Here’s a funny story from Brad Paisley about when he was eight-year old on Christmas.  Apparently, he knew his grandfather was going to be giving him a guitar that year, but Brad had his heart set on other things.  He was obsessed with the hot toy of 1980 – the Battleship Galactica.  His Christmas gift that year turned out to be life-changing!
