Brad Paisley: Justin Bieber Is ‘Living a George Jones Song’
In a recent press interview, the ‘Whiskey Lullaby’ singer shared his thoughts on all of the controversy surrounding the Biebs’ personal life. Paisley says that even though some people call country music “old-fashioned,” the topics covered in some of the most famous country songs could be applied to even the most modern headlines — like Bieber.
“In the old-fashioned sense, we sang about stuff that’s really hip now,” Paisley insists. “Johnny Cash sang about drug abuse and he sang about adultery and all these things that are really popular now. [Country music was] way ahead of the game.”
Of course, Paisley insists that he’s more than willing to write the soundtrack to the pop star’s life, which would pull from some of country’s most legendary talents.
“Have you watched Justin Bieber lately? He is living a George Jones song,” the country star claims. “If he needed a soundtrack for what’s going on with him, or Miley [Cyrus] let me know!”
Perhaps Paisley can even spend some time serenading Bieber on Miley’s dad’s farm! In an interview with Radio.com earlier this year, Billy Ray Cyrus offered up his Tennessee farm for the wild teen heartthrob to reconnect with nature and “refocus.”
Whatever happens to Bieber, it’s clear that he has a ton of support from the country community. And Paisley could write the perfect song about it! We’d love to hear that…
