Brad Paisley was honored with the prestigious Harmony Award by the Nashville Symphony during the 29th Annual Symphony Ball held at Schermerhorn Symphony Center on December 14. Former senator Bill Frist was on hand to present the award to Brad. The honor is presented each year to a person who “exemplifies musical excellence, embodies the spirit of community, contributes to Nashville’s vibrant music industry and makes a difference in people’s lives.”

As Senator Frist presented Brad with the award, he detailed Brad’s journey to Nashville, his dedication to music and his commitment to serving others. Brad has been especially supportive of initiatives Water=Hope Campaign and most recently Live Beyond, a Nashville nonprofit with a mission to provide medical care, clean water, nutritional support and development activities to impoverished communities in Haiti. 

After receiving the award, Brad performed his No. 1 hit “Southern Comfort Zone” with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, conducted by Kelly Corcoran, and an acoustic medley of “I’m Gonna Miss Her” and “I’m Still A Guy.” He finished his set with a rendition of “I’ll Be Home For Christmas.”
