When Brad Paisley sings about enjoying some fun on the “River Bank” in his latest single, he’s drawing from his childhood experiences back home in West Virginia.
Brad says, “I grew up maybe a thousand yards from the Ohio River, if that, and that was where we spent every day when it was nice. My family had a boat. I learned to ski on that river.”
Looking back on that time, Brad is most fond of the time he got to spend with his dad and grandpa out on that boat.
“There’s something about that as being, in my opinion, the answer to happiness,” Brad explains.
“River Bank” is now available for download. Brad premiered the song last month on the ACM Awards.
