Listen to the country star chat about music and life on the Foo Fighter guitarist’s “Walking the Floor” podcast.
There’s no doubt Brad Paisley is a country music superstar. His guitar skills have also made him one of the most respected musicians across different genres. It should come as no surprise to hear he’s friends, and occasionally jams, with rock stars.
Chris Shiflett is the guitarist for one of the most successful rock bands in the world. He also fronts a group called Chris Shiflett and the Dead Peasants. They released their debut album in 2013, and it included several covers of country music classics.
In addition to his rock n’ roll day job, Shiflett produces a podcast called “Walking the Floor”, where he talks shop with fellow musicians. Shiflett’s past podcast guests include John Doe, Dwight Yoakam, Steve Earle, and Robbie Fulks.
He first met Paisley at a Dead Peasants show, and they chatted backstage for quite a while. Paisley then joined the band for a song during an aftershow at a bar. Shiflett then invited Paisley to join him on a podcast.
During the interview, the two musicians talked about music, of course, and their influences. They also chatted about everything from books and sharks to President Obama and Buck Owens.
