Brad Paisley will step in as guest host on the Ellen DeGeneres Show for an episode on Wednesday, December 29, 2021.

This is Brad’s first time hosting the show, but his seventh visit to the show overall. Brad joked in a press release, “I was so honored Ellen asked me to guest host during her final season. It shows so much belief… letting someone host a show that’s going off the air anyways.”

Cary Elwes (“A Castle for Christmas”) and Tori Kelly (“Sing 2” and children’s book, “The Curly Girl Blues”) are the featured guests. Brad also welcomes 11-year-old singer and guitar player Champ Jaxon.

Over the weekend, Paisley presented the “Harmony Award” to the musicians of the Nashville Symphony during their annual Symphony Ball. Brad, a 2013 Harmony Award recipient himself, and his family are season ticket holders and he says there is nothing like experiencing the magic of a live orchestra.
