OFFSTAGE: Brad Paisley Busy Photoshopping Carrie Underwood

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Here I thought Brad Paisley was being so sweet. He posted this adorable little video clip of him and Elmo doing a sample of the Sesame Street theme song with Elmo on vocals and Paisley on guitar. He even scratches Elmo’s furry red head at the end. “Occupying Sesame Street,” he tweeted. But then, right after that, he posted this extremely altered, very robust photo of Carrie Underwood’s face , with a few extra chins nicely Photoshopped in, saying, “Hadn’t seen Gooberwood in a while, til today. She looks … uh … healthy.” I wonder what she will do to get Paisley back. Please make your best practical joke suggestions in the comment section below. Hopefully, Paisley is the kind of guy who can dish it out and also take it.
