Didn’t manage to buy a pass to Watershed Music Festival?

No need to worry, as headliner Brad Paisley will stop by Northern Quest Resort and Casino on Friday before heading to the Gorge.

The country superstar’s latest album, “Love and War,” which was released last year, features the same blend of humorous and heartwarming tunes Paisley has become known for.

On lead single “Today,” for instance, Paisley sings about how the thought of one good moment can pull you through the tough times.

“And I don’t know about tomorrow/Right now the whole world feels right/And the memory of a day like today/Can get you through the rest of your life,” he sings.

But on “selfie#theinternetisforever,” he switches gears and starts reprimanding those who should probably have their phones taken away.

“Your grandmother’s in an open casket/You’re in a suit and shades/You take your iPhone out and snap it, #sadday/You oughta be ashamed,” he sings.

His live shows have been known to be just as varied, so expect a lot of laughs and at least a few tears.
