Chris Young Gets Ready for Pranks
Chris will be hitting the road with Brad Paisley in May: “I’m scared,” he says.
Brad Paisley has mastered more than playing guitar and recording No. 1 hits. He’s a bona fide practical jokester, having pulled pranks on everyone from Scotty McCreery to The Band Perry while out on tour.
This year, Chris Young will be joining Brad on the road for his Beat This Summer Tour presented by Cracker Barrel Old Country Store. The tour kicks off in St. Louis on May 9 and will hit more than 29 cities.
Now, Chris has mapped out his own strategy to outprank Mr. Jokester himself. “Oh, I’ve got my pranks. I know what I’m doing,” Chris tells Country Weekly. “It’s my first time going on tour with him, and I know I’m gonna get pranked. I know how he is, and I know it will happen."
Brad is notorious for pulling pranks. During last year's Virtual Reality Tour, Brad outfitted a stage walkway with caution tape and orange cones for Scotty McCreery after the American Idol winner had fallen off the stage (and was fortunately not injured) during a previous performance. And on the same tour, Brad had The Band Perry turned into children's TV characters The Doodlebops on the video screen behind them.
Chris wouldn’t give away his master plan, but says he’s prepared for anything. “Brad’s worse than me," he says. "I’m scared. But I’ve already ordered some of the things I need.”
Careful, Brad, you might need to sleep with one eye open!
