Brad Paisley is working on a movie based on his new single, called “I Can’t Change the World.” The project is fictional but based on true stories, according to Brad, who recently told tasteofcountry.com that the film is centered on today’s digitally-focused society and the sense of disconnect from community that technology has brought.
Brad said, “This song is very important. It’s a really timely love song. It wouldn’t have worked 30 years ago as well as it will now. It’s written for the time we live in. Technology, instead of connecting us, it starts to separate us. It makes you want to hide in your house. You feel helpless. This song and this film project examines the lives of several people as they start to realize that they have to figure this thing out. Giving up isn’t the answer. Hiding in your house isn’t the answer. Changing this planet is hard to do for any one person, but if you make a difference in any one else’s life, yours has meaning.”
Filming will reportedly begin sometime this month.
