When he’s not selling out venues or pent up in the recording studio, you can most likely find Brad Paisley with two of his true loves: his tour bus or cars.

While he keeps music and his family near and dear to his heart, Paisley likes to show his passion and get a little crazy with his pimped-out home on the road. With décor inspired by his favorite car, Paisley showed off his custom-made 1958 Corvette-styled tour bus to the popular car show, Jay Leno’s Garage. The bus space is decked out head-to-toe in red and black leather with vintage car decals spotted throughout the space. Although the country star can now afford the good things in life in his high-end car taste, he started out like anyone else in a simple cruiser during his high school days.

“High school, I actually sang and played a lot of acoustic shows. I would get a couple hundred bucks every time and before long, I had $3000 and I bought my Chevy Cavalier,” Paisley admitted to the former late night talk show host and car extraordinaire.

Getting down to serious business, Leno got Paisley to fess up on his all-time favorite car, which just so happens to be a Chevy Corvette. Noting his purchase of a used model from 1999 after finding success in the 2000s, Paisley noted the vehicle to be “the most iconic American automobile.”

Leno and Paisley get up to all sorts of tricks after touring the bus by taking a Camaro for a spin in a parking lot to burn out those rubber tires and leave everyone behind in smoke. With Paisley in the driver’s seat, he takes control while taking the car into gear and makes his mark with those burnt black wheel tracks.
