This past Saturday night, Brad Paisley was bestowed the prestigious Harmony Award by the Nashville Symphony at the 29th annual Symphony Ball, “A Midwinter Night’s Dream,” held at Schermerhorn Symphony Center. Former Senator Bill Frist was on hand to present the award to Paisley as he detailed his journey to Nashville, his dedication to the craft and his commitment to serving others through such initiatives as Water=Hope Campaign and most recently Live Beyond, a Nashville nonprofit with a mission to provide medical care, clean water, nutritional support and development activities to impoverished communities in Haiti. Each year the Symphony presents the Harmony Award to a person who exemplifies musical excellence, embodies the spirit of community, contributes to Nashville’s vibrant music industry and makes a difference in people’s lives.

After accepting the award, Paisley performed his No.1 hit “Southern Comfort Zone” with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, conducted by Kelly Corcoran, followed by an acoustic medley of two more of his No.1 hits “I’m Gonna Miss Her” and “I’m Still A Guy.” Paisley finished his set with a jazzy rendition of “I’ll Be Home For Christmas.”
