Paisley goes "Nashville"
Friday, October 16, 2009
– Brad Paisley announced today that he partnered witha team of four others to create and co-produce a show, tentatively titled "Nashville," a drama that revolves around an aspiring young female singer destined for stardom and a male songwriter whose career isn't as certain.
Paisley will be very involved in the show by including some of his hit songs as well as songs from other artists, and also appearing in the show as himself from time to time. The show is scheduled to begin airing next season on the CW network.
"I'm very excited to portray the country music world of my favorite town, Nashville, by showing the exciting life of musicians, songwriters and performers - all very talented people." said Paisley. "Look for some of your favorite country music stars to make their acting debuts on the show - either by playing themselves or as a character in the script. Country songs are like great scripts already and it's going to be fun to see how some unfold on the show."
Those partnering are Zach Quinto (actor - "Star Trek," "Heroes"), Mark Schwann (producer of "One Tree Hill"), Neal Dodson and Matt Bomer (writers - "White Collar" and "Chuck").

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. »»»
