Brad Paisley notches another number one single
Wednesday, January 23, 2008
– Brad Paisley achieved his tenth number one and and sixth consecutive number one of his career with "Letter To Me." Paisley took over the top spot from long-running number one, Taylor Swift, whose "Our Song" was there for six consecutive weeks. The charts officially are released Thursday.
In the song, Paisley takes a look back in time and gives his 17 year old self advice on what really is important in life.
This Saturday, Jan. 26, Paisley takes the stage of PBS's Austin City Limits for his third appearance, showcasing his hits and guitar expertise.
"I learned so much about guitar by watching Austin City Limits. You don't see musical creativity on award shows or variety shows or especially now reality shows. They restrict you too much. But Austin City Limits is up to the artist. I loved performances by Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eric Johnson, The Desert Rose Band, Steve Wariner, Thom Bresch, Chet, ...I guess all the guitar greats. It's the perfect venue for a player to stretch out," said Paisley.

Nevertheless, Paisley in concert and captured on ...
Brad Paisley has grown up on his eighth album. Yes, the West Virginian maintains a sense of humor, but apparently aging has left its mark on a maturing singer who has never forsaken his country roots. That is ever so apparent in songs like Anything Like Me and Oh Yeah, You're Gone. The former finds Paisley looking at the passage of time through his son's life in a tender, but not sappy look. On the latter, he's a five-year-old boy who doesn't get what he wants, which his grandfather notices. ...
