Paisley Performs For The President

Country singer BRAD PAISLEY was granted a special audience with U.S. president BARACK OBAMA on Tuesday (21Jul09) when he was invited to Washington, D.C. to perform at the White House.
The star took to the stage in front of Obama and his wife Michelle to play a string of his hits, and later even joked with the world leader in an attempt to win a second invitation to play a private show, reports People.com.
Before dedicating his song I Thought I Loved You Then to the First Couple, Paisley laughed, "This would sound great on Air Force One. Maybe on a romantic night you could fly around... look at the lights."
Paisley's gig is the second in the White House Music Series, which sees one night a month dedicated to different music genres. The 15 June (09) show was all about jazz, while Tuesday's event focused on country.

its a shame that brad is turning from a normal country singer to a hollywood type of personality, forgetting about the fans that have backed you, 2 get you where ur at today, to spend nights playing to people like barack who doesnt even like country music, instead of performing in pittsburgh/wheeling, the area that has helped him the most in his raise to stardom is a slap in the face to all country fans, hey brad,dont go hollywood on us, or play for people who dont even appriciate your talents, and cant even produce a birth certificate to prove he is a U.S. citizen, n turn ur back on your true fans, its a discrace, keep doing this, and ur star will fall faster than the dixie {who?} chicks, brad, come to wheeling/pittsburgh!!!
