Jun 24, 2013Naming your album This Is Country Music takes a lot of guts that not many current country stars could pull off,but Brad Paisley rises to the challenge and passes with flying colors.
Whether it's Commercial Country,Pop Country,Classic Country of even Bluegrass,Brad makes sure he touches base with every country sound there is.
There's the clever take on Alabama songs Old Alabama,and the seriously catchy Working On A Tan which also has a little Beach Boys vibe to it.The other great up tempos include Be The Lake,Don't Drink The Water(with Blake Shelton),Camouflage and Toothbrush.
There's also some classic soppy Brad ballads, such as New Favorite Memory and Love Her Like She's Leavin' with Don Henley providing some awesome harmonies.
Plus the standout power ballad Remind Me with Carrie Underwood.This song will easily be in the run for Song of the Year!
Brad also touches the heart with A Man Don't Have To Die and the heart breaking One Of Those Lives,both will leave you thinking.
He rounds off the album with the Bluegrass themed Gospel song Life's Railway To Heaven.
This album is an all round example of what real Country music is all about.This will satisfy long standing Brad Paisley fans and introduce new ones.
THIS is country music people!
