10. Long Sermon

“The only well known co-writer featured is Tim Nichols and they collaborated to produce the witty and tongue in cheek opening track ” Long Sermon ” -deep it aint but it is charming and pertinent with a lively infectious bounce to it.”

9. Don’t Breathe

“Don’t Breathe” is another fun one…”fun” might be an odd description of a song about heartache, but I do think it’s Paisley’s intention in this one.”

8. Cloud of Dust

“Brad Paisley was one of the most prolific and interesting mainstream Country artists of the 2000s. This debut album, put out in 1999, is pretty much a blueprint of what a Brad Paisley album has to look like (not counting the Christmas and instrumental one).”

7. Who Needs Pictures

“Fans of Brad Paisley would definitely do well to pick this album up if they don’t yet have it…while Mud on the Tires is probably his best effort yet, Who Needs Pictures is a solid runner-up.”

6. I’ve Been Better

“Even after listening to this disc for the past year, it still blows me away every time I hear it. This guy is an excellent singer and songwriter, a clever/comical lyricist, and a MINDBLOWING guitarist.”

5. It Never Woulda Worked Out Anyway

“Hopefully, this is a vision of things to come from Brad Paisley. A knockout first effort that surpases a lot of the new stuff from some of the older stars that have grown kind of stale. I only hope Brad keeps it up for his albums on down the line. This, friends, is country music. It makes you laugh, it tugs at your heartstrings, it makes you a little weepy.”

4. Me Neither

“Me Neither” is hilarious on the first couple of listens…though I found it to be short on lasting power. Still, while the novelty of the lyrics wears off somewhat quickly, there’s some excellent guitar work pinned on the end of that one.”

3. We Danced

“We Danced” is a great example of a country ballad that just hits all the right notes. “We Danced” is another great ballad that comes in a close second for me. The lyrics aren’t quite as deep as “He Didn’t Have To Be,” but they’re still very pleasant to listen to.”

2. In the Garden

“If you care about good modern Country music that respects the past but happens in the present, Brad has some of the best to offer. His later albums are even better and more consistent, but this has some songs I wouldn’t want to be without.”

1. He Didn’t Have to Be

“He Didn’t Have To Be” touches on the issues of step fathers. But of course, you already know this, because these were popular singles on radio, and rightly so. An attractive song with a positive message about family.”
