Video: Brad Paisley takes the stage with dozens of college football mascots, including the Ole Miss mascot.
Last night, the 49th Annual Country Music Awards were hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood in Nashville, Tennessee. Among performances from country music’s biggest stars, Brad Paisley preformed his latest hit “Country Nation”. The song is basically a college football anthem, mentioning several college football teams and football game traditions. Last night, as Paisley rocked out on stage, dozens of college football mascots danced behind him in support of their teams, including Rebel Bear. Way to represent Ole Miss!
The Ole Miss Rebels are also mentioned in Paisley’s song:
“We’re Mountaineers, we’re Volunteers
Blue Devils, Heels and REBELS
Fighting Irish and Cavaliers
We soup up our Chevrolets
Cheer 24 and 88
We crank up the same songs Friday night
On two thousand country stations
Yeah, we’re one big country nation, that’s right”
Thanks Brad Paisley! Hotty Toddy!
