Brad Paisley to Guest Host “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Sept. 9

Brad Paisley will guest host Jimmy Kimmel Live on Sept. 9. The titular host has been on a break from the spotlight since June.

A number of celebrities have guest hosted the late-night talk show this summer, including David Spade, Anthony Anderson, Kerry Washington, Rob Lowe, Ben Stiller, George Lopez, Joel McHale and more.

Brad, of course, is no stranger to hosting big events. He co-hosted the CMA Awards with Carrie Underwood from 2008 to 2018. In December 2019, Brad hosted his own prime time TV special, Brad Paisley Thinks He’s Special.

Jimmy Kimmel Live airs weeknights on ABC at 11:35 p.m. ET.

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
