Brad Paisley To Jam With Fan That Posted YouTube Tribute
. (Radio.com) Have you ever heard of a guitar player named Blaze? We hadn't either. But after Blaze posted his video tribute to Brad Paisley--titled, appropriately, "Brad Paisley"--he has caught our attention.
And he's also caught the attention of Paisley himself. A young guitar whiz based in Las Vegas, Blaze got his first guitar at age 5 and started playing professional at 12.
He is described on his website as "a classic perfectionist" with with "jaw dropping" proficiency on the fretboard--keep in mind this is his own promotional copy talking, though if you check out his music, you'll see there is more than a ring of truth to those words. The guy is a substantial shredder.
His bio goes on to say that, while he's been a KISS fan since he was a kid, it was the guitar playing of country superstar Paisley that grabbed his attention more recently.
"One day I was flippin' around on the car stereo/And some cat was just tearin' it up on country radio," Blaze sings in his song "Brad Paisley." He goes on to say how Paisley has is now a favorite, while his "headbanger friends" think he's "crazy."
The good-natured video has Blaze singing and shredding in various Las Vegas locations, alongside showgirls, tourists and other local characters--including a recurring guy in an oversized Paisley mask. The lyrics tell about how he came to dig country music, and what he'd do to land a chance to jam with the "Perfect Storm" singer--including mowing his lawn. Read more here.
