Brad Paisley called us this morning and it was a great way to kick off the week! Here are a few highlights from our interview with him this morning...
Did he watch the Super Bowl?
“I turned it off. Once the power went out, I actually went to a movie. I was the only one there. I went to go see ‘The Hobbit’ because I have wanted to see it and never have had three hours over the last couple of months. There is nothing geekier than skipping the Super Bowl and going to see ‘The Hobbit.”
What was that like?
“I got into a discussion with the kid selling me popcorn. He said, ‘Is that a Star Wars shirt man?’ He can see just like two letters on my shirt that is under my coat. I told him it was and he said, ‘Man how geeky are we that I can tell it is a Star Wars shirt by just two letters?”
We hear you are mastering the album in Maine. Why there?
“That is where a man named Bob Ludwig works who is one of the best mastering engineers the world has ever seen. We just decided to do it a little differently this time and go up and use him. I really wanted this (album) to have as little of a ‘typical stamp’ on it as possible. That is one way we changed it up and it was worth it. He is a brilliant guy.”
Listen to our entire interview with Brad as he talks about playing at the White House, more on his new music and making the music video for "Southern Comfort Zone."
