Brad Paisley honors dad, firefighters in ‘Planes’ sequel
The country star wrote and sings the final song in the animated film, which highlights firefighter bravery and sacrifice
EMERYVILLE, Calif. — Brad Paisley has created the ultimate Father’s Day gift for his firefighter dad, Doug: a musical tribute to the heroes of the profession.
The country star wrote and sings the final song in the animated film Planes: Fire & Rescue, called All In, which highlights firefighter bravery and sacrifice. Paisley sings an additional song in the film due out July 18 and makes a voice cameo appearance.
Among All In’s lyrics: Without hesitation in the face of fear and doubt/There’s smoke and flames and everybody needs out/They’re all in. After performing songs on the animated hits Cars (2006) and Cars 2 (2011), Paisley became close friends with John Lasseter, the chief creative officer of Pixar and Disney Animation Studios. Lasseter suggested Paisley’s role in the new film, about firefighting planes.
