Country singer Brad Paisley took the stage over at RODEOHOUSTON for his 13th performance, but a picture taken before the concert is going viral.

The picture is not a shot of the country singer, but rather a pair of empty seats reserved for George and Barbara Bush.

The picture was posted on  Facebook around 6:35 p.m. on Saturday. Once it hit social media, the picture was shared thousands of times.

Well done RodeoHouston. Well done.
