Checking in with Brad Paisley
Gooood morning Midnight Sunners! I hope you all slept well last night.
He seems like a really smart, down to earth guy.
Usually when I've got an interview with an A-list musician, their publicist calls me, then connects me to them. Not with Paisley ...
My phone rang, I picked it up, and it was him. I told him about the publicist thing and he said:
"That's a pain in the butt. I just make phone calls."
We talked about how he likes using nostalgia in his music, and his guitar playing. If you don't know much about Paisley, he's every bit as good a guitarist as he is a songwriter. And whether or not you like pop country, you have to admit -- 10 straight No. 1 singles is impressive.(Handout photo by Kurt Markus)
