Brad Brings the Funny on Comedy Central’s Daily Show

Country star trades lines with comedian Jon Stewart.

Brad Paisley went on Comedy Central's Daily Show to plug his first book, The Diary of a Player, about his guitar heroes.

And the comedy was flowing. Why, host Jon Stewart asked, did Brad write the book?

“We have done such a great job of teaching kids how not to play guitar with [video game] Guitar Hero,” Brad said. “And then on top of that, in this country, we’re doing a fantastic job of not teaching them how not to read as well. So this kills two birds with one stone.”

Jon also referred to Brad's start—at age 12 or 13—on a weekly radio show in his hometown in West Virginia.

“I was cute then,” Brad said. “And my dad used to say—this was always the best advice—‘You don’t have to be good right now, and that’s great. But someday, you’re not gonna be that cute. And you’re gonna have to be pretty good or you’re just gonna talk about the good ol’ days.’”

Well said.
