Brad Paisley is currently in Australia playing his first ever headline shows.
Brad Paisley closed the Deni Ute Muster on Saturday, October 1 in Deniliquin, NSW with a set that was full of surprises.
As well as looking through the phone of a woman in the front row, revealing a photo of a well-endowed horse, amongst others, he joked, “I mean, holy crap! Why is that on there? I would say ‘he’s hung like a horse’, but he is. Why are you taking pictures of your horse’s junk? I’m not even gonna get into the things you guys are into down here.”
Paisley also shocked the crowd when he gifted a white electric guitar to one lucky young fan.
Spotting a sign in the audience, Paisley said, “Oh, look at that! That [sign] says, ‘Hey Brad, my parent’s named me Paisley after you',” adding, “That is such a better name than Shelton.”
“I hope I never do anything to make you change it to Chesney or something,” he later remarked as he began to play This Is Country Music on the guitar he later delivered to the young girl.

“Learn how to play it, Paisley. With a name like Paisley, I hope you get good at [playing guitar], write songs about your boyfriend’s when they break up with you and you’ll be a billionaire like Taylor Swift,” he joked. “Next time I’m down here, I’m opening for Paisley.”
Paisley is currently on tour in Australia playing his first ever headline shows, supported by Morgan Evans and MacKenzie Porter.
