Brad Paisley Begins ‘I Can’t Change the World’ Film in Haiti
Brad Paisley first visited Haiti seven months ago, to help build clean water stations as part of his involvement with Live Beyond … Thirst, along with his wife, actress Kimberly Williams-Paisley. Now the singer has returned to create a movie to go along with his song, ‘I Can’t Change the World.’
He announced he’d begun filming in a tweet earlier this week.

The 40-year-old says the song is his response to how the current high-tech, digital era can give people the false sense of being more connected, when it actually creates more distance.
“It makes you want to hide in your house,” he explains. “You feel helpless. This song and this film project examines the lives of several people as they start to realize that they have to figure this thing out. Giving up isn’t the answer. Hiding in your house isn’t the answer. Changing this planet is hard to do for any one person, but if you make a difference in anyone else’s life, yours has meaning.”
Paisley is very passionate about his dedication to Live Beyond … Thirst, which he says can help hundreds of families who would not otherwise have access to any clean drinking water.
“We have the means in Nashville to fix that entire region as far as water goes and not even feel it,” Paisley notes. “Nashville is a very giving place and these are good people. If [Nashville] just knew about [the dire circumstances] and could just see it, they’d be like, ‘We’re going to take this and we’re going to make it better.’”
A portion of each ticket sold on Paisley’s Beat This Summer tour was donated to the charity. To find out more information, or to make a donation, click here.
