Rock Legend John Fogerty Joins Brad Paisley For Electrifying ‘Proud Mary’ Performance

Whenever Brad Paisley takes the legendary stage at the Grand Ole Opry, the audience knows that they are in for a good show. As a member of the Opry since 2001, Paisley makes frequent appearances there, and entertains with his signature hits and killer guitar skills. 

Over the years Paisley has appeared with many of his fellow country stars at the Opry, including Carrie Underwood, Scotty McCreery, and Keith Urban. But during his most recent appearance on Tuesday (April 12), Paisley was joined on stage by a surprise guest whose roots run deep in rock and roll.

Any guesses on who Paisley’s special guest was?

Well, it was none other than John Fogerty, who is known for being the lead singer and guitarist in Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR).

Paisley and Fogerty teamed up for a jammin’ rendition of one of CCR’s signature songs, “Proud Mary.” The song was written by Fogerty himself and was originally recorded by the band, who scored a #2 hit with it. The song was further popularized when R&B artist Tina Turner released her own version.

During their Opry performance, Paisley let Fogerty take to the microphone to sing the song, while he hung back and played guitar. The performance showcased Paisley’s true talent as a musician, and at one point when Fogerty took a break, Paisley entertained the crowd with a remarkable guitar solo.

We think these two should pair up for more performances in the future!
