Brad Paisley to Host Variety Special With Jonas Brothers, Hootie, Tim McGraw & More
Who knew Brad Paisley dreamed of being Bob Hope? MusicRow reports that the country star will soon star in his own ABC primetime special titled Brad Paisley Thinks He’s Special. The one-hour program’s eclectic lineup will include Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, the Jonas Brothers, Kelsea Ballerini, retired NFL star Peyton Manning, Hootie and the Blowfish, and Bachelor host Chris Harrison.
The network says the program, which will be taped at Nashville’s iconic War Memorial Auditorium, will feature “a combination of Paisley’s signature humor, unexpected surprises, heartfelt field pieces and rousing musical performances.” Meanwhile, Paisley jokingly added in a statement, “Wait, I thought it was called the Brad Paisley Special. Who added the Thinks He’s? Oh well, I’m still psyched.” Brad Paisley Thinks He’s Special will premiere later this season.
