Brad Paisley Pays Tribute to His ‘Mona Lisa’ During 2013 CMA Awards Performance [Video]

Brad Paisley is a world-famous country musician, but he’s a nobody compared to his wife. That’s the message behind ‘The Mona Lisa,’ the song Paisley played during the 2013 CMA Awards.

For his performance, show co-host Paisley ditched the fancy suits for a t-shirt with an image of the Mona Lisa, which should have been the first clue about which song he was about to sing. Paisley got the crowd involved with some early call-and-response chants, then began singing, “There are men who make history / There are men who change the world / And there are men like me / That simply find the right girl.

Paisley continued in self-deprecating fashion, singing, “I feel like the frame that gets to hold the Mona Lisa.”

He ventured out into the crowd during his guitar solo and finished the song from a small stage in the back of the arena.

‘The Mona Lisa’ is a track from ‘Wheelhouse,’ Paisley’s most recent album.

In addition to performing, Paisley co-hosted the 2013 CMAs with Carrie Underwood.
