Brad Paisley prefers you don't know which candidate he voted for in the last Presidential election, but that doesn’t mean he's going to turn down an invitation to perform for President Obama at the White House. He's said yes to that gig twice and also performed at an inaugural gala last year.

Brad opens up about his political performances in a new Nashville Scene interview. He says, “If you don’t agree with this administration, or with any administration, or with Congress, or with issues, boycotting things is not going to help."

Brad goes on to say, "Declining the invitation to play something like the inauguration would be a slap in the face to our democracy. It would be a missed opportunity for country music to be present.”

Brad is singing about more international topics on his single, "The Mona Lisa." It's the latest single from his album, Wheelhouse .
