It’s almost easy to forget that Brad Paisley cranks out hits all the time. It’s like country fans take his consistency for granted. He just releases hit after hit and we love hearing it on the radio, but we just kind of forget that Brad has something like 30 huge hits from the last dozen years or so.
Brad is back with another single from his upcoming album. It’s another potential chart topper and I think it’s one of the best of his career. Check it out for yourself.
Beat This Summer – Brad Paisley
At one point in his career Brad Paisley had a run of 10 straight number one hits. It was pretty crazy. That really doesn’t happen very often. I think Alabama still is the leader with something like 20 straight or something crazy. Blake Shelton is somewhere around 10 in a row right now so we’ll see if he can keep it going.
Brad has kind of faltered just a little bit with his last few singles. They’ve still been huge, but not the kind of hits he’s had in the past.
I think he’s back with this single. It’s the classic summer song about summer love. You find the boy or girl of your dreams and fall in love. Then you’re left with only the memory of that summer as you both go your separate ways. We’ve heard the story before, but Brad tells it in a great new way.
The music in this song is really cool. There are hooks everywhere. It’s ultra-catchy. I find myself singing along with the chorus even when the song is not playing.
That’s usually a good indication of a hit song.
