    American Saturday Night is the best work Brad Paisley has put out yet! From the lyrics to the instrumental Brad has truly out done himself with this album.

    For someone who greatly despises Top-40 country music, American Saturday Night is an example that country can be commercial while still being extremely good and meaningful without getting cliche or sappy. Paisley will shine brightly this year. Maybe his best record to date.

  1. On the whole, American Saturday Night is one of his dreamier albums, filled with swaying slow dances, sweet love tunes, and the occasional brokenhearted blues, all delivered with a worn-in ease.
  2. It's very much a smartly produced album that, while adhering to the blueprint for commercial-radio country music, successfully lassos a loose party vibe.
  3. Here, he drops that lovable detritus, going for constant home runs.
