Brad Paisley and Andy Griffith Team Up For Paisley's New Video

Paisley and Co. flew down a week before the shoot took place, creating the opportunity for some quality bonding time between the two parties.Andy drove us around his property. It's just beautiful down there,” said Paisley. “Afterwards we sat around the house and told stories. Andy still has the Martin guitar that he played on The Andy Griffith Show. Matter of fact Andy said he played that same guitar in the movie, A Face in the Crowd. I can't believe I sat in his house on his sofa and played that same guitar while Andy sang, 'You get a line and I'll get a pole, honey, You get a line and I'll get a pole, babe, You get a line and I'll get a pole and we'll go down to the crawdad hole, Honey, baby mine.'"Brad said he still uses the Andy Griffith Show as a tutorial when it comes to raising Huck.I told him, you're helping me to raise my son,” he said. “I raise my son by watching the show and deal with my son the same way you dealt with Opie. Your show was one of the greatest ways to raise a child. When my son does the things Opie did and needs reprimanding, I saw how you handled it and that's how I will handle the situation if and when it arises.”Paisley will soon go on tour with up-and-comers Chuck Wicks, Julianne Hough and Jewel.
