Not only did Brad Paisley get the opportunity to open for the Rolling Stones during their stop in Nashville, but he also got to join them for one of their best-known songs.
During their Zip Code Tour‘s stop at Nashville’s LP Field on June 17, fans were surprised to see Paisley join in on guitar and vocals for their hit song, “Dead Flowers.”
Before the song began, Mick Jagger gestured to Paisley’s shirt adorned with the band’s classic lips logo. “Nice shirt, Brad,” he said with a smile, and Paisley responded by getting Jagger to display his newly perfected southern accent. During the performance, it was clear that the band wanted to keep Paisley in the spotlight. Keith Richards motioned Paisley to the front of the stage when he tried to share a mic with the famed guitarist, obviously encouraging him to enjoy the moment as much as possible.
This isn’t the first time Paisley has shared the stage with the British rock legends. His friendship with the band goes back to 2013, when he made a surprise appearance at the Stones’ 50 & Counting Tour stop in Philadelphia, where they performed the same Sticky Fingers track.
