PAISLEY VIDEO HAS STAR WARS CONNECTION
Brad Paisley’s video for “When I Get Where I’m Going,” was not shot on an extraterrestrial location…but it was filmed on the ranch that the film “Star Wars,” paid for, George Lucas’ Skywalker Ranch in California.
The premise of the video, as is the song, is there's hope when you lose a loved one to death that you will meet again in a much better place than earth - heaven. Throughout the video celebrities appear holding photos of their loved ones that have gone before them. Dolly Parton holds a photo of her grandfather, Michael Reagan his father - Ronald Reagan, Scott Hamilton a family member, John Lassiter of Pixar Pictures with a co-worker, various family members and friends of Paisley are in the video and then Paisley himself with a photo of his aunt (who was the inspiration for recording the song) and then with his grandfather in a very touching home movie.
World Premiere of the video is this Thursday (Dec. 8) on CMT's TopTwenty Countdown - 4:30pm Eastern.
ALSO, IF YOU MISSED PAISLEY’S appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman last month, it’s repeating this week on Friday, Dec. 9th. On the show Paisley performs “I’ll Take You Back”
