OFFSTAGE: Brad Paisley Visits South Park

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

Stan, Kyle, Eric, Kenny and Brad Paisley? No. That can’t be right. Paisley has not joined the cast of the little bad boys of Comedy Central’s South Park , has he? I cannot picture him even liking the show, let alone having a vocal cameo in it. But he tweeted a couple of animated pictures of himself in the cartoon town, saying, “I can’t believe where I got to hang out this weekend.”

In a radio interview, he admitted what a big fan he is of the dark, mature-audience-only show. A friend of a friend of his got him the chance to visit the studio in California. While he was there, he recorded some background vocals for an upcoming episode.

“I went in and cut a couple voices of little kids. I’m just one of the kids in the background,” Paisley said. “But my name is in the credits, you know? And I’m floored. I can’t believe I got to do that.” I’m not a fan of the show, if you couldn’t tell, but I am a fan of Paisley. So I will be on the lookout for his South Park episode.
