Brad Paisley Receiving Video Visionary Award at 2013 American Country Awards
When you pair the words “video” and “visionary” together, many country music fans probably think of Brad Paisley, who is known for his long list of immensely creative music videos. Now, he’s being recognized for exactly that, with the prestigious Video Visionary Award.
The honor will be presented to the ‘Southern Comfort Zone’ hitmaker at the 2013 American Country Awards in December. He is specifically being given this prize in recognition of his nearly 15 years pairing amazing songs with creative, immensely entertaining music videos. Those have ranged drastically, from heartbreaking to hilarious — including one in which Paisley got up close and personal with a giraffe.
The Video Visionary Award has only been given out once before, with Toby Keith scoring it in 2010. It is a rare achievement that not many have attained.
Paisley will be onstage at least twice at the 2013 ACAs, once to receive the coveted award and once to perform his song ‘The Mona Lisa.’ He’s also up for Touring Artist of the Year.
Although the camera won’t be on Paisley as much as it was at the 2013 CMAs, during which he co-hosted with Carrie Underwood, the singer is probably ready for a bit of a break where he’ll be able to sit back, relax and enjoy most of the show. The 2013 American Country Awards will air live on Dec. 10 at 8PM ET on FOX.
