Brad Paisley is a highly celebrated country music artist, that’s no argument. The artists has sold over 12 million albums, scooped up three Grammy Awards, 14 Academy of Country Music Awards, 14 Country Music Association Awards, and two American Music Awards. He’s even earned country music’s crowning achievement, becoming a member of the Grand Ole Opry.
The magic in Brad’s writing is often from hilarious inspiration where he says exactly what he thinks about human habits.
1. “Online”from: ‘5th Gear’ (2007)
This song has spot-on honesty and perception about the difference between reality vs your online persona:
“Online I live in Malibu / I posed for Calvin Klein, I’ve been in GQ,”
Then shares the reality of:
“In real life the only time I / Ever even been to L.A. / Was when I got the chance with the marching band / To play tuba in the Rose Parade.”
