Brad Paisley is one of country music’s biggest stars.
But he’s also chosen to become very active in left-wing political endeavors in recent years.
And now country music star Brad Paisley is flirting with career suicide after he made one stunning remark about Jill Biden.
In an interview with CNN’s Chris Wallace Paisley – whose hits include 20 number one songs including Mud on the Tires, I’m Still a Guy, Letters to Me, and Old Alabama – discussed his support for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, as well as public appearances with First Lady Jill Biden to promote the controversial COVID vaccine.
Paisley responded by claiming he dove headfirst in cheerleading for the vaccine after speaking with friends of his who were doctors at Vanderbilt University.
But then, Paisley falsely claimed the vaccines were why Americans no longer needed to wear masks, as it has long since been proven that the vaccine does not prevent COVID transmission.
“Well, I mean, look, that’s a very complicated thing,” Paisley claimed. “I have really good friends that are incredible doctors at Vanderbilt, one of my closest friends in the world is a pediatric neurosurgeon. And that’s who I leaned on throughout the, the thing. And that’s why I got so involved in this is his, his studying of this and his explanation for where we would be without it.”
“Based on the data that he was telling me about, and all of the research that I did with him, I felt like it was the right thing to do,” he added. “And, you know, sometimes you do stuff like that, when you believe it. Even if it’s not popular, I think you got to do it. And in that sense, it’s been fascinating though, to watch. And the folks who didn’t get it, it’s like, it’s okay. Those of us who did, we, you know, we did what we did, you did what you did, and here we sit now, and we don’t have to wear that mask anymore. Thankfully.”
Politics is a thorny patch for country music stars to wade into.
The Dixie Chicks essentially torpedoed their own careers after they told a London audience how “ashamed” they were to be from the same state as former President George W. Bush roughly 18 months after September 11, and prior to the Iraq War even beginning.
One of the best-selling country artists of all-time, Garth Brooks, also chose to court controversy by calling Americans who boycotted Bud Light “a-holes” – a remark he later walked back.
The majority of country music fans are Republicans who live in rural America.
And it is probably not wise for Brad Paisley to associate himself too closely with Joe Biden and his regime’s authoritarianism.
