Brad Paisley Has Fourth Fun at the White House

“Thank you Mr. President, First Lady, and all the branches of the military for the best 4th,” he tweets.

Brad Paisley had a pretty amazing gig: He played for President Obama and his family, and more than 1,200 military members and their relatives on the South Lawn of the White House.

Brad struck a sincere note on his Twitter page: "Thank you Mr. President, First Lady, and all the branches of military for the best 4th of July I've ever had."

And Brad couldn't resist having a little fun with the fact that he played one of the best-known venues in the world.

"Haven't sung in someone's back yard in a while," he said, posting a pic of him playing on the South Lawn.

Brad captioned another pic: "Um, yes, police? The big house up the street is having a really loud party. On Pennsylvania Avenue."

And check this out: President Obama gave Brad a shout-out in a pre-concert speech, and we think the commander in chief may have let a little twang slip into his speech at the end of that sentence.

"And we've got Brad Paisley and his band in the house for a little country," the president said in pre-concert remarks.
