Brad Paisley Crushes It on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Country music superstar, Brad Paisley, was the featured musical guest on the remote edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live- filmed live from Austin, TX, as part of the famed South by Southwest (SXSW) Music and Film Festival- performing his latest single, “Crushin’ It”, as well as his chart-proven smash hit, “Perfect Storm”.  A video of each performance can be viewed below.

Backed by his longtime drummer, Pearl Artist, Ben Sesar, Brad Paisley’s late-night performances came in support of his latest studio album, Moonshine in the Trunk, which was released last August.  Moonshine in the Trunk debuted at the No. 1 position on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart, along with peaking at the No. 2 position on the Billboard Top 200 Chart during the time of its release.

As seen in the below performance videos, Ben Sesar, once again turned to his Reference Pure drums- the same kit used on last summer’s ‘Country Nation World Tour’.  Ben’s kit is topped with a matching 14x6.5 Reference Pure snare drum, along with a 12x7 all-maple Soprano snare, both of which were finished in a custom Vermillion Sparkle lacquer. More information on Ben Sesar, including full specs on his custom Reference Pure setup, can be found here.
