A rain storm couldn’t stop Brad Paisley from delivering a concert for his fans on Friday’s “Today” show. Check out the videos below!

As Gossip Cop has reported, the “Today” show is hosting outdoor concerts all summer long. They typically take place outside the morning show’s studio, where a massive stage is erected in Rockefeller Plaza. And hundreds of fans usually show up to watch, some even camping out overnight to ensure access. But today, Mother Nature necessitated a change of plans.

As a thunderstorm rolled into the area, the crowd was forced to leave the staging area and take shelter. The wet crowd was moved inside to the lobby of a nearby building, where Hoda Kotb brought some of the fans coffee. “Are you gonna wait it out til the end?” she asked one, who replied, “Yes, definitely.” She then assured Matt Lauer, “We’re all here, we’re gonna wait. We’re praying the rain will go away… We’re soaking wet, but we’re optimistic.”

But as the rain continued to come down, Paisley surprised his waiting fans by showing up to mingle with them in the lobby. Ultimately, it was determined the concert would have to take place indoors, making for a far smaller, but more intimate show. He kicked off his set with the moving track “Today.” Paisley originally wrote the song years ago, but only finished it for a release last fall. While it peaked at number three on the Country Airplay chart, it debuted at number one on the Country Digital Sales list.

As a group of fans watched, Paisley went on to sing “Mud On The Tires,” which was actually chosen by his supporters. In advance of the concert, the “Today” show asked fans to pick which song they’d most like him to perform out of a couple of different options. This track, from the 2003 album of the same name, was the one that scored the most votes. It was a number one hit on the Hot Country Songs chart back in 2004, and now added a “Flashback Friday” twist to the “Today” concert.

Interestingly, last year Paisley did a summer concert with “GMA.” It’s unclear why he changed allegiances this time around but at least the show still went on, despite the rain. Watch the videos below!
