So it’s a shame that today’s track, from Paisley’s 2017 album Love and War, doesn’t live up to its predecessors. It sounds to me like somebody trying to write a Brad Paisley love song but not quite hitting the mark.
I discovered Brad Paisley in 2009 after the release of his best album, American Saturday Night. That album opened my mind to country music in general and I have since sought out and loved the music of quite a few artists in the genre.
I also gobbled up Paisley’s previous work and found those albums, especially Mud on the Tracks and Time Well Wasted, just as fresh and exciting. In 2011, Paisley released This Is Country Music, and while it wasn’t the equal of those other albums it was damn close.
