Brad Paisley Loses a Bet with Ludacris

The 2014 Billboard Music Awards Press Room in Las Vegas

ABC’s Rising Star judges Brad Paisley and Ludacris, recently made a wager on something, and Paisley was a big loser.  While what exactly they were betting on, was not made clear, Paisley was forced to pony up and pay for a $2,100 bottle of Louis XIII cognac for Ludacris when he lost.

“Don’t make bets with rappers,” Paisley warned. “They’re very expensive.”

Apparently if Ludacris had been the loser, he was going to be forced to wear Paisley’s cowboy had on the show- which seems like a much cheaper option than buying the guy a very pricey drink.

Brad Paisley: New American Idol Judge?

Brad Paisley might be the next celebrity on the American Idol judges panel!

The popular series is seriously considering country star Paisley for one of the recently (and unceremoniously) vacated chairs on its judging panel. Though it isn’t where Idol usually goes in terms of recruiting judges, Paisley makes a lot of sense: the show’s biggest star, Carrie Underwood, is a country singer and some of the show’s recent winners (Scotty McCreery and runner-up Lauren Alana, to be more specific) are also in the country genre.

Paisley has also performed on Idol, and has a relationship with both Underwood and McCreery. Paisley recorded the song Remind me with Underwood and is going to tour with McCreery later this year.  Other shows are going country, too: NBC’s The Voice had country star Blake Shelton, as a mentor and that worked out pretty well for them, in my humble opinion.

What will new judge Mariah Carey say?!

Brad Paisley Won’t Campaign for Entertainer of the Year

Safe to say Brad Paisley won’t be ditching his country career for politics anytime soon.

“I’m uncomfortable campaigning,” the singer-songwriter – and nominee for the ACM’s Entertainer of the Year award – said in Franklin, Tenn., at a party this week in honor of his two No. 1 songs, “Welcome to the Future” and “American Saturday Night.”

“Honestly, I don’t like that part of it. I understand that people love to get involved and it’s cool that they can, but vote for who you want.”

Paisley, 37, is actually one of eight country artists in the running for the top honor at this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards, airing Sunday, April 18, on CBS at 8 p.m./7 p.m. Central, with Reba McIntire as host.

The award – the ACM’s top honor – is selected by fans via an online ballot, with voting to begin April 1.

Paisley’s competition includes last year’s winner Carrie Underwood, along with Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Toby Keith, George Strait, Zac Brown Band and four-time winner Kenny Chesney.

Brad Paisley had a painful start in music


Brad Paisley hasn’t always been a music success story – one of his first live performances left him bruised and humiliated.

The singer thought he’d scored a big break when he was asked to sing the national anthem before an ice hockey game in his native West Virginia – but the performance didn’t go according to plan.

Paisley reveals, “Before I had a record deal, I was in West Virginia and they asked me to sing the national anthem at a minor league hockey game. They had the mic in the middle of the ice. I had to go out in the dark and then they were going to put the spotlight on me. When I walked out, I slipped, and I’m on my butt and then the spotlight hit me, looking like a crime scene.”
