Exclusive Preview: Brad Paisley Brings Country to White House
Brad Paisley, Charley Pride and Alison Krauss & Union Station played the concert of a lifetime last month, serenading the President, First Lady and a room full of kids at the White House. GAC's cameras were there to capture the special event for 'Country at the White House,' a special show airing this Saturday, Aug. 15 at 9:00 PM ET. GAC has teamed with The Boot to bring you this sneak preview of the show. Watch below as Brad dedicates his touching song, 'Welcome to the Future,' to President Obama.
"It's touched countless lives; it's influenced all genres of music," President Obama said of country music in his welcoming remarks. "It's helped make the American people more hopeful."
The special show, part of the White House Music series founded by First Lady Michelle Obama, was held in the historic East Room at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. More than 120 middle and high school students from across the country attended with the First Family. GAC's 'Country at the White House' will follow a group of those kids as they make their way from Nashville to the nation's capitol for this once-in-a-lifetime trip. The show will also include full performances from Brad, Charley and Alison.
