Brad Paisley Pranked With Probing Interview From 8th Grader
Eighth grader Kayla Jayne was shadowing the Tanner in the Morning show on the very day Brad Paisley was making his radio rounds to promote his upcoming album Wheelhouse, coming out April 9. When she found out, she was beside herself with excitement so Tanner and the crew decided maybe she should take the reigns and interview the "Southern Comfort Zone" singer.
Starting off sweetly, she asked a pretty normal, albeit overused, question. "Who taught you how to play guitar," she asked. Answering promptly he admitted his grandfather was a guitar player just for fun so he would watch him play all day before he went to work, revealing his grandfather even gave him his first guitar.
Then things went a little intrusive. "How much money did you make last year before and after taxes," sweet Kayla Jayne asked nonchalantly. "Thanks for that great question," he began with a laugh before answering candidly "before taxes I made about $250 million… after taxes about $35,000." With immense giggling from the morning show in the background, Kayla continued.
Pulling the reigns back, she asked about his favorite color. "In cars I like blue, in things like guitars and amps… I like bright red." This is where things took a hilarious turn.
"Do you think Kenny Chesney has spent way too much time on an island drinking rum?" Without a second thought, Brad answered with "I do, I think that he needs to become a productive member of society and quit embezzling all his money into a Cayman island account and going down there and spending money illegally in the British territories down there." He continued quickly, "I'm just surprised no one has called him out in the middle of one of our campaigns as somebody who has a lot of offshore accounts." Read more and listen to the interview here.
