“Personally, I like winning awards — they’re extremely valuable over the course of one’s career,” Paisley tells Copley News Service interview. He added,”…Nor do I have time to dust or polish the statuettes, so my parents take care and display most of them at their house. Somehow they keep track of it all.”
Brad Paisley is a four-time Academy of Country Music nominee this year, including Entertainer of the Year, Top Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year for 5th Gear, and Video of the Year for “Online”. After the May 18 show at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Paisley will spend some time at his home in Tennessee before heading back out on the road.
The Paisley Party, which fires up in Albuquerque, NM June 11, is a six-month national tour, and a part of the music biz that Paisley loves. “True, it can separate you for a little too long from family and friends, but I really love it on the road,” he said. I’m sure it doesn’t hurt that his tour bus, nicknamed Air Force One, reportedly comes with every amenity, including a full-size kitchen and satellite television.
