Brad Paisley is more than an award-winning country singer/songwriter. He’s now an author. Co-writing the book “Diary of a Player,” with David Wild, one of Rolling Stone’s contributing editors, who is also an Emmy nominated television writer and producer. The book will be published by Simon and Schuster, and is set to be on book store shelves on Nov. 1.
In an Associated Press video on YouTube video, Brad had this to say about his first book: “The book we’re working on is sort of a coffee-table book about the guitar. And about how the guitar can impact a life. I’m living proof that every little thing you do can be influenced by a musical instrument. If you learn to play an instrument it can take you so many places. I can’t imagine the kind of life I would have if I never learned to play an instrument.”
The book isn’t about country music. It’s about the instrument, and how it helped him become who he is today. He also uses the book to honor not only country, but blues and rock guitar greats who influenced him.
I’m looking forward to the book. If you’re still trying to figure out what you want for Christmas, this just might make another great addition to put on your Christmas list.
Very, very busy right now – so I need to get ready for work. Hope you all have a good day – I’ll be answering some to you tonight.
