It seems while Taylor Swift was busy twerking on Yahoo! Brad Paisley was making his own debut for his new single “Country Nation” on a brand new site that appears to be created/ran by WalMart. You can see the full video below: Besides being surrounded by Walmart ads, and even including Walmart employees in the video, we also learned that Brad Paisley is releasing his new album next Tuesday, August 25th. The album is titled “Moonshine in the Trunk” and I’m pretty sure there’s no twerking in these videos!
What would have been George Jones’ final concert appearance in Nashville, Tennessee, on November 22, 2013 is now a star-studded tribute to the country music legend. In addition, “Playin’ Possum! The Final NO Show” has been dubbed the official name of the event. “The evening of George Jones songs is going to be the best musical tribute Nashville has ever seen,” says Nancy Jones. “We have many surprises planned, and I just wish George could be here to see what we are doing for him.” The SOLD OUT tribute concert will feature performances by Brad Paisley, Martina McBride, Big & Rich, Loretta Lynn, Lee Ann Womack, Craig Morgan, Thompson Square, Ronnie Milsap, Bill Anderson and rockers Megadeth. Previously announced performers include Kid Rock, George Strait, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, Alan Jackson, Dierks Bentley, Reba McEntire, Alabama, Travis Tritt, Tanya Tucker, Josh Turner, The Oak Ridge Boys, Charlie Daniels, Jamey Johnson, Montgomery Gentry, Sam Moore, and others. “George Jones had a way of putting his finger right into your wounds and letting you know, ‘I understand. I know your pain.’ While ‘Wild Irish Rose,’ may be an unexpected choice with so many great songs to choose from, it is a perfect example of Mr. Jones way of reaching inside every one of us, and making us aware that we all have pain. By far the most pain a man can endure, sadly as so many of our Vietnam Vets know, is to come home and find no one wants him. In the end, as so many do, they end their days inside of a bottle, as “Rose” knows too well,” says Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine. George Jones, often referred to as the “the greatest living country singer” was on his farewell tour titled “The Grand Tour,” when he passed away. The icon’s hits, “I Don’t Need Your Rockin’ Chair”, “Who’s Gonna Fill Their Shoes”, “White Lightning” and “He Stopped Loving Her Today” will surely become standards for honky-tonk cover bands for years to come.
The Official Music Video For Brad Paisley’s Single, “Beat This Summer.” Below is the official music video for Brad Paisley’s current single, “Beat This Summer.” The song comes from Paisley’s latest album, Wheelhouse. At first I wasn’t so sure how I felt about this song, but after a few listens I approved! The video is VERY cute! It stars a sweet little girl and boy who spend a “romantic” day at the boardwalk. What gets me even more, is the boy resembles a young Paisley! Watch the video below and tell us what you think!
