It’s Brad Paisley’s ‘When I Get Where I’m Going’ Video!
Brad Paisley won the ACM for Video of the Year in 2005 with this clip. The concept is simple: ordinary people holding photos of loved ones that have died. Things change during the second verse when the singer is shown holding a photograph of his grandfather Jarvis.
In his autobiography, Paisley explains how Jarvis was more than a grandpa. He was his band leader and a good friend early in life. The words take on special meaning with these images. At the end, viewers get to see video of the West Virginian saying “Come on in and rock awhile.”
Other notable photographs include Johnny and June Carter Cash (held by John Carter Cash), Ronald Reagan (held by his son Michael) and Dale Earnhardt (presented by his wife, Teresa).
