Brad Paisleynbsp;was given his first Sears Danelectro guitar by his grandfather when he was only eight years old. This guitar changed the whole direction of his life. By the age of twelve, Brad had already written his first song, "Born on Christmas Day." At thirteen his growing talent was spotted and he began opening public performances by major country stars such as The Judds, Ricky Skaggs, and even George Jones at the Capital Music Hall in Wheeling, West Virginia. Today, Brad is an acclaimed music superstar artist still in his thirties and the very blessed husband to the lovely and talented actress Kimberly Williams Paisley (whom Brad fell for the moment he saw her onscreen in Father of… the Bride), as well as the father of two beautiful sons, Huck and Jasper.
