Brad Paisley celebrates his 44th Birthday today.
Paisley was born in 1972, in Glen Dale, West Virginia to Doug Paisley, a worker for the West Virginia DoT, and Sandy Paisley a teacher.
After high school, Paisley went to college and interned at ASCAP, Atlantic Records, and Fitzgerald-Hartley Management Firm. During this time Paisley would meet many people who would help his career.
Within a week of graduating college, Paisley signed a songwriting contract with EMI Music Publishing.
In 1999, he made his debut as a singer on the label Arista Nashville, with the song “Who Needs Pictures”. The rest is history.
