Country crooner Brad Paisley forgot the lyrics to one of his popular songs during his performance at the State of the Metro Address Monday morning at the newly opened Music City Center.
Paisley was performing the song “Welcome to the Future” when he stopped singing mid-song, looked for guidance at the side of the stage and said, “I'm trying to remember the words. It's early and Monday morning.”
After being reminded of the words, Paisley continued singing before forgetting the lyrics for a second and third time.
“This is going to be on YouTube,” he told the crowd with a smile.
Mayor Karl Dean jokingly told Paisley he should consider using a teleprompter.
