– Brad Paisley surprised a lucky fan last night at his American Saturday Night tour stop in Jacksonville, Fla. with a 2009 Chevy Silverado pickup truck for being the 1,000,000th fan to attend his concert in the last year.
Tim and Amber Brown from Orange Park, Fla., with their two children James and Logan, were approached before the show and given front row seats under the guise of an upgrade and then immediately following the show were invited backstage to meet Paisley - still not knowing why or what was happening.
When they were introduced to Paisley, he posed for a quick photo and then said, "Let's go for a walk." As they were walking, he told them they were the millionth ticket holder, and he had planned something special for them. When they approached the truck Paisley handed Tim Brown a set of keys and said, "It's yours."
Amber was overcome with emotion and speechless while her husband shook the singer's hand and thanked him over and over. Brown is in the Navy, and the couple is expecting their third child. "You just don't know how much of a blessing this truck is to us," said Tim.
The American Saturday Night tour continues on to Tampa (Oct. 16) and West Palm Beach (Oct. 17) playing to capacity crowds in each venue before heading to New York City and Madison Square Garden on Oct. 21.
