Born in West Virginia, country music singer-songwriter Brad Paisley was heavily influenced by his maternal grandfather, who taught him how to play the guitar at 8-years-old. Since then, his love of music directed his path in life. He went on to pursue his passion and attended school at Nashville’s Belmont University. In 1999, armed with a Bachelor’s degree in music business, he took his first job at EMI Music Publishing and the rest is history. Paisley has released 10 studio albums and earned countless awards—from Grammys to American Music Awards. His tenth studio album, Wheelhouse, debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and sold over 100,000 copies in its first week. Paisley makes a stop in Omaha this Thursday.
