Brad Paisley like me is a real family man. He cares about his family and those of people he has never met. He is one of the guys that make country music what it is, real and heart touching music.

While we are dodging raindrops up here in the Albany region and the Adirondacks our fellow Americans in the deep South, especially the state of Alabama have been decimated by tornadoes. Over three hundred Americans have been killed by tornadoes recently and thousands of others have lost everything because of them.

Brad Paisley's new hit single on Arista Records Nashville is "Old Alabama" and actually has guest vocals from Alabama lead vocalist Randy Owen who is a native of Fort Payne, Alabama. Today a press release from the Paisley camp came out to WGNA stating the following:

Grand Ole Opry member Brad Paisley welcomed supergroup Alabama to join him on stage at the Opry’s star-packed show, Play On, Nashville!last night. The event marked the first anniversary of the flood that devastated much of Nashville and temporarily displaced the Opry from the Grand Ole Opry House. Paisley and Alabama performed "Old Alabama," which is the current single from Paisley’s forthcoming This Is Country Music album, which streets Monday, May 23.  Artist royalties for the digital single sales in the U.S. of "Old Alabama" will be donated for tornado relief via the American Red Cross.

So buy the download for Brad Paisley's "Old Alabama" at I-tunes, Rhapsody, or anywhere you can legally and help out Alabama tornoado victims today. God bless Brad Paisley, and our fellow Americans who need our help.
