Just a little bit more than a year since his last visit, country star Brad Paisley returns to the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa. What's different? This tour finds the singer, songwriter and guitar ace promoting "Moonshine in the Trunk," his new studio album set to be released August 26.

Unfortunately, the collection includes the single "River Bank," a bland bro-country song about inner tube partying. Longtime Paisley fans will be happy to know, though, that recent setlists have included past, more substantial and clever songs such as "American Saturday Night," "Celebrity" and "Alcohol." Paisley has also been performing one of Van Halen's best-known hits on this tour.

Randy Houser, Charlie Worsham and Leah Turner open.

7 p.m. Friday; MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre, 4802 U.S. Highway 301, Tampa; $38.25-$80.25; (800) 745-3000; livenation.com
