Watch Brad Paisley’s Opening Monologue as Guest Host of “Jimmy Kimmel Live”

Brad Paisley served as the guest host on 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.

During his opening monologue, Brad treated viewers to “2020 versions” of songs from his catalog, including “Alcohol,” “Letter to Me” and “Remind Me,” which included a cameo by Carrie Underwood. The monologue also featured Brad telling a few jokes and sidekick Guillermo trying the Beersketball Challenge.
