He certainly has had no problem getting reservations -- in Nashville where he got his first big break with his hit single who needs pictures. And the first time he heard -- himself in the car. He said Palin at a new guy. And here at about ten minutes ago just left -- -- and a car read. Let's hear that some already over the first time about it it -- As crazy as ruining. In his new book diary of a player this country music star claims he cares more about being loyal and making people laugh than money and -- But is that really possible.

And he's a player who entertained over a million people on his tour this year.

Yes he's -- -- about Tower Records. For -- Possibly -- your GPA can be and still graduate. Of course we now know Paisley is an ace on the guitar but it did take awhile for him to -- love. This song writer couldn't have scripted a better love story than his own. It's straight from more romantic comedy and ironically it all started with the movie father of the bride. After -- -- first love broke his heart he couldn't move on so he went back to the same feeder to see this sequel of their favorite movie hoping she would be there. And some friends of mine talk me into going to see the movie on this the anniversary when we -- see it myself -- myself. And if it's meant to be -- be there did you feel like a -- -- -- lose her yet. And I still do but. That doesn't do that but I I basically did that I've debated on whether to get flowers I was so convinced by -- that. She was gonna think of it. She never came and that's when fate intervenes it was the movie's leading lady Kimberly Williams who we want it. So he devised a plan. I used the idea of a reporter music video thing if she'll do it and let all the guys do it if it isn't it. -- -- be careful these casting call this as sort of the new bachelorette -- His idea works Kimberly started his video on the -- miss her she soon after they got married and now have two sons.
