Brad Travels To Ukraine
Brad Paisley recently traveled to Kyiv, Ukraine. He was accompanied by three U.S. senators: Mark Kelly of Arizona, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.
Paisley, who is also from West Virgina like Manchin, presented Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky a WVU hat.
Paisley also performed multiple times in Ukraine. One video posted on social media shows him singing a Ukrainian song in the native language while playing his gutiar.
“I bet you’ve never heard Brad Paisley sing in Ukrainian,” reads the video’s caption.
Sharing “Same Here”
On another occasion, Paisley sang his new song, “Same Here,” in Kyiv’s St. Michael’s Square.
“Same Here” was released earlier this year. In fact, Paisley released the song on the first anniversary of the Russian invasion in Ukraine.
The song features audio from President Zelensky, and serves as Paisley’s response to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. Some of the lyrics are:
“If you miss your mama and worry ’bout your babies, and love each other like crazy. And want someone to share your hopes and fears, same here.”
Paisley’s son, Huck, designed the picture of the Earth that Paisley ended up using as the official cover art for “Same Here.”
Paisley shared a video of himself performing “Same Here” in St. Michael’s Square in Kyiv. He captioned it:
“Same Here, from St. Michael’s Square in Kyiv, Ukraine. Emotional experience seeing all this first hand. So much more to share.”
His wife, actress Kimberly Williams-Paisley, commented on the post. She said:
“Thank you for making the trip there so that you can come home and help us understand more about what it’s like for the people of Ukraine.” She ended her comment with the hashtag “#samehere.“
