Brad Paisley must love Minnesota winters. He’s returning Jan. 14 to Xcel Energy Center. It’ll be the third show on his Camobunga 2012 World Tour. Opening will be the Band Perry and Scotty McCreery, your "American Idol" 2011.
Paisley played at the X in January 2010. His first book, "Diary of a Player," will be published Nov. 1. His latest album, "This Is Country Music," debuted at No. 1 when it was released in May.
No ticket details have been announced yet for Paisley’s new tour.
