Brad Paisley Austin City LimitsBrad Paisley kicked off the final leg of the Paisley Party Tour in Memphis to a sell-out crowd. As a surprise to his fans, Paisley invited Country legend Gene Watson to open the show. The announced line-up for Friday’s concert also included Darius Rucker and Dierks Bentley."The last time we played here in Memphis I got the worst review I think I've ever gotten. I remember it saying, among other things, that I was no Gene Watson. I certainly agree with that. That gave me an idea. In the spirit of giving everyone their money's worth, I asked Gene if he would join the show. I am so thrilled to have the real deal here tonight. There's nothing like kicking off the final leg of the Paisley Party with the one and only Gene Watson singing his amazing 'Farewell Party,'" Paisley said last night.
