The country singer performed “Letter to Me,” “Today” and “Last Time for Everything,” all of which are ideal songs for teenagers about to venture into the adult world.

“My advice to you, as you go through life, is to enjoy the moments,” Paisley told the graduating class. “Make memories, enjoy them, and don’t take yourself too seriously. Go change the world, you all.”
