"I, Brad Paisley, future multiple winner of the Guitar Player magazine reader's poll for best country guitarist... got a D in guitar. [My teacher said] 'What you can do is show up for class, Brad. This grade isn't about your playing. It's about you not even showing up or learning anything that I told you to learn." -- Brad Paisley
Country singer Brad Paisley recalls that playing hooky from class didn't stop him from eventually playing his guitar for huge audiences. Too cool for school, cowboy?
