Brad Paisley dedicates song to American Ebola victim
Brad Paisley is dedicating his song “Me and Jesus” to Dr. Kent Brantly, one of two Americans to have recently contracted Ebola while working with victims in Africa. Brad tweeted to his 2.8 million followers, "Pray for Dr. Kent Brantly – one of those brave souls who risks his life to save others." He followed up that tweet with a recording of "Me and Jesus," adding, "I'm moved by the Christian Dr. Fighting Ebola who gave the serum to his friend. So Here's a bonus track. For him."

Dr. Brantly has been the center of headlines after contracting the Ebola virus in Liberia, and being transported to Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital where he’s being treated in an isolated unit. He’s officially the first person to enter the United States with Ebola.
The song "Me and Jesus" will be a bonus track on Brad's new album, "Moonlight In The Trunk," arriving in stores on August 25. Listen to audio of Brad performing the song at the George Jones memorial service in 2013 below.
