Brad Paisley to Perform at Annual White House July 4 Bash

Brad’s second performance at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.—like the first—will be streamed live.

Yes, it's cool that Josh Turner is included in this year's annual PBS Fourth of July celebration, but Brad Paisley has one-upped him.

Brad Paisley will play for President Obama for the second time in four years on July 4, the sole performer for the annual White House Salute to the Military USO concert on the South Lawn, the USO announced.

And the concert—starting at 8:10 p.m. ET—will be streamed live on whitehouse.gov, so you can check it out, too.

The president and the first lady will be joined by 1,200 troops and military family members for the show.

In years past, performers included Jimmy Fallon, Foo Fighters, Cedric the Entertainer, Train and The Killers.

This is Brad's second time performing at the White House. He was part of a night of country music there back in 2009.

Since then, President Obama has quoted the country singer publicly at least once, and Brad gave the president a nod in his song "Welcome to the Future."
