Brad Paisley to Deliver Keynote Q&A at Billboard Touring Conference
Brad Paisley will be the 2015 Billboard Touring Conference & Awards' keynote speaker in a Q&A on Nov. 18 at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York. The conversation will be led by Ray Waddell, Billboard's executive director, content & programming for touring & live entertainment.
"Over the past decade, Brad Paisley has been one of country music's most consistent headliners, with a history of well-produced, well-executed and, most importantly, well-attended shows," said Waddell. "Brad is deeply engaged in his touring business both front- and back-of-house, he has a unique perspective, and he's probably the funniest guy in country music. This is going to be fun."
