Artists like Brad Paisley and Blake Shelton hold a special place in my heart because...THEY'RE FUNNY! Some people have the gift of music, some people have the gift of comedy, but only a few are really good at both. I remember some years ago while working the country morning show at a station called W4 Country (WWWW-FM) in Detroit, the program director said a new artist was coming in for an interview and to sing a couple songs live on air. That morning was filled with laughter as this kid named Brad Paisley sang clever songs and cracked jokes. We all knew he was going to be a super star after the first 5 minutes!
