Brad Paisley Expands Role With Pixar
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″.
