Brad Paisley Says He Sympathizes with Carrie Underwood

brad and carrie

Brad Paisley recently revealed he doesn’t really know what advice he can give to good friend and country singer Carrie Underwood, who has recently become a mother to Isaiah Michael Fisher.

He recalled how when Carrie was pregnant, she asked Brad for some parenting tips but he admitted that he has “no clue” what to advise the new mum.

“I have no clue what to tell her,” Paisley told CMT. “I’ve gotten a few of texts from Carrie… like, ‘Who’s your pediatrician?’ And, ‘How do you do that?’ Or, ‘What’s this?'”

Brad explained that his kids Hunk and Jasper get to be with their mother at home while he’s out touring, so he sympathizes with the prospect of his good friend having to tour with baby Isaiah.

“I cannot imagine what it would be like if she’s got a weekend with three shows, and she’d have to just leave breast milk in the fridge. That would be rough,” he said.

Brad will be the opening act for the Rolling Stones on June 17 in Nashville, and Carrie was admittedly pretty eager to score some tickets to the show.

On her Instagram account (@carrieunderwood), the country Christian singer wrote, “This is awesome! I wanna go!!!!! Brad, hook a girl up with tickets!”

Brad could not resist teasing his friend and gave her a “no”, but he quickly added: “Now, if she wants to come sing ‘Remind Me,’ I could. Not a bad idea huh?”


Does Carrie Underwood Have a Stalker?

Carrie and Mike

Authorities received a complaint yesterday (5/23) that a man was acting oddly near the cottage of Carrie Underwood and her husband Nashville Predator player Mike Fisher in Peterborough, Ontario.

A man was driving back and forth on the road near the couple’s cottage north of Peterborough, raising neighbors’ suspicions that he was trying to find the home. When stopped by a resident, he said he was looking for a good fishing hole.  However, the neighbor says he had passed several to get to the area, so police were contacted.

Mr. Fisher grew up near Bridgenorth and still has a summer home there so the couple and their baby son Isaiah can visit family.

The authorities offered to send out the canine unit but opted to wait until an officer could find out more.
