Brad Paisley is Bringing His Guitar To Shark-Infested Waters For Shark Week


Brad Paisley is ready to prove that he can perform country music just about anywhere. And we mean...anywhere. The Nashville star is set to show off his musical talents on the Discovery Channel's Shark Week 2021 for an underwater performance you won't want to miss. According to CMT, this Shark Week special will premiere on Tuesday, July 13 at 9 PM ET and will literally take place in the ocean.

Brad Paisley's Shark Country will partner the country star up with comedian J.B. Smoove and marine scientist Dr. Austin Gallagher to figure out which sounds attract or repel sharks -- good ol' country music or comedy. The two performers will be giving an unbelievably memorable underwater show in the shark-infested waters of the Bahamas and yes, Paisley will be playing his guitar down there in his scuba gear. Face-to-face with tiger sharks.

Via a press release, Smoove explains, "Me and Brad Paisley attempt to see if sharks have a taste for country or comedy... so don't miss what happens."


We can't wait to see what songs Paisley decides to perform for the sharks because he's had so many good recent hits. His duet with Jimmie Allen, "Freedom Is a Highway" is amazing, but the singer-songwriter regularly continues to release strong hits year after year.

Meanwhile, JB Smoove is best known for being a writer and cast member on Saturday Night Livethe film On the Count of Three, which he stars in opposite Tiffany Haddish, and more. Smoove and Paisley are two of many celebrities set to join Shark Week this year, along with William Shatner, Noah Schnapp, the cast of Jackass, Robert Irwin and more.
