While most of us were grilling up hot dogs or toasting to the beginning of summer, Brad Paisley was aboard Air Force One en route to Afghanistan with President Obama to play a secret show for U.S. troops stationed there.
“I’ve never felt that kind of emotion about something.” Brad says, talking to America’s Morning Show’s Blair Garner. He also opened up about all aspects of his top secret trip, from security warnings to dishing on the President’s sense of humor to the food served on Air Force One.
“I had to (keep the trip secret), it was complete and total national security to keep it quiet,” Brad admits. “You get over there, and no one can know what’s coming in, we’re talking about a war zone.”
Paisley describes the entire event as “mind blowing” and tweeted some incredible photos from his trip. (See below)
