Brad Paisley wants your concert videos

By Stephen L. Betts. CREATED Jun 10, 2014

Although some performers might object to the plethora of mobile devices that capture live video of them in concert, don't worry about Brad Paisley. In fact, Brad wants to check out your clips.

"I want to see it," the country superstar tells Rolling Stone Country. "Get a good one. Get good audio if you can. Your videos [are] a memory, something you can have, and what an amazing experience. Yeah, you see people looking at the concert through their phone. But that's what they want to do. And what YouTube video of a concert ever made you not go?"

As Brad's Country Nation world tour continues, he's also getting ready to release the new album, "Moonshine in the Trunk," on Aug. 26. He's already trying out some of the new songs on concertgoers, including one of the album's songs which he penned specifically for the tour.

"I felt like there was something missing live-wise," he explains. "So we started to work [the song] up with the band to play live. I was like, 'You know what I'd love?' and we wrote it. It's a great way to write a song -- to envision your audience and go, 'They'll like this.'"
