Shared on the ABC YouTube channel, the clip of Carrie Underwood driving a Chevrolet on the “Brad Paisley Thinks He’s Special” special has been viewed close to 400K times since being uploaded on December 3, 2019. The clip features the pair of country music superstars hamming it up while mudding, with Carrie at the wheel. The special aired on December 3, 2019 on ABC, and has since been available on demand, as well as to stream on and the ABC app, in addition to Hulu.

Appropriately called “Mud on the Tires with Carrie Underwood – Brad Paisley Thinks He’s Special,” the video shows Underwood taking the wheel as Brad poses some questions, similar to “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” but not quite. With a glass of sweet tea, Paisley asking some questions, and Underwood doing the muddin’, it only gets bleeped once, surprisingly!

Tearing around the field in that Chevy, Paisley does his best to ask questions while hanging on, and Underwood proves why the duo worked so well as former CMA Award Show hosts. Taking off in true country style, they manage to get a couple interview questions in while cruising through the field at high speeds. In addition to Underwood’s appearance, “Brad Paisley Things He’s Special” features Peyton Manning of NFL fame, Tim McGraw, Kelsea Ballerini, Hootie & The Blowfish, the Jonas Brothers, and Chris Harrison – host of The Bachelor. Here in Texas, it aired at 7 p.m. Central Time on ABC on December 3, 2019, and it’s still available on-demand and to stream on the website, app, and streaming service noted above. “One of the reasons we named it Brad Paisley Thinks He’s Special is because I felt like it would be a lot of fun to tear me down throughout this and that’s kinda the vehicle. I’m roasted the whole time. This doesn’t serve to elevate me in any way, really…From the minute the show starts, Peyton Manning is telling me how I really should not even be doing this. And it gets worse after that,” Paisley said, according to
