Country Music News | Brad Paisley


Brad Paisley is everything he’s supposed to be: a nice guy who’s actually nice, a “country” man who celebrates his surroundings without disrespecting others’, a wise man who even at his absolute nadir understood that he has no idea what it’s like in someone else’s skin. He also plays a ton of guitar and turns more clever phrases than Robert Downey Jr. and writes his own damn songs. He makes soft-focus mush like marriages and fatherhood and whiskey and fishing sound like a blast, except when he’s breaking your heart, and he virtually never means to hurt anyone. He’s the rightful successor to his ’90s analog, the witty, hearty, hooky Garth Brooks, and next month he releases Love and War, which will have collaborations with Mick Jagger and Timbaland.
