Brad Paisley headed down to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida last weekend to launch his new song, "American Flag on the Moon." While standing on Launch Pad 39B, where a Saturn V rocket once launched three American astronauts on a trip to the moon, Brad sent a tweet of the song to NASA astronaut Reid Wiseman, who's currently on the International Space Station.
The astronaut listened to the song after Brad "leaked" it, though Reid tweeted Brad back, "We don't usually like leaks at the launch pad."
"American Flag on the Moon" is included on Brad's new album, Moonshine in the Trunk, coming out next Monday.
In other Brad news, he's a key player in the launch of the new country-lifestyle channel My Country Nation. The digital outlet will feature country concerts, grilling, hunting and comedy via new shows premiering daily at MyCountryNation.com as well as through Twitter at @MyCountryNation, Facebook.com/MyCountryNation and Instagram: mycountrynation.
Brad says, "My Country Nation is a great concept and I'm glad to be working with a few of my friends to make it a reality.”
