Brad Paisley invites Boston police officers to sing when he plays Mansfield

When country music star Brad Paisley makes a tour stop in Mansfield this summer, he may be joined on stage by a pair of unlikely guests: two members of the Boston Police Department who recently won online fame with their performance of “Cop Pool Karaoke.’’

On Wednesday night, the singer tweeted an invite to officers Stephen McNulty and Kim Tavares to sing at his August show. In a video posted online earlier this week, the officers sang a stirring duet of “God Bless America’’ while driving through Boston, a performance that quickly ricocheted across the Internet.

“Happy 4th everyone!’’ Paisley wrote. “Oh and if you officers wanna sing when I play MA in August, open invite.’’


Boton police officials quickly accepted the invitation.

“Hey @BradPaisley, our officers would be honored to sing with you when you come to town in August,’’ they replied. “Consider the invitation warmly and enthusiastically accepted. #Happy4thofJuly2018!!!’’

Paisley is scheduled to play the Xfinity Center in Mansfield on August 11.
