‘Twilight’ Actor Robert Pattinson Dismisses Brad Paisley in Nashville Guitar Shop
Robert Pattinson is known worldwide as the star of the ‘Twilight’ franchise of films, but many fans may not be aware that the actor is also an amateur musician. In a recent appearance on ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,’ Pattinson revealed that he once unintentionally dismissed country superstar Brad Paisley while looking at guitars in a Nashville music shop.
The actor was visiting Music City briefly when he ended up perusing the selection at the world-famous Gruhn Guitars. He told Fallon that he ended up in the private VIP room upstairs, where a man was running through some hot licks on various instruments.
âThere was a guy there in a baseball cap, and he was just playing guitar, and he was like one of those guitar shop people who seem really impressive,â Pattinson says in theÂ clipÂ below. âHe seemed like a normal guy and he was really sweet. Every guitar I picked up, Iâm sitting there playing my G and C — thatâs about all I can manage — and every single time I touched a guitar theyâd be like, âDo you want this guyâ¦’â
Pattinson confessed his fandom for fellow Fallon guest Carrie Underwood, but he appeared confused when he was trying to recall the mystery guitarist. âWhat was his name? Who is like, the most famous country guitarist?â he asked, before exclaiming, “Brad Paisley! Theyâd say âDo you want Brad to just play it?â I thought he was just a guy that worked there. I had no idea who he was!â
While Pattinson recalled Paisley as a nice guy, he admitted that he found his guitar prowess intimidating. âHe was talking about his farm and stuff and he seemed like a really good guitarist,â he recounted. âI had no idea who he was. I was like âI donât want Brad to play it, this guy who works here, because heâs really good!ââ
Pattinson’s latest film is ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2.’
