Witness this monumental moment between Brad Paisley and a rock ‘n’ roll legend at the Grand Ole Opry Twitter/Brad Paisley

Brad Paisley has had his fair share of proud musical moments.

Now, he can add another one to that list.

On April 12 during a concert at the Grand Ole Opry, Brad treated fans to one very special surprise guest — John Fogerty. While the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has set foot on plenty of stages throughout his lifetime, he has never been on the world famous Opry stage. That is until now.

Making sure that the former Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman was front and center Brad told the crowd, “We’re going to play some music, and you’re going to know these so sing along.”

Then the two guitar-slingers played a trio of songs, “Looking Out My Back Door,” “Centerfield” and “Proud Mary,” the latter being added after the audience praised them with a standing ovation.

Earlier in the week, Brad teased the special performance with a series of tweets. He first wrote, “You don’t want to miss the @Opry tomorrow night, folks. Just sayin’.”


And on April 13 he added, “Tonight one of the greatest artists of all time is going to take the @Opry stage for the first time. But, shhhh. It’s a surprise.”

Although, watching a country great and a rocker legend perform together at the Grand Ole Opry might leave just about anybody speechless, for Brad it was “worth a thousand words.”
