Open Letter to Brad Paisley - Country Music Star
Dear Brad Paisley;
You never cease to amaze your fans! Whether it's with your guitar playing, songwriting or your remarkable hits you just keep on entertaining us and we keep on enjoying you! I've been a fan of country music for many years and no other artist can sing about something as simple as water, fishing, the internet, or camouflage and turn it into another mega hit! Only you, and I'm thinking you just might be quite talented! :)
I thank your grandfather for giving you the gift of a guitar at the young age of eight. Your grandfather had seen something in you that no one else had. It was because of your grandfather that I gave my granddaughter a guitar at the age of three, we're still working on actually learning how to play it, or should I say stop playing with it and actually learn to play. Our guitars come in handy while listening to your songs and pretending we are jamming along with you. They also were a nice addition to our halloween costumes this year when I dressed as a cowgirl and my hubby was a cowboy!
I was wondering, were you nervous when you first performed at the tender age of ten at your church? I'm thinking you possibly felt right at home. Congratulations to being the youngest person honored into the Jamboree Hall Of Fame. That's a sensational triumph for a boy born and bred in West Virginia. The hometown folks of Glen Dale were very supportive of you. Being from such a small town was a bonus for both you and them.
You just don't sing country tunes, your smash hits border on southern rock and kind of edgy pop. You are truly a Brad Of All Trades when it comes to music! In the 14 years that you've been in the country music business you have created 10 albums which have garnished 16 number one hits! Wow, you are truly amazing! It just goes to prove that you aren't just making a pit stop, you possibly could be on music row for the long haul. You have achieved 48 awards such as entertainer of the year, vocalist of the year, song of the year etc.... do your awards have their own wing in your home? Or their own room? I should hope so! If you got it then you should flaunt it!
Brad Paisley is so likeable...
I always enjoy hearing the story on how you met your stunning wife, Kimberly Williams. We remember her as Annie Banks the beautiful bride in Father Of The Bride. You fell in love with her while watching the movie along with your girlfriend at that time. Years later you requested that Kimberly perform in one of your videos. The rest is history. Awww Brad that story is so sweet that's it's mushy! I guarantee that your sons Huck (2007) and Jasper (2009) will forever appreciate hearing the tale of how their parents met for the first time and the history behind the scenes.
You deserved to win the 2010 CMA Entertainer Of The Year. Your emotional speech had the your fans, family and fellow artists in awe. You were correct country music fans support all artists, not just one. We are like one big happy family, well except for that one time that Kanye West shook things up a bit for Taylor Swift BUT look what that did for her career! We all wanted Kanye to interrupt us after that memorable moment! Regardless, we are anticipating the 2011 Country Music Awards show tomorrow night! I intend to have my annual Facebook party along with other fans who will be enjoying the show! You, along with Carrie Underwood will again be hosting. A perfect match! The two of you will also perform your duet "Remind Me," which should be as amazing as the video! I wish you both good luck with the show! I'll be laughing at your humor and cheering you on to win some more awards also!
My favorite video of yours is Online which was directed by Jason Alexander (George from Seinfeld). George plays a geek who's obsessed with MySpace. William Shatner and Estelle Harris who portrayed his parents were a perfect match for the video! Maureen McCormick (Marsha from the Brady Bunch), Taylor Swift and Kellie Pickler also made some memorable appearances. This is a hilarious, classic video!
I also wanted to let you know that due to the catchy tunes of your hit songs I find myself quoting your lyrics quite often. Your lyrics always generate a smile from Sunshine. I do have some song lyrics that are stuck in my head that only YOU could turn into a song and it WILL be a MEGA HIT, but only if you, Mr. Brad Paisley wrote and performed the song. No one else could make these lyrics work. If interested just give me a holla!
On April 19, 2015 it was announced that you snagged a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records for winning the most consecutive ACM Male Vocalist of the Year awards! How amazing is that!? Congratulations to you! Personally I think you should have won again in 2015 too. You rock!
Thank you again for all you give your fans! Thank you for being your genuine self. Your kind heart and sweet soul are transparent through your music. Your family is blessed to have you in their lives. Keep on entertaining and we'll keep on enjoying!
