– Brad Paisley received the Harmony Award from the Nashville Symphony at the 29th annual Symphony Ball, A Midwinter Night's Dream,
held at Schermerhorn Symphony Center on Saturday night.

Each year the Symphony presents the Harmony Award to a person who exemplifies musical excellence, embodies the spirit of community and contributes to Nashville's music industry.
After accepting the award, Paisley performed his number one hit Southern Comfort Zone with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, conducted by Kelly Corcoran, followed by an acoustic medley of two more of his number one hits I'm Gonna Miss Her and I'm Still A Guy. Paisley finished his set with a jazzy rendition of I'll Be Home For Christmas.
