Fan favorites Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Kellie Pickler and Scotty McCreery are appropriately featured on this week’s Noteworthy at the Opry, Saturday, June 23 at 9 p.m./ET on Great American Country (GAC) as the episode will focus on fan loyalty, heartfelt fan stories and some of the stars’ favorite gifts they’ve received from their most loyal supporters.
“There’s not this line between the country artist and the fan,” says Brad Paisley. “They really feel like we are one with them and we really feel like we are one with them.” Performances include Carrie Underwood, (“Undo It,” and “Jesus Take the Wheel,”) Brad Paisley, (“Water” and “Celebrity” with Scotty McCreery), Rascal Flatts (“Banjo,” and “Bless the Broken Road,”) and Kellie Pickler, (“Best Days Of Your Life”).
“It feels odd saying ‘fans,’” says Kellie Pickler. “I’d rather just call them ‘friends’ because that’s what you become…it’s almost like family.”
