduled comedians. No stranger to the comedy world, Paisley has lent his voice to Comedy Central’s Emmy Award-winning, animated show “South Park” and has a flair of his own for comedic animation, humorous songs and goofball antics on tour. Paisley has fine-tuned his live comedic timing in his role as co-host of the CMA Awards, as a character on sitcoms and numerous appearances on television talk shows.

This year’s Wild West Comedy Festival’s stellar lineup also includes previously announced performers Kevin Hart, Cristela Alonzo, Eric Andre, Doug Benson, Lewis Black, Hannibal Buress, Steve Byrne, Frank Caliendo, Jeff Garlin, Anjelah Johnson, Colin Jost, Nick Kroll, Joel McHale, John Mulaney, Tig Notaro, Jeanne Robertson and Rory Scovel.

In addition, truTV’s Impractical Jokers will return with their all-new ‘Where’s Larry?’ Tour, starring The Tenderloins; and Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes will present their popular podcast Jay & Silent Bob Get Old. Filmmakers David Zucker and Jerry Zucker will oversee a screening of the classic comedy Airplane!, followed by an audience Q&A.

More than 20,000 attended the inaugural festival in 2014, and were treated to more than 29 shows from the all-star lineup. Based on last year’s success, the 2015 event has added one day, extending the festival to a total of six days. Full schedule and ticket information is available at www.wildwestcomedyfestival.com

The festival’s venue partners include some of the most iconic locations in Nashville such as the Ryman Auditorium, TPAC’s Andrew Jackson Hall and James K. Polk Theater, Bridgestone Arena, Belcourt Theatre, City Winery Nashville, Zanies Nashville and Exit/In.

Brad Paisley & Kimberly Williams Renew Wedding Vows

Brad Paisley and Kimberly Williams Paisley

At a recent event, Brad Paisley and wife Kimberly Williams Paisley revealed they recently renewed their wedding vows after 12 years of wedded bliss. Kimberly told Us Weekly that the whole ceremony was “campy” and perfect.

We did a really, really campy wedding vow renewal ceremony,” she told Us at the 23rd annual “A Night at Sardi’s” benefit for the Alzheimer’s Association at the Beverly Hilton. “It was awesome.”

She wore a wedding dress that bared her pink panties underneath at the surprise ceremony at a friend’s house.

“You could see my pink panties underneath it,” she recalled. “It was pretty awesome. One of my best friend’s went and bought it for me. It was a surprise, I didn’t know we were doing it.”

“We had a traditional wedding march… Our processional walk,” she told Us. “It was very casual and very campy and silly. It was perfect.”
