Brad Paisley

Born and raised in the heart of West Virginia, Brad Paisley knew early on that his future was in country music. After 8-year-old Paisley received his first guitar from his grandfather for Christmas, he went on to perform all over his home state for several years, before relocating to Nashville, Tenn., to attend Belmont University. His debut album, 1999′s ‘Who Needs Pictures,’ went platinum and spawned two No. 1 singles. Paisley began dating actress Kimberly Williams, who he first saw on the big screen when she starred in ‘Father of the Bride,’ in 2001; he asked her to appear in the video for his 2002 hit, “I’m Gonna Miss Her,” and they wed in 2003. Known for his great sense of humor, Paisley and Carrie Underwood have co-hosted the CMA Awards every year since 2008. He is also the author of a book, the autobiographical ‘Diary of a Player.’
