Small, historic Franklin, TN is just south of Nashville and is considered by many to be one of the coolest little towns in the Volunteer State.
More than a few country stars from the both past and present call the area home and at least one wants to share it with everybody.
On Saturday (4/15) Brad Paisley and about 400 fans basically took over downtown Franklin – a place locals call "America's favorite Main Street" – to shoot the video for his new single "Heaven South." The single is the first from his upcoming album Love And War, which hits stores this week.
Brad used Twitter just before the event to build the crowd, tweeting, "I need country fans" and "you're all invited."
Okay tomorrow at 5 in the Franklin TN town square, we are playing a song and shooting a video. I need country fans. You're all invited.
Not even the Franklin Police Department could contain their excitement.
No place like home! #FranklinTN with Brad #PaisleyOnMain. https://t.co/kdtyFQlUOQ
"Franklin just epitomizes everything about this song to me," Brad told the local NBC affiliate. Watch below:
