It was a sad day Thursday. The world lost a great actor when Burt Reynolds died at 82 of cardiac arrest.
Brad Paisley paid tribute to "The Bandit" by pulling out his guitar and playing the Don Williams classic "If Hollywood Don't Need You." There is a line in the chorus of the song that says "if you see Burt Reynolds, would you shake his hand for me and tell ol' Burt I've seen all his movies," so this was a perfect song for Brad to sing. Brad captioned his post with "When Bob McDill writes the entire chorus of a #1 Don Williams song about someone, that says it all. Rest In Peace Burt Reynolds. You showed us country boys how to be cool. #thebandit #eastboundandup#burtreynolds #donwilliams #bobmcdill"
What a beautiful tribute! Burt Reynolds will certainly be missed.
