Brad Paisley spent Memorial Day Weekend on a top-secret visit to Afghanistan with President Barack Obama to entertain troops. On Father’s Day, Brad continued to show his support for our troops during a show in Bangor, Maine. Sgt. Ryan Kelly and Sgt. Dana Gross were at the show, in life-size cut-out form, thanks to Sgt. Kelly’s wife, Amanda, and Sgt. Gross’ girlfriend, Erin Donnell. Brad pulled both of the cutouts on stage. The men have been stationed overseas for nearly a year.

“It got to me when I saw these cardboard cutouts,” he told the Bangor Daily News. “It’s just such a reminder of the sacrifices that these families make. That’s incredible. They’re not on tour playing sold-out shows; these guys are in harm’s way for a year.” Continue Reading

Brad Paisley Honors Firefighters With a Song for Disney’s Latest Movie

Brad Paisley

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.” Continue Reading

Watch Brad Paisley’s “River Bank” Music Video Starring Twiggy the Squirrel

Brad Paisley

Brad Paisley’s new video, “River Bank,” is full of summer fun – water, sun, boats, drinks and women in bikinis. While Brad performs the song knee-deep in the water, the real star of the video is Twiggy, the waterskiing squirrel. Throughout the video, Brad takes control of the camera, shooting a “selfie” video as he rides on an inner tube and hangs out with his friends. But it’s Twiggy who is the life of the party, zigzagging between party-goers and band members on his miniature water ski – pulled by a miniature boat.

It was a long, cold and often snowy winter for most of the country, but with the official start of summer just around the corner, people everywhere are trading their heavy coats and gloves for shorts and flip-flops. Now that the weather is warming up, it’s time to update those playlists with some hot new country music. Here are some of our new music picks, just in time for Memorial Day weekend:

Brad Paisley – “Riverbank”

Brad just released the lead single from his upcoming album, Moonshine In The Trunk, due out August 26. Whether sitting poolside, headed to the beach or hanging out by the river bank, this song is sure to get listeners in the mood for sunshine and good times.

Lady Antebellum – “Bartender”

Lady Antebellum’s new single, “Bartender,” is a breakup anthem with a twist. Rather than sitting at home and drowning in her sorrows, Hillary Scott is singing about hitting the dance floor and making friends with the bartender to move on from a failed relationship.

Miranda Lambert & Carrie Underwood – “Somethin’ Bad”

The two country powerhouses come together on this sassy duet, throwing aside their good-girl personas to skip out on a wedding, take the money from under their mattresses and head down to New Orleans to cause some trouble. The song is featured on Miranda’s new album, Platinum. Continue Reading

Brad Paisley is the latest country start to join a reality singing competition. Brad will act as a judge on ABC’s Rising Star alongside pop star Kesha and rapper Ludacris. Josh Groban is set to host the show, which will premiere Sunday, June 22, on ABC.

Rising Star is based on an Israeli show of the same name. It is a live talent competition that encourages viewers to vote in real time by using an app. Contestants are separated from the judges and audience by a see-through LED screen, where images of fans voting at home appear live. Each contestant can see the votes coming in throughout the performance. If they reach a certain number of votes, the screen rises and the singer can see the judges and the live studio audience.

Watch a preview below:
