Brad Paisley will return to his West Virginia hometown to shoot his latest video. “He’s proud of his West Virginia roots,” his father, Doug Paisley, told West Virginia Public Broadcasting.

The video is for the song “Letter to Me,” from the 34-year-old country singer’s new album, “5th Gear.” It’s about what Paisley would write to himself if he could send a letter back in time to when he was 17. It includes advice on romantic relationships, dating, studying and driving.

Paisley is inviting some of his classmates from John Marshall High School to be in the video. He graduated in 1991.

The video crew is expected to be in Glen Dale over the next few weeks. The final shooting schedule is still being discussed.

Paisley’s hits include “Whiskey Lullaby,” “Alcohol,” “Celebrity” and “Ticks.”
