Prankster Brad Paisley couldn’t resist injecting a little cruise-gone-wrong humor into Thursday night’s Sony voyage aboard the General Jackson at Country Radio Seminar. Brad first came onstage clad in a life jacket, claiming there was a fire on board, but it turns out the real fire was onstage.
After starting with his new single “Beat This Summer,” the members of REO Speedwagon unexpectedly joined Brad onstage, according to Country Aircheck. Kevin Cronin and Dave Amato kicked into “Take It On the Run,” with Sara Evans chiming in on background vocals.
Cronin announced the debut of “REO Paisley-Wagon,” before going on to play classics “Keep on Lovin’ You” and “Time For Me To Fly.” Asserting that all their hits were actually country songs, the Speedwagon front-man led the performers in an all-star singalong of the classic rock hit “Ridin’ the Storm Out.”
