Trista Sutter Shares Best Advice She’s Ever Received — From Brad Paisley!
Trista and Ryan Sutter are good friends with country star Brad Paisley. Ryan actually surprised Trista by having Brad perform at their wedding. They had their first dance to Brad’s “Something About Her,” a song which Ryan wrote, based on the poem he wrote for her on The Bachelorette Season 1.
“It was January 2008 and Brad Paisley was playing at the Pepsi Center in Denver. After appearing in his ‘Celebrity’ video in 2003, I was lucky enough to call him a friend and make it on an almost annual basis to see him and his band perform. This year he was actually able to hang out a bit and not immediately hop on a plane or bus to hit the next stop on his tour. Backstage, we gabbed about the milestones our baby boys had hit (Huck and Max are only 5 months apart) and how proud we were to be parents. I’m not sure why, but sleeping, or our kids lack thereof, became a hot topic. Not only could Brad completely relate to the struggle we were having getting Max to sleep in his own room, but he offered the BEST piece of parenting advice I probably will ever hear. He said: ‘Have you tried having him cry it out?’ After going through exactly 3 nights of crying, it worked for them like a charm. I was at my wits end and willing to try everything…so the next week we did.”
