Brad Paisley At Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
With a sound mixing traditional country and Southern rock, country artist Brad Paisley has a string of Number One hits, a flawless streak of Gold or higher certified albums and a number of awards to his name. Born in October of 1972 in Glen Dale, West Virginia, Paisley’s love for music started at an early age. He began playing music when he was eight years old, after his grandfather gave him his first guitar. From then on, he couldn’t stop. He played in church, at Christmas parties and at Mother’s Day events. He wrote his first song when he was thirteen years old; the same year, he co-formed the band “Brad Paisley and the C-Notes” with some of his adult friends. His love for music never faltered, and Paisley graduated from college with a degree in music business. After graduation, he was signed with EMI Music Publishing and began his career as a songwriter. In 1999, he started his career as a singer and made his first appearance on the Grand Ole Opry. Two years later, he was invited to join the prestigious lineup of country music stars.
