Brad Paisley Injured In Fall On Stage

Brad Paisley took a nasty spill at his Charleston concert over the weekend.

Brad was singing the last song of the encore, 'Alcohol', on the very last show of his successfull American Saturday Night Tour. He was running on the stage and tripped and fell on his chest. No matter where fans were sitting, they were sure to hear the growl his guitar made when it was sandwiched between him and the ground after the fall.

Based on the video below, you can tell Brad is in a reasonable amount of pain. He went to the ER fearing a broken rib, and after a CT scan, besides being "very very bruised", he's going to be fine.
Brad stayed very active on his Twitter account during the ordeal, posting hospital pics, even offering to bring a fan backstage to meet him, if someone posted it on youtube. As TMZ put it, Ask and ye shall receive. The video is all over the net, including below. Here are some of the updates on Brad's Twitter throughout the night:

  • If ur wondering,it was the last song&last night of the tour&I was running fast on stage,tripped.really did think I broke a rib or something.

  • Allright, whoever posts the YouTube footage of it gets a meet and greet. I have got to see it. I hit hard. And I mean freaking hard.

  • And here, consulting the doctors. They said I was a very brave boy.

  • ​Here's the fine staff and myself in the ER of M U S C hospital.

  • Thx4 prayers,after my fall,I was just discharged from the hospital.Just very very bruised. Nothing broken, had a ct scan all is okay!

March 2, Read Across America Day- Adam School, Santa Maria, Ca

Today is March 2 which is not only the 106th birthday of Dr. Suess, but its Read Across America Day.
I got to hang out with the kids in two classes at Adam School in Santa Maria (I know, great name for a school huh?).

I read a book on LA Dodger legend Sandy Kaufax to the 6th graders in Mrs. Snyder's class, and the classic Dr. Suess book, Green Eggs And Ham to Ms. Sylva's first graders.
I want to say a special thank you to 10 year old Danny. He is a 5th grader at Adam School, and I was told he was my chaperone. My mom would have gotten a kick how a 10 yr old was ordered to chaperone me around; too perfect. But he helped me around the campus, and told me what I needed to do to make sure "the kids liked me". He is a real cool kid, and I am glad I got the opportunity to meet him.

Thanks to all the staff and students at Adam School who were very welcoming and let me celebrate a day I probably wouldn't have on my own, Read Across America Day! I'm glad I did.

A Music City source of mine forwarded me video from an industry Christmas party where Taylor Swift and Mallory Hope sing a karoake version of Miranda Lambert's, "Gun Powder and Lead". Enjoy.

Have you seen this man?....In your dreams?

Have you dreamt of this man?

Saw this story on the news this past weekend, and it was kind of interesting...

Here's the history behind it, and you can check it all out at

Not long ago in New York, the patient of a well-known psychiatrist draws the face of a man that has been repeatedly appearing in her dreams. In more than one occasion that man has given her advice on her private life. The woman swears she has never met the man in her life.

That portrait lies forgotten on the psychiatrist's desk for a few days until one day another patient recognizes that face and says that the man has often visited him in his dreams. He also claims he has never seen that man in his waking life.

The psychiatrist decides to send the portrait to some of his colleagues that have patients with recurrent dreams. Within a few months, four patients recognize the man as a frequent presence in their own dreams. All the patients refer to him as THIS MAN.

From then until today, at least 2000 people have claimed they have seen this man in their dreams, in many cities all over the world: Los Angeles, Berlin, Sao Paulo, Tehran, Beijing, Rome, Barcelona, Stockholm, Paris, New Dehli, Moskow etc.

I even talked to a girl who swears she said this guy made her a Denver Omelette in a dream she has about a month ago.

Lady finds Reindeer Pork Chop

I must admit, I'm pretty impressed.

A woman named Sue Church stopped by her local Fox affiliate to show them a pork chop that slightly, scratch that, TOTALLY looked like Rudolph, the red nosed reindeer.

Must have been a slow news day!

Brooks and Dunn @ The Chumash!

Brooks and Dunn spent what very well may be their last night playing the Chumash Casino Resort doing all their #1's...and then some, which is also the title of their brand new greatest hit album.
Kix and Ronnie put on a great show despite having numerous vocal issues through out the night, some of which they even made open jokes about. Probably the song most affected by these noticeable vocal issues was the song, 'Believe', which happens to be probably my favorite song from the duo. One literally every big note, Ronnie would pull the mic away from his mouth, sometimes with his arm extended all the way. You could tell he was feeling it out, and a couple times thought he may of had the note under control, brought the mic back to him, and you would hear a note that you think should be coming from someone from the first weeks of the American Idol auditions. You know the auditions where the people are just horrible. I really felt bad for the guy. I mean here is Ronnie Dunn; thought by most to have the GREATEST male voice in country music, and he was struggling bad, atleast on that song. Some of the other hits that weren't as vocally demanding were not as bad, and to be fair to Ronnie, the couple songs that Kix normally does on his own, didnt sound so hot either. And despite some obvious vocal numances, don't get me wrong, the show was great!
I have seen B&D a few times, and one of my favorite parts, and one the reasons they are one of my favorite shows to catch is the military tribute they have been known to do during their hit, "Only In America". The have members from the different military branches march out during the chorus, and the crowd goes nuts. The mixture of the song, then these service men/women marching out, not so much as even cracking a smile, or making eye contact with anyone, even B&D. Through the fast paced song, they slowly salute, then make their way off stage. I took some video of it yesterday from my Blackberry, so I invite you to check it out below. I will warn you though, the crowd is going to flippin crazy loud, you can barely hear the song being sung and played in the background. Enjoy.
Even though the guys have one final farewell tour they are calling 'The Last Rodeo' tour slated for 2010, it being a farewell tour to arguably the biggest duo in country music history, it might not find its way back to a venue like the Chumash for obvious reasons, mainly capacity. Oh and yea, it be nice to be able to have a beer there as well.
