Brad Paisley reaches back for new single
Wednesday, June 18, 2008
– Brad Paisley released a new single "Waitin' on a Woman" after four number one songs in a row from "5th Gear," but the song is not even from that album. The song came from Paisley's previous disc, "Time Well Wasted."
According to Paisley's publicist, "the scheduled release of his '5th Gear' album had initially precluded the song's release as a single."
Andy Griffith will appear in the video for the song due out in late June. "One of the greatest moments in my career was getting to shoot this video with Andy Griffith and getting to know him," said Paisley. "I'll cherish this video and opportunity to become friends with this wonderful and influential man for the rest of my life. 'Waitin' on a Woman' is one of the most important songs I've recorded; it's a masterpiece written by Wynn Varble and Don Sampson, and the video demanded excellence and art to match the composition. Andy was my number one choice for the video - he is the perfect person that embodies wisdom, years, and personality of the character in the video."
Along with its inclusion on "Time Well Wasted, "fans can also be watching for "Waitin' on a Woman" with its addition on new pressings of "5th Gear." Paisley already has enjoyed number one songs with "Ticks," "Online," "Letter to Me" and "I'm Still a Guy."

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. ...
