Brad Paisley has teamed up with Colt Ford for a “rip rap” remix of Paisley’s “River Bank.” In the clip, Ford raps the bridge while Paisley sings, a loud party going on in the background. “River Bank” is the lead single from Paisley’s upcoming album, Moonshine in the Trunk, out August 26.

“I was trying to figure out where to go from here, what to write and what felt like what I wanted to do,” he said. “There’s a groove that feels like that, and I think we grabbed that groove when we made this track and, more than that, there’s a mindset that I am completely ready for after this winter.”

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.

Watch the video below:
