That Time Brad Paisley and Carrie Fisher Got Together on Screen with William Shatner During the CMA Awards


A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away– Nashville and Bridgestone Arena– Brad Paisley got to share the stage with two of his sci-fi heroes, William Shatner and Carrie Fisher.

Yes, that’s right– Carrie Underwood’s legal name is Carrie Fisher, just like Princess Leia. During the 2015 CMA Awards cold open Carrie even played Carrie for a few minutes before being greeted on stage by Shatner.



Paisley recently paid tribute to the actress who died at 60.
