Brad Paisley finding it hard to be mean on 'Rising Star'

By Kellie Michaels. CREATED Jul 25, 2014

Brad Paisley says he is finding it hard to be critical of the aspiring singers on his summer ABC reality show “Rising Star.” 

Brad doesn't intend to be mean in his comments to the hopefuls, but says he wouldn't mind using a line from his “Celebrity” music video. The 2003 single was a spoof of reality TV, and featured William Shatner as a judge on an “American Idol” style show in which Brad was a contestant. The line Brad wouldn't mind using comes at the end of the video, when Shatner tells Brad the only part of his performance he liked was the end, when he stopped playing.

Brad admits he likes the idea of using that comment on “Rising Star,” but he says he “probably won’t be that mean.” ‘Rising Star’ airs Sundays at 9 pm ET on ABC-TV.
