Life on the road can be trying at times. Following the highs of a performance come the lows of travel, and so artists often need to find ways to pass the time as they move between cities.
And if you are Brad Paisley, that time is apparently often spent planning pranks!
This week alone, Brad has pulled off some good ones. First, after his buddy Scotty McCreery fell off a stage during a performance, Brad pranked him by taping off and putting down cones, so the young singer stays safe while performing.
And he had a little fun, too, with his Virtual Reality tour mates, The Band Perry.
At a recent show in Darien Lakes, New York, Brad had The Band Perry turned into the Doodlebops on the video screen behind them. (The Doodlebops, if you don’t know, is a Canadian kids TV show.)
While performing their opening number, “Hip To My Heart,” each member of the band was transformed into a character. And while it is obvious that Kimberly and her brothers soon realize what is happening, they continue with the song and don’t skip a beat. It is funny, though, to watch Kimberly looking over her shoulder at the screen every so often, to see what it going on up there.

Do you think that The Band Perry or Scotty will retaliate? What could they do to top Brad’s pranks?
