OFFSTAGE: Brad Paisley On Green, Gray, Black, Brown, Tan Fashion

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

That’s Brad Paisley‘s favorite color. The green and gray and black and brown and tan of camouflage. At least, that’s what he claims in the song. And he told CMT Radio the pattern he sings about in his hit song “Camouflage” has really been making a statement, especially in Nashville. “All of us here in Nashville own a lot. What’s funny is that I don’t go hunting very much, and neither do a lot of the people that wear it,” he admitted. “And that’s what the song is about really — sort of that it’s become this fashion statement.” That is good news for all of us non-hunters. The ones, like me, who want to wear duck blind Mossy Oak even though we had no idea what it was before the song. And ones who want to be invisible to some but irresistible to others. And now that I’ve heard what Paisley has to say about camo being a fashion statement, I’m thinking of wearing this on the ACM red carpet . Mossy Oak is the new black, right?
