When the president calls, Brad Paisley answers

Brad Paisley air force one

Over the weekend, Brad Paisley traded in his tour bus for something a bit bigger and more important … Air Force One. 

Turns out Brad made a tour detour and joined President Obama for a trip overseas where the singer was the surprise guest at Bagram Airfield, the main U.S. base in Afghanistan. He played an hour-long acoustic set for approximately 3,000 U.S. troops. From the stage, Paisley referred to the show as “the honor of my life.”

‘Nashville’, Season 2, Episode 21 – RECAP

Nashville-Season-2-Episode-21-Recap-and-Review-All-Or-Nothing-With-Me

With the Nashville season 2 finale airing tomorrow night, and fans in high spirits after the renewal announcement (with a full 22 episodes!), it’s about time we muse on this rather sweet penultimate episode that aired last week.

Rayna begins the episode by having a conference meeting with radio promoters, as her album release is coming up. She’s cut short, however, when Bucky informs her that when out on a tour of Afghanistan to perform for the troops, Luke has been injured and rushed back home to the hospital. Rayna flies to New York City to see him, and luckily he’s not seriously injured, although the make-up people did a pretty good job of making his face look weirdly cut and swollen. You made Luke a creepy invalid, well done guys! He’s gutted that he never got to perform for the troops, so Rayna suggests they go to Fort Campbell just outside of Nashville and they can all perform. Following a few arguments where he’s been pissy, she asks him why he’s pushing her away, and he admits that when the bomb went off, all he thought about was her and his kids, and he loves her far more than he believes she loves him. However, Rayna tells him she’s all in, but to complete the episode she performs ‘A Life That’s Good’ with her daughters, with Maddie persuading her to invite Deacon out as well.
