Brad Paisley's history has had a lot of influence from cars. But you'll never guess how he ended up being chased down by the cops!

This country superstar has been churning out hits since his debut single "Who Needs Pictures" in 1999. Following shortly afterward, Brad Paisley would see his first No. 1 hit "He Didn't Have To Be" and would go on to chart over 30 Top 10 singles. 

In an interview with Car And Driver, Paisley talks all about his obsession with Corvettes. They bring up that his tour bus is all done up like a 1958 Corvette and he has this to say: 

"I have a lot of things painted like that, with the Corvette cove. My guitar room at the studio is an entire room painted red with a giant 12-foot Corvette cove where the guitars hang. You’d love it. That might be the most attractive and iconic design for a vehicle ever. There’s no doubt what that is when you see it."

Obviously that's speaks a lot about his history with cars. He even admits he always gets the newest model of Corvette as soon as they come out! 

"It’s a terrible business model, because what happens is that I’ll get a Corvette and drive it for a few years and then they come out with some new model. So I’ll decide to sell the old one and he’ll say: “Hey, I’ve wanted to talk to you about that. I’ve grown kind of attached to that car. I’d like to buy it from you.” I’m not going to sell my dad a car, after he put me through college. So he has three Corvettes because he’s told me he’s attached to them. When your father says he loves a car, you give it to him."

But, don't let his good looks and charming demeanor fool you. Paisley had himself a bad streak once...and, of course, it involved a car! He reveals his run from the cops to Car and Driver: 

"Yeah, I did [run from the cops]. In college I was going too fast on a big, curvy mountain road that goes to West Liberty University in West Virginia, and I crested one of the hills and I got air. And in the left lane was a car and I could see its police lights. The speed limit was like 45, and I was going probably 80. Immediately his brake lights came on and he was turning around. I could slow down and wait for the inevitable arrest or I could keep going. I kept going as fast as I could. Right before a 90-degree turn I slammed on the brakes, pulled into a driveway, and turned the lights off. Sure enough, 30 seconds later, the sky lights up and it’s the police car with sirens blaring. And he goes right by. After a few cars went by, I fired up my car and pulled out. Sure enough as I drove by he had pulled someone else over. Whatever the next car was."

Brad Paisley is a great country artist who shares a love of an American icon with many of us!

Check out his song "All I Wanted Was A Car" in the video below! 

LYRICS BELOW

My buddy Blake was All-State
With dreams of the NFL
Jenny McClain had big brains
She got a scholarship to Yale

Then there was Herschel
Who did two commercials
And he was gonna be a movie star
But all I wanted was a car
All I wanted was a car

Had a part time job making chicken for Bob's
At the food court at the mall
I hauled my uncle's trash, I cut my neighbor's grass
And I raked the leaves in the fall

My parents, they were stunned
How this former lazy bum
Suddenly was workin' so hard
But all I wanted was a car
All I wanted was a car

Yeah, when I was sixteen
All my dreams revolved around one thing
All I wanted was a car
All I wanted was a car

When I finally got that big hunk of steel
Those four wheels underneath
I went everywhere in it, broke the speed limit
And I even broke in the backseat

Now when I look outside
Sittin' in the drive, it blows my mind to see
An SUV and a Sedan and two kids playing
And I can't believe that they all belong to me

When I caught their momma's eye
In that old thing I used to drive
Never dreamed it would take me this far
All I wanted was a car

When I was sixteen
All my dreams revolved around one thing
All I wanted was a car
All I wanted was a car
All I wanted was a car
All I wanted was a car
All I wanted was a car
