“Life is Like a Mountain Railroad” — Brad Paisley, Garrison Keillor, Andra Suchy, and The Guy’s All-Star Shoe Band
On last weekend’s show, Garrison and Andra Suchy joined Brad Paisley for the traditional song “Life is Like a Mountain Railroad” (also known as “Life’s Railway to Heaven,” and the closer on Brad’s new album) just before Brad headed across downtown St. Paul for his sold-out show at the Xcel Energy Center.
We have a special guest sitting in with the Shoe Band this weekend and he brought along this lovely paisley-patterned Telecaster.
