Country music artist Brad Paisley brought the house down with his parody song of the transgender bathroom issue.

Paisley claimed on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Tuesday night that country music had addressed the issue long ago, and then offered “proof.”

Playing off the 1960’s Tammy Wynette standard, “Stand By Your Man,” he followed the song’s opening lyrics, “Sometimes it’s hard to be a woman,” with, “especially if you were born a man.”

His closing lyrics seemed to take issue with North Carolina’s public restroom law that requires people to use the facilities that correspond with the sex as indicated on their birth certificate.

“Why is this such a big deal? Hike up your dress, and take a stand. And sit by your man,” he sang.

It was announced this week that Paisley will once again host the Country Music Awards this fall with Carrie Underwood.

So excited I am returning to host The 50th Annual CMA Awards w/ @BradPaisley Nov 2 on @abcnetwork! #CMAawards50

Kimmel also addressed the issue of public restrooms. His beef was with clever bathroom identification.
