Paisley Plans Australian Country Invasion
Singer/songwriter Brad Paisley has become an unofficial music ambassador for Australia, claiming the country has the potential to be country music's next mecca.
The Celebrity singer has struggled to make his mark on audiences outside America, but thinks more country stars should be heading to pal Keith Urban's native Australia - because that's the genre's next big stronghold.
Paisley says, "There are pockets of interest (outside America) and country doesn't really translate anywhere they don't speak English.
"Australia, I think, has the best potential: it's really like a floating Texas out in the ocean."
