Brad Paisely Teams With St. Jude Cancer Survivor Addie Pratt for New Song, “Alive Right Now” [Listen]

Brad Paisley will return to prime time on Dec. 3 at 7 p.m. CT as host of his own variety TV special, Brad Paisley Thinks He’s Special.

The hour-long special will feature Brad—and a bevy of his famous friends—performing music and comedic numbers from Nashville’s iconic War Memorial Auditorium. Special guests include Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, Darius Rucker, Kelsea Ballerini, Hootie & the Blowfish, Jonas Brothers, Chris Harrison, Peyton Manning and more.

One of the show’s highlights features Brad teaming with cancer survivor Addie Pratt to sing a new song, “Alive Right Now.”

“I had met this girl, Addie Pratt, at St. Jude Children’s Hospital, who’s now a proud [cancer] survivor—a great example of what that place can do,” says Brad. “One of the things I said when ABC gave me this show was I would like to do something good with this as opposed to just making a show. Let’s do something that serves the higher good. I can’t think of a better example of what’s great about being alive right now than a place like St. Jude Children’s Hospital. I had this idea to have a survivor sing a line [from a new song], but I had no idea this survivor was like Beyoncé. She deserves a record deal. In the show you can image that moment is really—it was all I could do not to cry.”
