So, Brad Paisley walks into a Swedish bar… nope, this is not the start of a joke but a real-life instance that happened just this weekend.
Patrons grabbing a beer and a bite at O'Connell's pub before Paisley's show in Stockholm, Sweden were in for a real surprise when the country titan walked in the bar to hang out with fans before the gig.
Before he took the stage on Sunday (October 6), the “My Miracle” singer swung by O'Connell's to check out a local band, Roscoe Parker. “Here we are, this is the pre-party… [at] O'Connell's, downtown… Old Town Stockholm,” he said in an Instagram video where he showed off the packed bar full of people (who were naturally filming him and taking photos). He also posted a short video of the band playing a song and said they sounded great.
The band also posted a black and white photo of Paisley snapping a photo during their set.
The 46-year-old may currently be on tour overseas but he's also gearing up to star and executively produce a brand new Amazon show, Fish Out of Water. In addition to the new show, the country singer is also set to host an hour-long ABC primetime special, Brad Paisley Thinks He's Special. The show will, of course, include performances along with a host of surprises and appearances by Kelsea Ballerini, Carrie Underwood and more!
On top of that great news, his free grocery store was recently awarded a huge $1.5 million grant to help boost their efforts to help lower-income families in Tennessee and is set to open early next year.
