Home / Music News / The Christmas Brad Paisley Tried to Prank Santa


At this point in his career, Brad Paisley is as well known for pulling practical jokes on tour as he is for writing hit songs and being a Grade A guitar player. The “Country Nation” singer admits his vivid imagination and flair for hijinks dates back to his childhood.

“One year I tried to figure out — it was about fifth or sixth grade, I think I was startin’ to… oh no, it was third or fourth grade,” he remembers. “I was startin’ to get the hint that maybe there wasn’t a Santa Claus… which there is, by the way,” he adds. “But I wanted to prove it once and for all, so I stuck a tape recorder, pressed record, stuck it behind the Christmas tree, and left it on hoping that I would hear whoever was gonna place those presents there.”

Brad says his plan would’ve worked perfectly except for one thing: “I forgot to plug it in,” he says.

This Christmas, Santa will be visiting Brad’s sons Huck and Jasper, provided they’ve been good little boys this year. Their mom, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, stars in Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip, which is now in theaters.
