Brad Paisley featuring Andy Griffith - Waitin' On A Woman

Nags Head gets a little fame in the newest Brad Paisley video.

This won’t mean much to most of you, but I’ve always like Brad Paisley and I’ve always liked and respected Mr. Andy Griffith and this video was a special treat for me. His newest video was filmed right outside the little pizza shop I used to manage years ago when I was in high school. In the video, he’s talking with Andy Griffith about having to wait on his girlfriend or wife and Mr. Griffith sits down beside him and talks about his experiences waiting on the woman that became his wife. 


Before I worked at Stone Oven Pizza, I used to work at Ace Hardware in Manteo afternoons after school. That’s where I met Andy Griffith and got to talk to him a couple of times. He has these old 1940’s Model A Ford cars that he used to drive around town. I used to cut the keys for his house and cars from time to time for him, and you could sometimes find him sitting in a corner in Sam and Omies over on the beach.


During the intro scene, you can see him standing in front of Stone Oven Pizza, and sitting on the bench where I used to go sit on smoke breaks. It’s nothing really super-special in the scheme of things, but I was just reminded of those years and it’s neat to be able to look back and see that all incorporated into a video done by someone whose music I really enjoy and to include one of the few famous people I’ve ever met and whom I’ve also always respected.


Due to Brad Paisley’s request, you can’t embed the video in this blog, but you can see it on YouTube. The link is


I hope you enjoy it. I thought it was pretty cool myself.


  1. Cool video. Another cool fact: my mom was hired as the tailor for that video. They ended up not needing her, but it was a thrill anyway.

  2. That is neato , neato to have those lovely memories w/ Andy !!!

    When ZZ Top made their video " She Got Legs" , it was filmed outside our restaurant in Houston . They said they liked it filmed there because they didn't have to go far for good food since they ate there all the time , they knew what the menu was like . LOL ! They were good people !
