Brad Paisley Rocks 'Country Nation' With NCAA Mascots at the 2015 CMA Awards

With Carrie Underwood’s performance already in the books, her 2015 CMA Awards co-host took the stage for a performance of his own.

Brad Paisley rocked out his 2015 single “Country Nation,” backed by dozens of NCAA mascots and a big-headed mascot rendition of… himself. After all, the song is a blue collar rallying cry that features shout outs to Mountaineers, Volunteers, and Seminoles.
