Brad Paisley Blogs About White House Performance

Brad Paisley has written an exclusive blog entry for CNN.com about his performance at the White House on Tuesday (July 21) as part of the White House Music Series hosted by first lady Michelle Obama. Paisley recalled choking up on “Welcome to the Future” — a song about progress and diversity — earlier in the afternoon and later singing it to President Obama, who was sitting 10 feet away from Paisley. “Being able to deliver that message personally to one of the people who ushered in this new era is really one of the most completely, artistically satisfying moments I’ve ever had,” Paisley wrote.
