You people are so smart.
More than a dozen got the answer right to Friday's Brad trivia question: Which country singer flies airplanes and makes his own wine?
It is indeed Aaron Tippin, who owns several planes and lots of land and a municipal airport and some vineyards.
Aaron was kind enough to fly me around in an old-school two-seat open cockpit plane and then serve me some spicy white zinfandel kinda wine. (I'm sure I butchered the names/descriptions of both the plane and the wine, but you get the idea.)
A special shout out here to Aaron's faboo songwriting wife, Thea, who made some crazy Greek meatballs for dinner.
Aaron's an excellent pilot, but I went around all day beforehand predicting a terrible accident because I was afraid I would exceed the plane's weight limit.
Tennessean music writer Peter Cooper, always happy to quash my ego, came up with this headline should tragedy have struck:
''COUNTRY SUPERSTAR AARON TIPPIN IN PLANE CRASH (Also, columnist).''
