Synopsis: 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.

About the Author: Brad Paisley was given his first Sears Danelectro guitar by his grandfather when he was only eight years old. This guitar changed the whole direction of his life. By the age of twelve, Brad had already written his first song, “Born on Christmas Day.” At thirteen his growing talent was spotted and he began opening public performances by major country stars such as The Judds, Ricky Skaggs, and even George Jones at the Capital Music Hall in Wheeling, West Virginia. Today, Brad is an acclaimed music superstar artist still in his thirties and the very blessed husband to the lovely and talented actress Kimberly Williams Paisley (whom Brad fell for the moment he saw her onscreen in Father of the Bride), as well as the father of two beautiful sons, Huck and Jasper.

As a graduate of Cornell University, David Wild first worked for Esquire before moving to Rolling Stone. In the mid 90s, Wild started working extensively in television as well as print. Among his numerous credits, he was Emmy-nominated as the head writer for America: A Tribute to Heroes, an all-network telethon held in the wake of 9/11. His TV credits include all the Grammy Awards since 1999, the Country Music Association Awards since 2002, the Emmy Awards since 2005, and much more. He has also written liner notes essays for dozens of artists, including The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Frnak Sinatra, Simon & Garfunkel, Eagles, Aerosmith, AC/DC, Randy Newman, Van Halen, and Van Morrison. David lives in Los Angeles with his wife, his two sons, and multiple iPods.
