Brad Paisley Surprises U.S. Troops In Afghanistan

(Radio.com) Brad Paisley didn't just spend his Memorial Day weekend cooking hot dogs at a neighborhood barbecue. The country superstar instead traveled halfway around the world to perform for U.S. troops.

And he made the journey on Air Force One accompanying the president and some of his advisers. Paisley's performance took place at Bagram Airfield, the main U.S. base in Afghanistan, in front of 3,000 members of the U.S. military. It was "the honor of my life," Paisley told the troops from the stage.

Paisley and the president boarded Air Force One Saturday evening for the overnight flight to Bagram Airfield, which is north of Kabul, the country's capital. The trip remained a surprise up until they landed. more on this story
