Brad Paisley Bringing High School Band to CMA Awards

Along with the array of major country stars, the upcoming CMA Awards show will feature a high school marching band from Brentwood, Tenn., a suburb of Nashville. The musicians from Brentwood High School, who had already joined Brad Paisley in recording “Online,” a hit single from his 5th Gear album, will reprise their work when he performs the song live on the awards show. “I’m really honored to give the band a chance to play on national TV,” Paisley said. “They did a great job on the record, and I know they will do a great job at the awards.” The awards show airs live on ABC on Nov. 7.
