Brad Paisley doesn't normally take as long to make an album as he did with Love and War, but he has his reasons this time around. The new LP, which arrived on April 21st, was released three years after its predecessor, but it came with a star-studded list of guests including Mick Jagger, John Fogerty, and Timbaland. Now that Love and War is finished, Paisely will hit the road later this month to support it with his new Weekend Warrior World Tour.

Paisley's 38-date tour kicks off on May 18th at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, New York. The North American leg of the tour will focus on arenas, casinos, and outdoor amphitheaters, with a short European jaunt through Sweden and Norway during July. Joining Paisley for the trek will be Dustin Lynch, Chase Bryant, and Lindsay Ell. Bryant and Ell will join Paisley in Canada and Bryant will continue on with him in Europe.

Love and War, Paisley's 11th studio album, even takes a page out of Beyoncé's Lemonade playbook by billing itself as a "visual album" with videos to accompany each of its 15 songs. The visual component – Paisley advertises Love and War as "country's first visual album" – was debuted April 28th on Apple Music.
