Country music star Brad Paisley enlisted the help of some of his music colleagues as he thrilled fans with a Live Instagram concert hosted from the comfort of his home.
It's been a sad few weeks as the highly contagious Coronavirus continues to ravage cities across the globe with health officials now advising that social distancing remains the best way to contain the spread of the virus.
In a move that was roundly applauded by fans, country artist Brad Paisley organized a mini-show on Thursday night to lift the spirits of his self-isolation fans.

The concert was live-streamed from the singer's home, and Brad asked fans for song requests ahead of the show, while still obliging several more during the live-stream on his Instagram page.
Paisley hosted the concert from a chair in his home, in front of an exciting audience of stuffed animals, with his wife, Kimberly, playing the role of his crew. Sharing a series of pictures of the mini-show on his Instagram, Brad wrote:
"Thanks... for the virtual duets tonight. Great camerawork @kimberlywilliamspaisley #requestsfromhome."
During the online concert, fans were treated to several of the country singer's hit songs, including "Mud on the Tires" and "Old Alabama."
Brad was not alone, as he got help from some of his well-known music pals like Carrie Underwood, who joined in for their duet, "Remind Me." Tim McGraw also came in at some point, and the show ended with guest Chris Young joining for a duet of Paisley's "I'm Still a Guy.
It is nice to see the store opening at such a crucial time, with many families pushed to the brink
With authorities placing bans on public gatherings and health officials advising people to stay at home, some other country stars like Luke Combs, Keith Urban, and Luke Bryan have all staged live-stream concerts to thrill their fans in these difficult times.
In addition to this kind gesture to his fans, Paisley and his wife Kimberly recently announced that they would be making free deliveries to the elderly from their new venture, "The Store." Announcing via social media, Paisley said:
"...We have decided to change how we do things a bit. We're mobilizing a group of volunteers to deliver groceries..."
In the video which was shared on Instagram by the entertainer, Paisley added that they would be focusing on two neighborhoods for now — Edgehill and Berry Hill, which are both suburbs of Nashville.
The couple shared that the long-awaited venture was able to open early due to the efforts of a "tireless" group of volunteers.
Brad and Kimberly announced in 2018 that they would be opening a grocery store where all the items would be free and readily available for those in need.
Given the thought behind the venture, it is nice to see the store opening at such a crucial time, with many families pushed to the brink due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
