Paisley, SHeDAISY Stuck on Troubled Flight

Brad Paisley and two members of SHeDAISY were among 105 passengers stuck on an American Airlines plane for four hours Sunday evening (May 5) as it circled Nashville International Airport. The plane’s pilots wanted to burn most of its 23,000 gallons of fuel in order to land safely, airport spokeswoman Allison McAfee told The Tennessean. No one on board was hurt. Other passengers included Paisley’s girlfriend, actress Kimberly Williams, and Lyric Street Records president Randy Goodman. “People were as calm as could be, but there were a few people crying,” Paisley told The Tennessean. “The actual landing was one of the smoothest I’ve ever had. You’d never know anything was wrong – except your head was tucked between your legs.” 05/06/02
