Brad Paisley pays homage to the pint-sized reality star in “The Ballad Of Honey Boo Boo.”

Paisley unveiled the tribute last night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!.” Paisley, who is not only one of music’s best guitar players and songwriters, has the perfect ear for parody and his comedic timing is perfect in this clip that has too many highlights to mention. There’s one in particular that had us laughing out loud, but you’ll probably find your own.

The Grammy winner is not only writing TV theme songs, but he’s wrapping up work on his new album, “Wheelhouse,” which will come out April 9.

“It’s all about leaving your comfort zone,” explained Paisley in a statement.  “It’s like what is my wheelhouse? You know, the baseball expression, sort of what is in your strike zone, your wheelhouse, where you’re comfortable. We really have tried to go out on a limb with this record and see how far we can stretch certain things.”

Paisley produced the album himself. It includes first single, “Southern Comfort Zone,” which is No. 8 this week on Billboard’s Country Songs chart.
