Catching up with Ben Sesar

Pearl Artist, Ben Sesar, recently rolled through the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine, CA as part of Brad Paisley’s current and ongoing ‘Country Nation World Tour;’ where the country superstar and A-list drummer, once again, teamed up to thrill the packed house of 18,000 screaming fans through a seemingly endless list of country hits and a brilliant live performance to match.  Touring in support of Brad’s forthcoming and tenth studio album, Moonshine in the Trunk- which hosts the current No. 5 single on the Country Music Singles Chart, “River Bank”- the ‘Country Nation World Tour’ is currently heading to Minot, ND, for a headlining performance at the North Dakota State Fair, scheduled for July 26th, and will continue its way around the US and Canada before coming to a close at the Rogers K-Rock Centre, in Kingston, Ontario, on November 15th.  A full List of remaining tour dates can be found below.

For recently welcomed Pearl Artist, Ben Sesar, the ‘Country Nation World Tour’ serves as his debut behind the Pearl brand since joining the Pearl Drums Artist Roster earlier this year.  Throughout the remainder of 2014, Ben will be slamming away on a beautiful set of Reference Pure drums- the thin-shelled version of Pearl’s highly innovative Reference Series drums- which are custom finished in a “Vermilion Sparkle lacquer.”  Ben’s full specs can be found here.

Along with Ben’s work with Brad Paisley, Ben also hosts a series of incredibly informative drum lessons on his official website,  For more information on Brad Paisley, please visit
