Brad Paisley On Nashville’s Opening-Season Finale
Brad Paisley recently released his eighth studio album, his chart-topping Wheelhouse collection, which includes not only his current smash, “Beat This Summer,” but also his incredible 21st number-one hit, “Southern Comfort Zone.” And now, as Brad’s playing to packed houses on his new Beat This Summer Tour, he’s also joined by two other hot stars with their own growing collection of big hits, Chris Young and Lee Brice. Asked how he feels about being a more established, longtime hitmaker and seeing new generations of artists like Chris and Lee coming into their own, Brad offers a characteristically tongue-in-cheek perspective. Brad says: “Yeah, it’s why I can’t watch Nashville, ‘cause the theme of an aging singer fighting to stay relevant with her record company as (laughs)…it just…that just…that hits just too close to home to me.

- Brad really can watch Nashville! The ABC series features his wife, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, and now Brad will be making a guest appearance as himself, performing with show characters Rayna (Connie Britton) and Deacon (Charles Esten) in Nashville‘s opening-season finale, airing May 22nd. Catch the show tomorrow at 10pm, ET, on ABC.
