This book is the very personal story of how Brad Paisley
came of age as a musician and a man. Focusing on what it
means to play the guitar and how he found his voice through
a series of guitars, the book will also share what he has
learned about life along the way. Beginning with his own
very personal love letter to the guitar and what the
instrument has meant in his life as a way to find his voice
in the world, the book then moves into a musical, but
personal, diary. Brad tells the story of his own musical
passion, while writing loving salutes and sharing memorable
tales about all the great players in country, blues, and
rock & roll who have inspired him over the years.
As he wrote in liner notes of his instrumental guitar album,
Play, his first guitar was a gift from his grandpa when Brad
was only eight. Brad quickly learned that no matter how he
changed and evolved, the guitar was his only real constant.
When life gets intense, he says, “there are some people who
drink, who seek counseling, eat, or watch TV, cry, sleep,
and so on. I play.”
Included in the book will be sidebars from a wide array of
musical stars who know and love Brad. In these sidebars,
this host of guitar and musical gods will share their take
on Brad or stories of their favorite memories about him.
