Nashville, Tenn.

“Tonight was a special night! Having Brad perform with me and especially on my new album is something special,” Williams said. “It’s a good ‘ole honky-tonk song that Brad-cephus and Bocephus had a lot of fun playing tonight!”
“I count as one of my greatest blessings in this career being able to get to know Hank,” Paisley said. “When I heard the song, I said, ‘This is perfect’. It’s such a great tribute to his dad. The idea that two of us from this generation are getting together to forget a woman with the music of his father is too much fun! It’s a highlight for me!”
