Tonight: An intentional visit with Brad Paisley, Star Jones on Huma and Hillary, and igniting "The Grill" with armed Arkansas teachers

This evening "Piers Morgan Live" welcomes country music star Brad Paisley for a live, face to face primetime interview.

Paisley is currently on tour with his new album “Wheelhouse,” a record which features his notorious duet with LL Cool J entitled “Accidental Racist.”

The controversial song received national attention, which in part was Paisley’s intention. As opinionated as he is talented, Paisley and Morgan will discuss much more than country music on the program, including gun control, Barack Obama, and the recent "Rolling Stone" cover featuring accused Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Meanwhile, Paisley will not be the only star on the program tonight. Former prosecutor and television personality Star Jones will be back in studio to discuss the scandal that is currently capturing America’s attention: Weinergate. Anthony Weiner, also known as Carlos Danger, says this most recent scandal is personal not political, but do the Clinton’s see it that way?

Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s longtime friend and personal aide, met with the former Secretary of State’s spokesman Monday night. Jones and Morgan will offer their opinion on what this meeting means for Weiner’s mayoral hopes and also perhaps for the former first lady's potential 2016 presidential bid.

While her spokesman dined with Abedin, Clinton herself sat down for breakfast with Vice President Joe Biden this morning. The two friends will possibly become competitors for the 2016 Democratic nomination. On the heels of the table for two, Morgan asks Jones whether there's more on the menu than simply Western omelet's and turkey bacon.

Also tonight, Morgan talks to political commentator Ben Ferguson and Brenda Robinson, President of the Arkansas Education Association. Joining the host on "The Grill," expect things to warm up as the trio debate an Arkansas school’s decision to arm teachers.

Finally, Alan Dershowitz returns with P.J. Crowley, former assistant secretary of state for public affairs in the Obama Administration, as the men assess Tuesday's verdict in the Bradley Manning trial.

How might the verdict influence the issue of surveillance in America, and what might this ruling mean for Edward Snowden?

Tune in this evening at 9 as Brad Paisley sings a tune, Star Jones keeps up with the latest Anthony Weiner news, and Ben Ferguson and Brenda Robinson ignite "The Grill."

    Piers, you have done such a good job keeping the gun conversation going and trying to hold leaders accountable. I believe you agree that our mental health system needs to be part of this conversation. In order to have a serious dialogue about mental health we must get beyond ignorant stereotypes and derogatory comments. I was disappointed by your program tonight. Your guest, Star Jones,made a ridiculous, irresponsible comment that she would be worried about a teacher having a gun if their bipolar meds had not arrived from the mail order pharmacy. That's no way to have a a meaningful dialogue about arming educators and it is yet another example of mindlessly bashing people with mental illness. Piers, you can do better than this.

    I am a member of the Clarksville Community and have two daughters going to school in Clarksville. There are many people in the community who either do not like the IDE of these guns in school or at least the way this was implemented by superintendent Hopkins and the school Board. This includes people who are teachers, educators and law enforcement. So please do not lump our entire community in with superintendent Hopkins.
    Thank you!

    Hi Piers. Great segment on guns in schools. As a mother of two I respect teachers and don't think they can be paid or praised enough for the work they put into educating our children. However, they are not mentally prepared or trained to use a gun. Anyone can possess a loaded weapon but that does not mean they will actually be able to properly use it. I'd hate to imagine what can happen if it were to fall into the wrong hands in a moment of crisis. Let's leave this job to our police officers and let our teachers handle what is already a great responsibility...our children's education. Thank You!!!
