Brad Paisley Talks Country With UK’s Guardian

Because Brad Paisley’s doing two sold-out shows in London next week, he did this great interview with the Guardian. And by great, I mean long and interesting and full of things I didn’t know about him. Like, that he loves The Office (and he wants the UK show’s original creator and star Ricky Gervais to come to his London gig.) And that he thinks the people making country music today are pretty progressive, and it is NOT coming from “country hicks sitting behind a desk with a big cigar giving out record deals and driving round in Cadillacs with cattle horns on the front grille.” And that he’s quite pleased with the democracy in America. “Regardless of what I think about politics, I’m proud of our country for being that open-minded, and showing the world, which had sort of written us all off as all being closed-minded,” he says of our country’s willingness to elect a black man as President.
