Brad Paisley video with Andy Griffith debuts
Tuesday, July 1, 2008
– Brad Paisley is climbing the country airplay charts with his new single, "Waitin' on a Woman," inside the Top 30 in its second chart week. This week also marks the CMT and GAC debuts of the song's video with special guest star, Andy Griffith.
"It's one of the things I've had on my wish list of things to do," Paisley said. "He has influenced my life more than most people that I grew up with - more than most people that I actually knew my whole life. I wrote Andy a letter telling him what he has meant to me over the years and asked him to be in the video."
Griffith portrays a kindly older gentleman imparting wisdom to Paisley's character. The video tells the story of a lifelong love between Griffith's character and his wife - and while she would often keep him waiting on one occasion or another - their enduring love meant that the waiting was never a chore. Paisley says, "Andy heard the song and wanted to commit to working the long hours necessary to get the video right, and he really adopted this music video as if it was his own."
"Waitin' on a Woman" is airing now on CMT and GAC, where it debuted into both networks' top rotations on Monday.

Brad Paisley's new live hits CD is a bit of a tease. That's because it only goes half way in replicating the true live Paisley experience. Watching the accompanying concert videos at a Paisley show, whether the venue screen is showing Andy Griffith during Waitin' on a Woman or the montage of recently-deceased celebrities that accompanies When I Get Where I'm Going, reveal how Paisley simply must be seen to be fully enjoyed.

Brad Paisley has grown up on his eighth album. Yes, the West Virginian maintains a sense of humor, but apparently aging has left its mark on a maturing singer who has never forsaken his country roots. That is ever so apparent in songs like Anything Like Me and Oh Yeah, You're Gone. The former finds Paisley looking at the passage of time through his son's life in a tender, but not sappy look. On the latter, he's a five-year-old boy who doesn't get what he wants, which his grandfather notices. »»»
