Anyone who has listened to a Brad Paisley album for more than a few minutes knows that he is as silly as they come. Anybody who has watched Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood host the CMA Awards for the last four years has seen what a crazy sense of humor Brad Paisley has. However, only those who have been on tour with Brad Paisley know what a practical jokester he is. Any of the country music artists who have toured with Brad Paisley over the last few years could probably assure St. Louisans that Brad Paisley’s May 18th stop here will be full of fun.
Many country music stars have been the victims of Brad Paisley’s pranks. In 2010, while Miranda Lambert was on stage singing White Liar, Brad Paisley ran a video of Miranda Lambert’s future husband, Blake Shelton, with a bunch of other girls. The video featuring female fans, had been edited from various meet and greets.
Darius Rucker was the victim of stinky limburger cheese stuck to his microphone. Easton Corbin tried to sing Roll With It while being pummeled with dinner rolls by Brad Paisley. Steel Magnolia tried to keep their composure while being sprayed with water guns. During Chuck Wicks’ performance of his song Stealing Cinderella, Brad Paisley sent two guys with ill-fitting dresses and gray beards on stage to hit Chuck Wicks on the head with their “magic” wands. A more recent tour mate, Jerrod Niemann, had the pleasure of people dressed as superheroes interrupting his performance.
Once in a while, however, country music artists rise up and plot their revenge on Brad Paisley. Brad Paisley, too, has been on the receiving end of some pretty funny pranks.
Jewel had Brad Paisley arrested at an airport in Nashville. Blake Shelton brought Spiderman and Captain America onstage for some funny, interrupting antics before Blake Shelton himself smothered Brad Paisley in kisses. Brett Eldridge swapped Brad Paisley’s Corvette for a child’s ride-on toy Camaro.
The latest celebrity to get Brad Paisley, however, might be the last person you’d expect. None other than baby-faced American Idol, Scotty McCreery, jumped into the prank ring with Brad Paisley, getting his feet wet with a spoof on the headlining star himself. During their tour stop in Springfield, Missouri on February 25th, Scotty McCreery walked out on stage during Brad Paisley’s song Celebrity, dressed as Brad Paisley! Sporting the signature white hat, an apparently drawn-on beard, a Brad Paisley t-shirt and a guitar, Scotty McCreery surprised the unsuspecting, but good-natured country superstar.
Enjoying his own prank, Scotty McCreery later tweeted:
Scotty Paisley went out to join @BradPaisley on “Celebrity” tonight!
Well #shotsfired tonight.. too bad i only got a pistol n @BradPaisley prolly has a bazooka somewhere, hahah
Brad Paisley returned Twitter fire with this tweet and picture of Scotty “Brad” McCreery:
So some young smart@$& who looked a little like me & a lot like @ScottyMcCreery showed up tonight..
(See the photo of “Scotty Paisley” here)
Past victims of Brad Paisley would probably tell Scotty McCreery to run for the hills about now. Brad Paisley is not the kind who will let this little mockery fade away without retaliation. Will Brad Paisley get Scotty McCreery back at the next tour stop, or could St. Louis see a little bit of the hilarious action when the two arrive here together for Brad Paisley’s Country Mega Ticket concert on May 18th?
Knowing Brad Paisley, it just might be both!
Only time will tell, but two things are certain, when Brad Paisley, Scotty McCreery and The Band Perry roll into town this spring, they will have already amassed quite a few stories to someday hand down to their grandchildren and, the St. Louis concert is going to be a blast.
