Brad Paisley to Scandinavia this summer!…
One of the brightest country stars in the USA- Brad Paisley will visit and perform in Sweden for the first time at the end of August. He will start off at Cirkus in Stockholm, Wednesday August 24th and then continue with his band to Lisebergshallen in Gothenburg, Saturday August 27th.
Brad Paisley is a great musical talent, mostly known as a fantastic guitarist and song writer. He has a great personality accompanied by a wonderful voice, filled with self irony and humor that is clearly reflected in his songs and videos.
Adored by women and admired by men, Brad Paisley has quickly become one of the absolutely greatest performers in modern American country music.
Brad Paisley was born 1972 and his passion for music started at the age of 8 when his grandfather gave him his first guitar. He started writing his own songs as early as 12 years old and two years later Paisley did his first official performances as the lead of his first band C-notes.
Paisley signed his first big record contract with Arista Records in Nashville 1998. Over the last 10 years he has completed 7 albums and sold more than 12 millions CD’s. Some of his greatest hits are “Water”, “Online”, “Celebrity”, “Letter To Me”, “I’m Gonna Miss Her”, “Mud On The Tires”, “She’s Everything” and “American Saturday Night”.
When Brad Paisley saw the movie “Father of the bride” he felt compelled to write a song about the young girl in the movie. When the new song was finished there was a video to be made. Paisley says: Of course I asked the young actress Kimberly Williams from the movie to take part in my video. Paisley continues: When I called Kimberly I definitely had other motives”.
Kimberly Williams did perform in the video of course. After the shoot Brad and Kimberly started to meet on a regular basis. They then went on to get married at a surprising ceremony in Malibu, California in 2003. Today they have two sons and share their time between Nashville, the suburb Franklin and Malibu.
All in all Brad Paisley has had 18 hits that all have become #1 on the Billbord-list “Hot Country Songs”. His new album by the title “This Is Country Music” will be released on the 24th of May.
