Lady Antebellum and Brad Paisley Going to Outer Space?
The artists' tunes were chosen from over 33 million submissions to hit outer space on the Shenzou 10 Space Rocket, according to CJDC. From there, they will be broadcast from the Chinese Space Station to every Chinese classroom. If you know how many people reside in China, then you know that's a lot of classrooms. So, space and China are going to get countrified!
The project is part of a 10-year cultural exchange program between the Beijing Harmony Culture Inheritance Foundation and On-Air Broadcasting's syndicated show Cafe Nashville. The songs chosen include Paisley's 'Southern Comfort Zone' and the trio's hit 'Need You Now,' along with American Young's 'Love Is War.' The three songs were the only American tunes chosen to be broadcast from space.
Country music is already great, but soon it literally will be out of this world!
