Brad Paisley Soaks Cruzan Amphitheatre on August 14, Buy Tickets Friday

​Country fans can barely drink a glass of water these days without some image of Brad Paisley coming to mind. Last month he dove into a swimming pool while singing his hit single "Water" during the Academy of Country Music Awards, and more recently, he became a poster boy for the ongoing flood relief efforts in Middle Tennessee. 

Both sides of Paisley -- the fun-loving side and his charitable one -- come together for his H2O World Tour, which arrives on August 14 at West Palm Beach's Cruzan Amphitheater like a giant soaking cannonball in the dog days of summer.

Tickets for the show, which also will feature Darius Rucker, Justin

Moore, Easton Corbin, Steel Magnolia and Josh Thompson, go on sale at 10

a.m. Friday.  The tour is helping to raise money for the Hope Through

Healing Hands organization, which works to dig wells and purify water in

the U.S. and worldwide. But lest that spoil the fun, the show promises

to keep things light with plenty of water-themed activities like a

dunking booth and fishing simulator. Fans would expect nothing less from

the Academy of Country Music's Male Vocalist of the Year, whose song 

"Alcohol"  inspired concertgoers to wear lampshades as head


Tickets are $58 and $38 for reserved seats and $23.25 for

lawn. A $69 lawn four-pack is available in advance only and includes

parking and most fees. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at
