NASHVILLE, Tenn. - (April 18, 2017) – The show that made country music famous rolled out another surprise performance during Friday night’s Grand Ole Opry. Following surprise performances last week by Blake Shelton and the Oak Ridge Boys on Tuesday night’s Opry, superstar member Brad Paisley stopped by unannounced to celebrate the release of his new album LOVE AND WAR with his Opry family. Introduced by his co-writer friend and Opry legend Bill Anderson, Paisley explained to the audience that he and Anderson had penned a new song called “Dying To See Her” for Paisley’s new album which will be released April 21. The two performed the tune together, and Paisley added a sampling of his hits including his recent No. 1 from the album, “Today.”
