Lee Feldman, a terminally ill Pennsylvania man, had one wish: to give a custom made guitar—his prized possession—to someone who could make use of it after he died. For Feldman, that person was none other than Brad Paisley.
"I had this dream," Feldman told Fox 43 in Harrisburg, PA. "And I said, 'Who can I find that can play the frets off a guitar?' And the voice came out and it said, 'Brad Paisley.'"
Feldman, who is stricken with pancreatic cancer, reached out to Paisley, whose grandfather had died from the same disease, and who had taught him to play the guitar.
Not only did Paisley accept the instrument, he told Feldman that he'd play it on his next record—a gesture that was music to Feldman's ears:
"I don't want that guitar to be a trophy. I didn't want it to sit and collect dust. I want somebody to play it, and that's why I gave it to him."
