Brad Fan Jumps Opry Stage
Brad Paisley got an unexpected onstage guest as he performed on the tribute show for Grand Ole Opry member Little Jimmy Dickens at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Nov.1.
As Brad was performing a guitar solo during “Waitin’ on a Woman,” a female fan pulled herself up onto the stage and proceeded to give Brad a hug while he continued to play. She tried to give him a small gift but Brad simply turned around and had her place the item in his back pocket. After she left the stage and the song was completed, Brad stopped the band and explained to the nationwide Opry radio audience what had just happened. “If that guitar solo sounded funny at the end,” Brad said playfully, “it’s because I was being attacked by a beautiful young woman who jumped up on the stage and accosted me . . . and stuck a Christmas ornament in my pocket that says, ‘I love you Brad.&mbsp;Thanks for making my 18th birthday special. Love, Kim.’ I can’t say her last name because she’s going to be prosecuted for this, probably,” Brad joked. Little Jimmy was celebrating his 60th anniversary as a Grand Ole Opry member.
