I does a clip of the brand new music video for all the Alabama from the reigning CMA entertainer of the year -- friend of ours Brad Paisley.
And it is the country singer's nineteen.
Number one single.
The second release from his brand new album this is country music now available.
Everywhere music is sold my the man himself -- at some of the -- I really I am.
I in all I'm honored to even talk to me.
First Oprah light idea that's great to see -- They have -- right wing.
Right wing nut job like yourself with a message I -- -- what your -- his concern I don't know yet I have got a right or not -- -- fathers Wellington and well I don't.
I enjoyed anything more than sit on the bus for the -- your wife your dad and your dad and I agree in a totally new and a new white sand not I don't totally -- we have half that's exactly what.
Bob you know is really cool -- for me.
Because I'm I'm a big fan of yours and and -- very -- -- -- invited me on your bus which was outside David Letterman studios.
And you played for me this first song about what I love about country music.
That's right it was we just finished the next had been when we have it was right before I was gonna say on the CMA awards that -- right and you said -- little playlist and then and the awards and and -- -- -- -- -- we did it whenever -- it was the first single off the sound which was a good.
Six months too early for a first single and of being -- three single because.
Oh Alabama the second single went to number one the same AM came out.
Yeah I I -- but I don't but to -- this is it but you know you really captured -- -- -- mind good to remember in the word test -- Daniels are saying the -- -- damage potentially I can't revelers of that fact.
Yeah but you can't.
Now that's -- yours by the way that's the hardest thing to be a singer how.
How do you remember the words to these songs I don't get I could never do it.
There's a -- to themselves and makes it easier like it would be your earpiece are the words is there to remind you know not -- and a hot and I that would be actually harder than probably just trying to remember.
Right so -- what can what I love about country music told a heart and soul and and it's everything in and you really captured it in in that first single in the.
Yet you know.
I really wanted to write a song that paid tribute to some of the things that.
That I felt like -- unique to country and and there's a few things and that's what kind of where the basis for the album came from you're talking about.
We -- of patriotism we sing about religion -- -- about divorce I was trying to think of of a song from any other format didn't even use the word divorce.
I don't know if I ever heard the word divorce and and like a pop and up pops RF -- and I and I think it's because countries is lyrically.
But I but there's also first on the big Alabama fan you have the -- -- -- bigger fan there's than me yeah I.
And outside -- -- and I and -- -- out of my mouth and absolutely.
So I love them and the fact he did this with them really could that just.
I just loved it literally it's a neat it it became something that just took on this whole life of its own and I just wrote this little song with a couple friends of mine that's that's fun look at a young girl that falls along with their music and we realized the perfect bridge for our size of ridge mountains recently wrote this with Randy Ellen and now music and brought in the guys in that we've done everything they -- the New -- would mean we've done.
I got to meet him and I that -- around him was a lot of fun for me.
I you know and -- -- those guys he gets an album art even cooler in person and I I agree with you I was like so.
You know the other thing about it is one -- song on the album that really I liked a lot from and that was -- I want dysfunctional.
No no no -- -- mention the three times this empties it.
-- -- -- -- -- It is the one with Carrie Underwood had I.
I guess I never met her but I I watched her from the -- years and I was just always a big fan and she's grown into such a huge artist.
And -- voice what it comes in on that that cut.
Is just amazing it is an actress she's the best singer we have maybe ever had just when she came in the studio and -- her parts for this song.
She nailed every time she sang it -- -- a lot like what's on that record of course we did it several times to make sure that we had all it takes that we need that.
It she just never sings badly it's unbelievable her town.
You know I'm I'm -- -- compliment you because I've I've gotten millions spent some time with you and you are.
I and I met a lot of people interviewed a lot of people with the issue probably one of the most down to earth people.
I've ever met a -- You know 70000 people and it doesn't impact you and I don't know how you do it is just you you're very rooted in who you are what could have a 'cause I know -- -- had -- that happened.
I guess us -- my day at a had a very down -- father my wife is an actress and and famous herself -- more down to earth than anyone he really is -- -- somebody might be married way above you I agree totally both of listed.
But that's true to what did you got to remind me -- -- but it's really it's really about is realizing what's.
What it all means I mean radio from Alabama system and -- I met him for the first time at a saint June -- he's responsible for country music being involved with saint -- And they're just -- -- celebrity exactly.
And in Brady said all these things you might win all of these concert she'll -- these record filmmaker.
They won't matter what will matter in the end is what you did for people and and did you do something good with this did you.
Did you help out some people who are less fortunate that'll that'll be what will determine whether -- you have to.
And you -- that I hope so listen I love the CD hits in non music's stores everywhere online Amazon.com etc.
