Brad Paisley knows a thing or two about country music. Now the singer has written and recorded his ode to his love.
At the recent CMA Awards Brad performed his latest single This Is Country Musicand the crowd of stars cheered in approval with the fans at home. The song is a mid-tempo or so song and the lyrics are all about country music – history, so called guidelines, and what the genre means to Paisley.
In the song Paisley mentions that country has been treated like the step child for most of music history. Hipsters always laugh at the country folks when they sing about trucks, mama, and the country they love – the people they love. Well that’s what the foundation of country music was built on and that’s how things will always be. Country is still the biggest genre of music in the nation and for good reason.
It’s always a big risk in my opinion to record a song like this. When artist sing about Nashville and country music it can hit with fans or fall flat. This song seemed to win with fans because Brad wrote it as a fan of country music rather than writing it as an artist.
Brad has been country music’s most consistent hitmaker over the last 7 or so years and this single is already shooting straight up the charts and will likely become another top hit for Brad. It’s almost like he’s chasing the great George Strait with the run of number ones.
