I do want to win real damn bad. I thought there after season 4 – I had won three seasons in a row – we thought that I had them all from there on out. And then it was OK with me that Adam won… that was his last one by the way! I don’t know if you read the script or not, but that’s how it’s gonna be.”

He also talked about new judge Pharrell Williams saying, “Pharrell has talked some people of the ledge several times during these blind auditions. I mean, people who are upset, they didn’t make it – he knows the exact right thing to say to people to make them feel. People will walk off that stage, not even having made the show, and feeling like they won.”

The home is log cabin style and sits on 32 acres along a river, about an hour south of Nashville. And, he has Jason Aldean as a neighbor.

Tim McGraw is speaking out about the slap hear around country music last week when a video of him supposedly hitting a fan in the face during a concert went viral.

TMZ reports Tim spoke to media in Toronto about the incident saying, “It happened in a split second, it was pure instinctive reaction, I think you just got to move on.” Adding, “Nobody feels good about it, but there’s nothing that could be done about it.”

TMZ points out that Tim didn’t address the sequence of events in the video which show him shake the woman’s hand off his pants, pausing and then following up with the swing.

Apparently, it doesn’t matter. No charges or reports were filed and according to TMZ, as far as the law is concerned, police are on Tim’s side.

Brad Speaks Up About Concert Incident

Posted on: July 18th, 2014 by Chris

Brad Paisley is speaking up about the incident that had a woman removed from his show in San Diego last week and he says he agrees with the way the police handled the situation.

The woman, Megan Christopherson, was in the pit area of the July 10 show breastfeeding her 4-month-old child when police approached her and asked her to sit in seats they’d designated for her, or to leave. She chose to leave. Police say they were simply worried about the safety of her child being so close to loud speakers.

When speaking with a radio station in California today (KFRG) Brad said the police did the right thing.

“It seemed to me…it sure seemed that she did the absolute wrong thing.”

Not long after the incident Megan took to YouTube and posted a video claiming she was thrown out of the show because she was breastfeeding, which goes against the police reports and statements from other concert goers.

Brad admits he didn’t see the incident as he was performing during it and stresses he had “nothing to do with [it],” and while none of his people were involved, he did enough research to reach his own conclusion. “From what I was told by the authorities, according to the police it had nothing to do with breastfeeding at all,” he says adamantly, adding, “Nothing.”

A father himself, he understands their concern.

“There’s no way I would take a 6-month-old — or however old the baby is — into the pit at one of my concerts. When my kids go to concerts — and believe it or not, they were there at that one, and they rarely go — they look like Princess Leia, they have these huge earphones. And they’re back at the soundboard. Because even back there it’s 100 decibels.”

He believes that woman is at fault and hopes it will be a learning experience for her.

“I wish she would just learn from this as opposed to pretending to be a victim.”
