Brad Paisley: The Birthday Boy
Brad Paisley was born on October 28, 1972, at Glen Dale, West Virginia. His parents are Douglas Edward “Doug” Paisley and Sandra Jean “Sandy” Paisley. He started to love country music because of his grandfather, Warren Jarvis, who gave him his first guitar. He also taught Paisley to play guitar at the age of 8.
Paisley started singing at their church. Thus, people wanted him to play the guitar instead of the piano. People who heard him singing got really amazed with his vocals, they also insisted and said,
“Forget the choir, let’s just have Brad Paisley do the whole thing”
After that, he never had to ask for a gig until he left Glen Dale. He recalled,
“Pretty soon, I was performing at every Christmas party and Mother’s Day event. The neat thing about a small town is that when you want to be an artist, by golly, they’ll make you one.”
At the age of 13, he penned his first song, “Born on Christmas Day” which also appeared on his album Brad Paisley Christmas. Years later, his debut as a singer was with the label Artista Nashville with the song “Who Needs Pictures.”
