If You Prank Brad Paisley, Better Duck And Cover
For the most part, touring country music stars are well-known for having great senses of humor. The truth is, if you don't have a great sense of humor, touring becomes an unbearable grind. Practical jokes and pranks are a fantastic way to pass the time and blow off a little of that 'road energy'. According to what I've seen and heard, Brad Paisley is the king of both.
Tour-mates Edens Edge are learning that you don’t mess with Brad. According to CMT Daily Roundup, Paisley has retaliated after the trio replaced his West Virginia doormat with one supporting their native Arkansas. Before the H20 II: Wetter & Wilder Tour stop in Columbus, Brad defended his homestate by lighting the Arkansas Razorbacks mat on fire! Future pranksters beware! If you don't believe it, you can watch the pyromania at http://ow.ly/605nt.
That same day, H20 II Tour opener Brett Eldredge got his prank in as well. Brett temporarily replaced Brad’s personal Corvette with a child-size yellow Camaro donning a “Paisley” license plate. You can see the picture at BrettEldredge.com.
So, if you have any ideas about pulling a prank or a practical joke on a country star, you may want to start a little lower on the food chain than Brad Paisley, Eden's Edge, or even Brett Eldridge. These guys are already a step ahead of you!
