BRAD'S OPRY INDUCTION

Brad Paisley was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry on Feb. 17 by Opry member and long-time friend and mentor Steve Wariner. Brad made his debut on the hallowed Opry stage May 28, 1999, and has played the Opry 43 times since. For his induction, Paisley wore a canary yellow Nudie suit jacket on loan from his friend Buck Owens. If the jacket looks familiar, it's because Buck wore it for the cover of his Live From Carnegie Hall album -- not to mention that it's Buck's favorite jacket!

After reading a letter of congratulations from Opry member George Jones, Steve congratulated Brad on his induction, saying, "Brad respects where we (country music) came from, the heritage. We are in good hands with this guy."

"I don't feel worthy but I hope to earn it," said Brad. "I'll spend my career making this place proud they did this. It means the world to me that my friend Steve Wariner was part of it."

During his induction Paisley performed "Two People Fell in Love", the debut single from his upcoming album, Part II, to be released May 29.
