Glen Dale, West Virginia (1999 – present)

Brad Paisley (born October 28, 1972) is an American country music singer and songwriter from Glen Dale, West Virginia.

Brad Paisley has stated that his love of country music stems from his maternal grandfather, who gave Paisley his first guitar at age 8 and taught him how to play. At age 12, Paisley wrote his first song, and by 13 he was the opening act for country singers.

Paisley graduated from John Marshall High School in Glen Dale and enrolled at Belmont University (from 1993 to 1995). While in college, he met Frank Rogers, a fellow student who went on to serve as his producer. Paisley also met Kelley Lovelace, who became his songwriting partner.

After graduating from Belmont, Paisley signed a songwriting contract with EMI Music Publishing. His debut as a singer was with the label Arista Nashville, with the song, “Who Needs Pictures” (released February 22, 1999). In May of that same year, he made his first appearance on the Grand Ole Opry. Seven months later he had his first #1 hit with, “”He Didn’t Have To Be.”

In 2000, Paisley made an appearance on the nationally televised special, “Route 66: Main Street America” featured on TLC (TV channel) and later that same year he won the Country Music Association’s (CMA) Horizon Award and the Academy of Country Music’s best new male vocalist trophy. He received his first Grammy Award nomination a year later. On February 17, 2001, after forty appearances on the show, he was inducted into the Opry Hall of Fame.

    What? ahahahahah. You don't know him, you can't say he's a terrible person! By the way we were talking about his lyrics, not his personality. Your argument is invalid, lol.

    Oh, I actually did. And he's also a terrible person which leads to the final conclusion that only bigot people would listen to this kind of music. Don't misunderstood. He's a good musician, but he's a really terrible and close-minded human being. It's sad he sold his soul to what bigot American country has to offer.

    OneRepublic93, you clearly haven't listened to Brad's discography. Most of his songs have got clever lyrics (Harvey Bodine is my favorite), and he's a great lyricists and guitar player. He seldom did songs about getting drunk and having sex .-.

    Writing songs about getting drunk and having sex is clever? Oh really?

    Remind Me with Carrie Underwood is great. But what is with country singers and the hats? I mean he does not have one picture without a hat. Correction, there is one, and he has a baseball cap one. lol
