Those words could be coming soon from the lips of Mick Jagger because the Stones tweeted today: "The Rolling Stones will be joined by the incredible @BradPaisley in Philly on June 18! What song do you think he'll play on? #Stones50"
Paisley will not be the first country performer to join the band on its tour. Carrie Underwood did so in Toronto, Keith Urban in Los Angeles and Taylor Swift in Chicago.
Paisley has been on his own tour. He played to more than 52,000 fans in Cincinnati, Charlotte and Raleigh, N.C. this past weekend. Special guests on the tour include Chris Young, Lee Brice and The Henningsens.
