Brad Paisley Talks New Song, Dyeing His Wife’s Hair During Quarantine, and His Free Grocery Store in Nashville
Country superstar Brad Paisley is keeping busy in quarantine. He opened up to “Extra's” Renee Bargh about dropping a new song, dyeing his wife's hair, and helping people through the coronavirus with his free grocery stores.
His new song, “No I In Beer,” is perfect for times like these. He told Renee, “It's actually from 2018 and I always got a great reaction when I would sing it at concerts… The original first line was' there's a bunch of people coming over…' so that doesn't work… Two years ago, it would have been just a drinking song like, 'Yeah, this is fun,' Now, it's like a rally cry or something.”
He is spending time jamming out with his other famous neighbors. Brad shared a video on Instagram of himself and others, including hit songwriter Jon Randall, playing while practicing social distancing. “My neighbor is Jon Randall who… wrote the song 'Whiskey Lullaby of Mine'… he just texted that day and said, 'Come down here…' and we'll just play and stay six feet apart. It was pretty neat.”
So was coloring his wife Kimberly Williams' hair! He said, “She had me color her hair… and I'm probably going to get more work out of this.”

He did all of this while working to help those in need with his free supermarket The Store in Nashville. Paisley said, “The idea is it's a grocery store for someone who… falls on hard times… They get to come in and do their shopping… We ring up, but the difference is they never give us any money… and then we help them get back up on their feet.” Due to COVID-19, the store is now doing pickups and drop-offs.
During the pandemic, The Store is also helping the elderly, so they don't need to leave the house. “We've already changed our model to where we're delivering food to the elderly," Brad said. "They don't even have to be low-income; if they're 80-something years old, they're getting food from us.”
