Brad Paisley Casts Acting Legend in Latest Video
In one of those magical pairings, Brad Paisley has cast Andy Griffith in his video for 'Waitin' on a Woman.' Paisley, whose 11th No. 1 hit, 'I'm Still a Guy' currently tops the charts, and the legendary actor met up for the video shoot at an outlet mall in Pea Island, N.C. on May 27. Griffith plays the role of the older, experienced man who explains to the young-un that a woman is worth waiting for.
"One of the greatest moments in my career was getting to shoot this video with Andy Griffith and getting to know him," says Paisley. "I'll cherish this video and opportunity to become friends with this wonderful and influential man for the rest of my life."
"'Waitin' on a Woman' is one of the most important songs I've recorded," he adds. "It's a masterpiece written by Wynn Varble and Don Sampson, and the video demanded excellence and art to match the composition. Andy was my No. 1 choice for the video -- he is the perfect person that embodies wisdom, years, and personality of the character in the video."
Director Jim Shea -- who also shot Paisley's award winning 'When I Get Where I'm Going' video, featuring Dolly Parton -- shot the two sitting on a bench outside a local pizza parlor, Stone Oven Pizza, owned by two brothers, Jeff and Len Gaskill. "This is an opportunity of a lifetime," Jeff Gaskill told The Outer Banks Sentinel. "It's Like we won the lottery," Len Gaskill added.
