Paisley participates in 50 States in 50 Days
Thursday, September 11, 2008
– Brad Paisley will participate in "50 States in 50 Days," an initiative launched by ABC News and USA Today to coincide with Election Day. Reporting from every state in the weeks leading up to the election, the media event kicks off with a weeklong rail journey, as ABC's Good Morning America airs live from four states and Washington, D.C., on "Whistle Stop '08," traveling and broadcasting from a train. Paisley will appear on the show on the third day of the journey, performing near the train stop in Gustavus, Ohio, on the morning of Wednesday, Sept. 17.
"I think they're doing a really admirable thing by going out, leaving their New York studio, and covering the heart of America," said Paisley. "It's great. It's a unique way to bring everything into focus in terms of our country and our people."

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.

On the latter, he's a five-year-old boy who doesn't get what he wants, which his grandfather notices. ...
