10. The Cigar Song

“This song was certainly unusual. It tells the story of a guy who takes out an insurance policy on a box of Cuban cigars and then cashes in on it after he smokes them all. Cute.”

9. Ain’t Nothin’ Like

“This song is so Alan Jackson, you can’t help but check the lyric sheet to see if he had a co-write. It is a cheerful, “aww shucks” kind of song that you will be singing along to before you know it.”

8. Famous People

“Hilarious! This fun song is a great look at fame from the eyes of a small town kind of guy.  “Famous People,” which is an unnecessary rehash of the exact same theme, and signals the album’s sideways slide during its second half.”

7. The Best Thing That I Had Goin’

“Money isn’t everything.” That’s the message behind this tune. I love shuffle beat and the rolling banjo throughout the song. From my perspective, the cream of the crop in country music comes from Paisley, and if you like country music in any form, or if you have more discriminating tastes, or even if you aren’t particularly a fan of country music, you’re certain to find plenty of hits worth listening to several times on this CD.”

6. Spaghetti Western Swing

“Paisley introduces the modern country fan to real legends like George Jones, Little Jimmie Dickens and Bill Anderson as they sit in on the “Spaghetti Western” song. I love Jimmy Dickens. George Jones and him are hilarious in this half spoken word, half instrumental tune. Definitely a fun tune to tap your foot to.”

5. Is It Raining at Your House

“A very well written song. I love the idea and Brad carries it off well. It’s refreshing to hear an artist who knows who he is. Paisley doesn’t evolve – doesn’t find himself, doesn’t create or follow trends. All he does is write & perform great music.”

4. Mud on the Tires

“This was a great opener. The opening of the song is simple and clean with just an acoustic guitar and Brad singing. Then the chorus comes in with a great melody and country shuffle beat that gets you tapping your foot instantly.”

3. Celebrity

“Celebrity” takes a stab at Hollywood’s latest “get famous quick” fad. Brad’s first single off the album. The whole concept is great, especially for those of us that are less than impressed with the current reality TV trend.”

2. Little Moments

“I love this song. As I said to my wife, “This is the funniest romantic song I have ever heard.” This song demonstrates one of my favorite aspects about Brad’s music: He does not just write songs about new love or lost love. He often writes songs about the day to day of being in love.”

1. Whiskey Lullaby

“This is my absolute favorite song on the entire album. The lyrics and melody of this song are outstanding. You will simply find yourself transfixed the first time you listen to this song. Alison Krauss’ voice blends with Brad’s wonderfully.”
