Country singer Brad Paisley tweeted out a picture to Husker nation hours before he took the stage in Lincoln for a free concert. 

Paisley is seen in the photo wearing a Nebraska hat with a handwritten "SF #27." The message stands for Sam Foltz's initials and his jersey number.

Husker punter Sam Foltz died in a car crash in Wisconsin this summer. 

The concert is part of Paisley's Country National College Tour. It was held in parking lot 8 north of Memorial Stadium at 7:30 p.m. Thursday night. Students, faculty and staff had priority to attend the show.
