Brad feels his song’s impact

Brad Paisley is finally realizing the power of his No. 1 hit, “When I Get Where I’m Going.” Brad performed the emotional song at the funeral of his friend and mentor Buck Owens, Sunday, April 2, in Bakersfield, Calif. “It was a very difficult thing,” Brad recalled, prior to a music industry function celebrating the song’s success. “You never feel the impact of those words until you see the casket right there. I could not think about it as I sang it. You just have to put on your game face and pretend you’re onstage.” Brad makes a return visit to Bakersfield May 6 to headline a concert with Sara Evans and Josh Turner. It was a scheduled stop on his tour, but Brad suggested that a tribute to Buck might be included in the show.
