Brad Paisley is headed to the big screen. He is writing and recording an original song, “All In,” for the upcoming Disney movie, Planes: Fire and Rescue. The film is the sequel to Disney’s Planes and tells the story of a crew of firefighters protecting Piston Peak National Park from wildfires. The storyline hits close to home for Brad, whose father was an EMT and assistant chief of the Glen Dale, W. Va. volunteer firefighting crew. His brother-in-law is also a first responder.

“The movie is essentially a tribute to firefighters told through these planes,” Brad told USA Today. “When John pitched the idea, he said it was a way of paying tribute to my dad. My brother-in-law is also a firefighter in Tennessee. These guys run toward the problem that everyone else is fleeing from.”

Brad also recorded a second track for the movie and voices the character of Bubba, a pickup truck with a broken heart. Brad has previously recorded songs for Cars and Cars 2. He is currently headlining his Country Music Nation Tour.
