Last Tuesday night July 21, Brad Paisley was one of the performers at the Country installment of the White House’s music series. He played for the President, First Lady and family, members of Congress, and students from around the country, including many from Nashville. Also performing at the event were Alison Krauss and Union Station, and Charley Pride. And by the way, that looks like Country Music Hall of Fame boss Kyle Young on the front row. The Hall provided educational content for the program, and the CMA sponsored the trips of 40 local students.
