Brad Paisley Jams With the Rolling Stones in Philadelphia, Sings ‘Dead Flowers’
Brad Paisley has joined the club. Tuesday (6/18) saw Paisley become the latest country music superstar to join the Rolling Stones on stage during the legendary rock band’s ’50 and Counting’ Tour. He had the honor of jamming with guitarist Keith Richards and swapped lead vocals with Mick Jagger for a performance of the Stones’ hit ‘Dead Flowers’.
It was no surprise, as his appearance on the Philadelphia was announced last week. The mystery was which song Paisley would be performing. Fans found out just six songs into the show, as Jagger introduced Brad, and he strolled out with his guitar and a Rolling Stones t-shirt. Check it out:
The band looked happy to have Paisley on stage with them, and the crowd gave him a nice round of applause for his effort (never mind the guy you can clearly hear shouting “get that hat off!”, clearly unhappy with the fact that Brad was wearing his signature white cowboy hat. Calm down, buddy. After all, you’re in the City of Brotherly Love. After the show, the Stones’ Ronnie Wood tweeted:
It was great to see @bradpaisley again & to play ‘Dead Flowers’ with him ~ Tweet us your photos if you took any

Brad Paisley is the fourth country artist to join the Stones on tour. Taylor Swift met up with Mick and the boys in Chicago to sing ‘As Tears Go By’, Carrie Underwood joined them in Toronto for ‘It’s Only Rock & Roll’ and Keith Urban did ‘Respectable’ in Los Angeles.
