Atlantic Records’ artist Brett Eldredge could not resist showing his appreciation to Brad Paisley for having him on this summer’s H2O II: Wetter & Wilder tour with a good old fashioned prank. At a recent show in Columbus, OH, Eldredge had Paisley’s Chevy Corvette moved, and parked a yellow, child-sized Camaro donning a “Paisley” license plate in its place. Much to Paisley’s surprise, when he came off the bus to jump in his wheels, he found the toy car. Known for his onstage pranks, Paisley congratulated Eldredge with a handshake on a job well done.
