After more than four years, Brad Paisley returned to Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on April 6 for a headlining gig as part of his Weekend Warrior Tour, which also featured openers Dustin Lynch, Chase Bryant and Lindsay Ell.
As expected, Brad showed off his guitar chops and delivered a number of his fan-favorite hits, including “Perfect Storm,” “American Saturday Night,” “I’m Still a Guy” and more.
But the strangest delivery of the night came from Dustin Lynch, who presented Brad with a dwarf goat cloaked in a Wonder Woman outfit. Dustin gave the goat, which he named Tele after Brad’s fondness of Telecaster guitars, to Brad as an end-of-tour thank-you gift.
“In my opinion, Brad Paisley is one of the greatest of all time to do this,” said Dustin. “He is one of the ‘goats’ of country music. So Brad, I got you a goat.”
“G-O-A-T” is the acronym for “Greatest Of All Time,” which is commonly used in sporting and entertainment circles.
Brad’s wife, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, posted an Instagram photo of the goat on April 7 with the caption: “#aboutlastnight
Anyone know how to take care of a goat??” Check out the goat below, which is standing in front of a cherry red 1961 Corvette.
