Brad Paisley Joins 1 For All Campaign for First Amendment Awareness
Brad Paisley is the latest celebrity adding his highly recognizable face to the 1 For All national public education campaign. 1 For All is designed to give better understanding to Americans about their freedoms granted by the First Amendment.
"Freedom is what makes America great," Paisley says. "I count myself blessed to live in a country where I can exercise that right every day, whether I'm writing, recording or performing."
1 For All launched last July, with print and online advertisements that were featured using the donated space of over 1,000 participating news organizations. The campaign was created after surveys which revealed only one in 20 Americans can name all five freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment.
"Brad Paisley’s music has entertained, engaged and enlightened millions," says Ken Paulson, president of the First Amendment Center and founder of 1 For All. "His work is free speech set to music, and songs like 'Welcome to the Future,' 'American Saturday Night' and 'Alcohol' reveal truths about the world around us."
Ellen DeGeneres, John Mellencamp, Kesha, Mary Chapin Carpenter, LL Cool J and David Gregory are among the other famous faces of performers, artists and journalists to show their support for the campaign by appearing in the national ads.
This week, Paisley is sitting nicely at No. 1 on Billboard's country singles chart with his latest single, 'Old Alabama,' off his newly released eighth studio album, 'This Is Country Music.'
