Background and Age

Brad Douglas Paisley was born on October 28, 1972, in Glen Dale, West Virginia. Paisley's enthusiasm for music started at age 8, when his grandfather gave him his first guitar. By the age of 12, the youthful musician was singing in chapel and at gatherings and playing in his first band, for which he wrote his very own material. Paisley eventually verified a normal spot on Jamboree USA, a mainstream music radio show. Paisley was so prevalent with audience members that he was welcome to join the program as a full-time musician, opening for acts, for example, The Judds and Roy Clark.

Following two years at West Virginia's West Liberty State College, Paisley moved to Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee. At Belmont, Paisley studied under the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers scholarship and met Frank Rogers and Kelley Lovelace, both of whom would help Paisley later in his career. Seven days after graduation, Paisley signed with EMI Records as a songwriter. His first achievement accompanied a hit wrote in 1996 for David Kersh, called "Another You."

Married, Wife and Kids

Paisley met actress Kimberly Williams in 2001, in the wake of writing a tune with verses about meeting her. He at that point made a video to go with the single, and Williams consented to appear. The couple married in 2003, and gave birth to their first kid, a child named William Huckleberry, in 2007. On April 17, 2009, they had a subsequent child, Jasper Warren Paisley.

Career and Net Worth

Paisley made his debut presentation as an independent artist subsequent to signing with Arista. He released his first collection, Who Needs Pictures, in 1999. The record produced the No. 1 hit "He Didn't Have to Be," trailed by the chart-beating single, "We Danced." The collection sold more than 1 million copies and launched Paisley to national popularity. The following year, the Academy of Country Music named Paisley the Best New Male Vocalist, and the Country Music Association conceded him the lofty Horizon Award.

In December 2019, Brad Paisley kicked a Tuesday night off with his first variety special, a romping frolic through comedy, melody and the wild avenues of Nashville. The hour-long show was trailed by two stretches of seasonal joy and kindness of the constantly happy CMA Country Christmas special.
