Brad Paisley apparently wasn’t very happy with the sound at Sunday’s ACM Awards, judging by his tweets on Monday.
First, he participated in the opening number without a hitch. But when he went to The Orleans Arena to host the 3rd Annual ACM Fan Jam, that’s when the problems seemed to start.
His performance of “Outstanding in Our Field” began with a rather confusing clip of Roger Miller, with Dierks Bentley and Hunter Hayes joining later. On Monday, Brad hinted via Twitter that some things had gone wrong.
“Had the strangest dream last night..was playing w/Hunter but my guitar was muted..& then Dierks sang, & Roger Miller was there, but silent..” he tweeted.
The problems continued during his performance of “Beat This Summer,” according to his next tweet: “..&John Mayer was there, but you could barely hear me sing..or him play..&then they played wrap up music over our solos..weird.”
Any sound problems apparently didn’t keep people from watching, as the 48th Annual ACM Awards delivered the show’s best ratings in 15 years.
