There wasn't a time when I was just absolutely It was like something clicked. I was going to be a singer. But I knew the kind of singer one when I saw Steve Warner roll through Wheeling and he was a friend of my road manager that is now my roommate at the time. I didn't have a road manager when I was 10, but He was friends with Steve and introduced me and I got to go see him play and I saw this guy get up who sang and played and goofed around on the stage. He was playing all the leads. He's an incredible guitar player. And I thought, Oh, you can sing and do the solo, you know, because there weren't a lot of that going around in any kind of music at that point, Clapton and and and a few others, but that's what I said. That's what I want to be. I want to be the guy who plays the solos and sings the songs and then writes the song. Keep listening to I Heart Radio for more Brad Paisley and all your favorite artists.
