"I sang 'Centerfield' [his 1985 solo hit] at 13 at Jamboree in the Hills, our big outdoor music festival in the hills [of West Virginia]. There were 40,000 people there, and local acts got to do three songs in between sets by people like Charlie Daniels. I got to go out and play 'Centerfield' as one of mine, just because of loving everything about that vibe, it was a song about baseball and the metaphor of 'Put me in, Coach — I'm ready to play.'" — Brad Paisley
