“Like a Paisley Cowboy: Queer country band kicks off music festival. A country band with songs about romance between urban cowboys kicks off the 10th annual Brooklyn Country Music Festival on Aug. 20. The Paisley Fields, a five-piece country outfit with an openly gay frontman, will perform on the opening night of the four-day festival at the Bell House. Wilson, who writes songs about tortured love affairs with other men, says that the country genre lends itself to storytellers from all walks of life. “I think country music is just about stories,” said Wilson. “And there are so many stories in New York and peoples’ lives intertwine so often.””
