Brad Paisley Rewards Pair Of Friends Trying To Unify Community With Beer, Zoom Call

Brad Paisley paid a surprise digital visit to best friends Benjamin Smith and Marcus Ellis who hosted a driveway get-together with a simple offer to the Rochester, NY community – "Black or white, relax and have a beer.” reports that their "powerful image of a white man and a black man clinking bottles and sharing a beer, spread like wildfire on social media." The wildfire made its way to Brad, who so loved what they were doing that he had hundreds of dollars worth of beer shipped directly to their house and followed up with a surprise Zoom call.

Brad said, “I’m so inspired by you, and we thought we should deliver more beer than you could possibly drink . . .This is going to be a popular destination on this street.”

He treated the men to a performance of his latest single, appropriately titled "No I In Beer," and even stayed on the Zoom call for about 30 minutes to be a part of the block party.
