The Swon Brothers Get Pranked by Brad Paisley & Earn First ACM Nom in One Day!

the swon brothers

The Swon Brothers got a lesson from their tour mate Brad Paisley in Green Bay, WI. The brothers are BIG Detroit Lions fans and well, they WERE playing a show in Lions’ nemesis hometown so how could Brad resist?

Paisley pranked the duo during their set and taught them a little lesson in rivalry, not of the sibling nature.

“Wow, what an incredible day it’s been already! Gotta say, waking up to an ACM nomination after being pranked by our hero last night is just unreal! We are SO honored to be nominated and we are having so much fun out on the road with Brad. We are blessed beyond measure and life is good!” says Colton.

“We’d heard all about Brad’s pranks and we knew it was just a matter of time before something happened, but we have to hand it to him, this was great! I was wondering what was happening when the crowd went from singing along to booing us very intensely and thought he might be up to something, but when I turned around and saw the screen and him standing there telling me I had to wear a cheesehead I just about lost it. All I have to say about this is…. PAYBACK TIME!” says Zach.
