Biography

A rock provides a major clue to the heartbeat of Brad Paisley’s Wheelhouse.

The piece, a silhouette of Paisley’s homestate West Virginia, is embedded in one of two stone walls of the drum room in his converted home studio. The state represents the place where he first acquired the skills that coalesced into one of contemporary country’s most important careers. The ... Read more in Amazon's Brad Paisley Store

5.0 out of 5 stars New Country Meets Traditional Country July 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I don't care for the new country music in general. It reminds me more of pop music from by-gone decades.
Brad Paisley is different. His music sounds a lot more like traditional country. He reminds me of a few country icons from the past that play guitar as well as they sing, something along the lines of Merle Haggard or Marty Stuart(who contributed on the last track).

The title track leads off an exceptionally strong cd. The song lyrics are something a lot of country fans can identify with personally. It winds down with Paisley listing some great song titles from country's past such as "I Walk The Line" and "Stand By Your Man" and more.
The guitar licks are well-played and flawless. This song is my favorite of many from Brad Paisley.

"Old Alabama" serves not only as a tribute to the band but also includes them performing. A very nice touch and a great song!

Another song that made an immediate impression was "Life's Railway To Heaven". It's a bluegrass song and I'm really happy that Paisley included a song from that category!

As always, he includes some "tongue-in-cheek" part humor,part love ballad tunes as only Brad Paisley can tastefully put them together."Toothbrush" and "Be The Lake" seem to fit the bill on this cd.

A gem on this cd that might get overlooked among the other songs that get a lot of airtime on country radio is "A Man Don't Have To Die." The gripping lyrics about everyday life for so many in these trying economic times make a sad point that Paisley didn't overlook.
"See a man don't have to die to go to hell.No you don't have to die to go to hell."

This cd is typical Brad Paisley featuring his versatile guitar skill on a Telecaster and his voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Country Music" Gets Defined By Paisley May 23, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Prime Cuts: Remind Me (with Carrie Underwood), Love Her Like She's Leaving (with Don Henley), Toothbrush

Over the years, many have attempted to give definition to country music. But no one has had the audacity to name their record "This is Country Music." Not until Brad Paisley. With such an overarching and dauntless title, Paisley has a lot to live up to. And over the course of these 15 tracks he rarely disappoints. If country music is defined as songs that deal with the issues of life, then these songs past muster. Just like his previous albums, Paisley rarely disappoints. On one hand, he continues to wax eloquence about his romantic felicity with great attention paid to details. Yet, on the other hand, he has the ability to keep things light and engaging with his wily take on some of life's keening observations. Watch especially for the ways of how Paisley can take a cliché, a thought, a cultural trend or an urban myth and turn them around into a song of fun and even of acute inspiration. And just like his previous 9 albums, producer Frank Rogers is again on the helm keeping the production lean and lanky, yet bringing out the consummate guitarist in Paisley is supernal ways.

One reason why Paisley excels as a songwriter is that he doesn't resign himself to singing the vanilla "I love you and I need you" songs. Rather, when he describes about the need to keep his connubial bliss alive, he does it by giving us so many practical ways in the power duet with Carrie Underwood "Remind Me." Expanding his scope of duet partners to Don Henley, on "Love Her Like She's Living" Paisley sits on the Dr. Love seat in diagnosing how to make love last.

Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Without a doubt, Brad Paisley IS the voice of country music in this decade. Every song on this album is phenomenal, and exemplifies the very core of the genre. I would be hard pressed to say that there is a single bad track in the bunch, indeed there are MANY single worthy numbers here. Camouflage, Remind Me, Love Her Like She's Leavin' and New Favorite Memory could easily be top 10 performers. This is country music at its finest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brad Paisley hits it out ofthe park! May 23, 2011
By netteo
Format:Audio CD
I love Brad Paisley but haven't always bought his CD's - just singles. However, with so much buzz about This Is Country Music I decided that I was going to jump in and get the full CD. LOVE IT!!!! Not sure what that other guy has against Carrie Underwood - Remind Me is my favorite song off the CD. The knowledge that Brad delayed release of this CD because he wanted Remind Me on it means it is a song Brad wanted recorded and wanted to record it with Carrie. IMO their vocals mesh perfectly. The vulnerability of Carrie and Brad mixed with the desire to reconnect with the passion and romance in their marriage/relationship is incredible. I also love Love Her Like Shes Leaving, A Man Don't Have to Die, One of Those Lives, New Favorite Memory. Brad's fun songs and his rocking songs also just hit home.

Great job Brad! Thanks for including wonderful partners (especially Carrie and Don Henley and Alabama!). Hope others appreciate your work as much as I do!

5.0 out of 5 stars This album grabs my heart and squeezes it! September 23, 2011
Format:Audio CD
The songs "A Man Don't Have to Die," "Remind Me," and "This is Country Music" are so darn good, they bring me to my knees. THIS IS country music!!! Incredible music and harmony, beatiful lyrics, and gorgeous vocals. This is an album so incredibly good, you can't stop playing it. My favorite country singer is Keith Urban, but BP is a close second and gaining fast!
