The MJ Show #36 (Brad Paisley)

'Twas about time that I did a special on a country artist. And of all of the current guys who're rocking the country world if I had to choose one guy to kick things off with, I guess it'd have to be Brad Paisley!
Not only is he a brilliant singer and songwriter but like another man whose music I love, he is also a KILLER guitar player.
Don't believe me...never heard of him...well, then let tonight's show open your eyes to one of the most incredible country music stars around.
So here we go...tonight I'm going to take you through the brilliant discography of BRAD PAISLEY!

Album #1 - Who Needs Pictures (1999)
He kicked things off with a hit album which had some brilliant singles, two of which even made it to the #1 spot on the Billboard Country Music Charts.
Here are some of the best songs from the album.

1st Song - Brad Paisley - Me Neither #TheMJshow

2nd Song - Brad Paisley - We Danced #TheMJshow

3rd Song - Brad Paisley - He Didn't Have To Be #TheMJshow

4th Song - Brad Paisley - I've Been Better #TheMJshow

Album #2 - Part II (2001)
This went on to be his second Platinum certified album and once again, it had some massive hits for him. Check out these songs...

7th Song - Brad Paisley - I'm Gonna Miss Her #TheMJshow

8th Song - Brad Paisley - Too Country #TheMJshow

Album #3 - Mud On The Tires (2003)
Possibly my favourite Brad Paisley album...and it is that just because of the incredible songs and guitar playing he's packed into this one.
Released in 2003, it produced four hit singles on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks charts: the Top Five hits "Celebrity", "Little Moments" and "Whiskey Lullaby", as well as the Number One title track. The album itself has been certified 2× Multi-Platinum by the RIAA, while "Whiskey Lullaby" and the title-track have been certified as gold singles.

LOVE this next song. Beautiful lyrics!
11th Song - Brad Paisley - Ain't Nothin' Like #TheMJshow

Of all the songs on this album though, the next one here, is my favourite. You can't help but smile when you hear this.
If you're in'll love this a lot more. If you're not, you'll wish you were just to have...little moments like the ones he sings about.
12th Song - Brad Paisley - Little Moments #TheMJshow

I'm assuming the video here isn't the original one...but it's perfect!
No one writes sad songs like country singers. What a song!

But to me, baby you are the world" :)
17th Song - Brad Paisley - The World #TheMJshow

18th Song - Brad Paisley - Waiting On A Woman #TheMJshow

Incidentally, all of the original videos for Brad's songs don't have embedding allowed which is why I've chosen to give you these versions of the songs.
I would however really recommend you see the original video of this song. It's incredible!

Okay, now this is just the perfect song for anyone in love :) Okay what the heck...this one also goes out for all you other guys. You can dedicate it to the girl you love :)

Album #5 - Brad Paisley Christmas (2006)
His first album of Christmas music, it features a mix of traditional Christmas songs and newly-written songs. The track "Born on Christmas Day" was written by Paisley when he was thirteen years old, and the recording features elements from a recording Paisley made of the song in 1985.

Check out this next one. He does this in all his albums :)
He's got this skit kind of thing that goes on and it's super funny. Check it out...

Another incredible song coming your way. Love the writing on this song.

34th Song - Brad Paisley - Welcome To The Future #TheMJshow

That about covers his discography till now. 8 brilliant albums.
But wait...I've got more for you.

You know how I love John Mayer :) Apparently, so does Brad!
They jammed together on a show called "CMT Crossroads" and I want to give you a song or two from there. Actually, I'm going to give you four!

First up, here are the two guitar heros doing one of Brad's songs. Love the way John sings this one. Absolutely brilliant!
Bonus Song - Brad Paisley & John Mayer - Little Moments

And now, check out John and Brad taking on one of my favourite Clapton songs.
Bonus Song - Brad Paisley & John Mayer - Old Love #TheMJshow

One of my favourite John Mayer blues ballads is coming up next. Check out Brad on this.
Bonus Song - John Mayer & Brad Paisley - Come Back To Bed #TheMJshow

This song, coming up next, is honestly in my opinion, the finest version of "Daughters" that I've ever heard...and it's all because of Brad Paisley.
Look at John standing beside him watching him sing. If I could read his mind I'd say he was probably thinking "Damn! This is how the song should be done!" :)
Bonus Song - John Mayer & Brad Paisley - Daughters #TheMJshow

And that my friends is all the show I have for you tonight :)
I hope that if you weren't a country music fan before this, you're willing to give it a shot now.
There's great music in every genre...and there's a LOT of great music in Country. :)

Right's time for me to say...take care and have a nice day!

This is your Musicman Mihir, signing off!
