Brad Paisley Expands Role With Pixar

Posted on: June 16th, 2014 by Dana

Brad Paisley wrote a new song in honor of his father, Doug, who was a fireman, for the new Disney movie “Planes: Fire & Rescue”, which is a follow-up to 2013′s “Planes.”

The song is called “All In,” and highlights the bravery and sacrifice made by firefighters. Besdies the song, Brad has a voice role in the movie. He tells USA Today, “My earliest memories are on these fire trucks. There are more photographs of me from age 5 to 10 on these fire engines than there are photographs of me on birthdays.”

Brad even thought that he might be a firefighter one day, like his dad, “But I took the music path and got really busy. It just wasn’t in the cards for me. The best hopes are my kids, probably.”

Among the song’s lyrics: “Without hesitation in the face of fear and doubt/There’s smoke and flames and everybody needs out/They’re all in.”

Brad sings another song in the movie, which is due out July 18 and will play the role of a heartbroken pickup truck named “Bubba” who has one line in the movie. This isn’t their first time Brad’s teamed up with the Pixar team, singing songs for “Cars” and “Cars 2″.

Chris Young In Cast For 6 Weeks

Posted on: June 10th, 2014 by Dana

Chris Young’s kitchen accident has turned into quite the fiasco for him. What was thought to have been a bad but managable cut has resulted in two surgeries to repair tendons and now several weeks in a cast and rehab.

His mom, Becky Harris says on her Facebook page, his fingers are “looking good color wise,” and, “He will be in a soft cast for another two weeks, then in a hard cast for the next 4 after that.”

She also added that she’s not sure about the stitches but, “there are a LOT of them. His surgeon did a great job on the second surgery, and obviously we can’t see the repair work due to the cast.”

Chris updated his page with a picture last night…

Chris will play Tour For the Troops aboard NAS Pensacola on July 9 with Josh Thompson.
