Paisley the guitarist gets his moment on CD

At a recent concert, as Brad Paisley closed his show, B.B. King flashed onto a giant screen behind him. The pair began trading guitar licks on the blues workout “Let the Good Times Roll.” The solos were loose and raw, and their interaction so flawless that it felt like King was in the house.
