Brad Paisley is bringing a bit of country to the city _ the city of London, that is.
The reigning Country Music Awards Entertainer of the Year is playing London's O2 Arena on Wednesday. He'll be expecting a warm welcome after two sold-out concerts in the British capital last year.
Paisley has already taken his "H20 II: Wetter and Wilder World Tour" across the United States. He kicks off his European swing in London, then has three dates in Ireland _ Dublin, Castlebar and Killamey _ before shows in Sweden, Norway and Denmark. He returns to the U.S. in September.
Paisley's seventh studio album is "This Is Country Music." The country star has also been heard in theaters recently, as he has two songs in Disney's animated film sequel "Cars 2."
