Brad Paisley Joins the Rolling Stones to Sing ‘Dead Flowers’ in Philadelphia
Brad Paisley is the latest country star to join the Rolling Stones on stage during their 50 and Counting Tour. The ‘Beat This Summer’ singer jammed with guitarist Keith Richards and traded verses with Mick Jagger during the rock group’s 1971 hit ‘Dead Flowers’ on Tuesday (June 18).
The cameo was announced last Wednesday, but fans didn’t find out which song Paisley would be a part of until last night. His appearance came six songs into the set. In addition to three guitar solos, he handled the second verse and joined Jagger during the chorus. At one point, Richards came over to admire his guitar work, and as Paisley exited, the entire band looked very pleased with the effort.
It’s the fourth country cameo on the Stones tour, following Taylor Swift in Chicago on June 3 and Carrie Underwood on May 25, as well as Keith Urban in Los Angeles. Of the four, Paisley seemed the least starstruck. Jambase called it one of the best cameos of the tour.
Brad Paisley was recently announced as one of the headliners for the 2014 Taste of Country Music Festival.
