It’s Brad Paisley’s ‘Letter to Me’ Video!
Brad Paisley shot the video for ‘Letter to Me’ at John Marshall High School in Glen Dale, West Virginia, where he graduated in 1991. In his autobiography ‘Diary of a Player,’ Paisley writes candidly about his high school days, explaining how he’d travel around the area with a group of older musicians who wanted to give him his shot in country music. Many of his best friends were two or three times his age.
Paisley wasn’t a great student, but teachers like Mrs. Brinkman helped bring him along. The video depicts a high school reunion which viewers are led to believe includes the singer’s actual classmates. According to reports, that’s not the actual Brad Paisley at the end who is accepting a crowning shirtless. An actor was brought in to play the part. Bummer.
