Brad Paisley performs on NBC's 'Today Show' at Rockefeller Plaza on September 4, 2015 in New York City.

C/D: What was your first car?

BP: I’m the son of the son of a Pontiac salesman. My dad, working for his dad, was a Pontiac guy. And I was raised that way so that by the time I could get a car, I didn’t just want something that would roll. The first one for me was a Chevy Cavalier.

C/D: Ewww!

BP: But it was great because it was 00, and I saved up to get it because I played a lot of music in my home area. Christmastime was always a bunch of solo acoustic gigs, and they’d pay you 0 or 0 for a couple hours to stand there and sing. My next car, the car I drove to Nashville, was a Pontiac Firebird.

C/D: Your dad is still into cars?

BP: 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.

C/D: What’s the greatest driving song of all time?

BP: I would say “East Bound and Down” [by Jerry Reed, from the Smokey and the Bandit soundtrack]. You can’t listen to that and not go a little faster.
