Tonight’s “Brad Paisley Thinks He’s Special” will showcase a talented singer you’ve never heard of.  Her name is Addie Pratt and she’s a St. Jude’s cancer survivor.  She and Brad do a song called “Alive Right Now”.

He chose her because he wanted to “shine a light on something good” in the special.  And he got a bonus because she knocked it out of the park.

He says, quote, “It’s one of the highlights of not only the night, but of my entire career.  She did so great on this performance that we had her come in the studio and record it for the record.

“You’ll hear this [song] on the radio, and you might think it’s a top new female vocalist in country music.”

Here’s the song:

Back to tonight’s special.  You’ve probably heard about all the stars.  It features Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, Kelsea Ballerini, Darius Rucker, Peyton Manning, Chris Harrison, Hootie & The Blowfish, and the Jonas Brothers.

Brad was telling “People” how the Jonas Brothers are the “best sports” when it comes to comedy.  There’s even a bit in tonight’s show that pokes serious fun at NICK JONAS.
